    Very very seriously thinking about Mach 1s if i can get them staggered and dished...I hear they're one of the heaviest Ford rims ever though?

    Haha yea, mine clocked in around 26-28 lbs, IIRC. They do look great dished, though.

    Drop that girl down another inch or two and it screams awesomeness. Hope your power plant backs up the attitude of that hood!

She sounds just as mean as she looks too. JBA shorties MAC off road h pipe and Bassani cat back exhaust. Thanks bud! People dang near break there necks staring at her ever time I go out. It's my daily no trailer queens at my house build it drive or don't build it at all is how I look at things!

    The '94-'97 Cobra wheels look like they were made for 4-eyes. The look 100 times better on those cars. I had a set of '94-'95 Cobra wheels on my '86 when I converted it. Best appearance mod I ever did to that car.

    Thanks guys... I did a 5 lug conversion just for them wheels. I've always been a fan of TRX's, but well... yeah... the Cobras I got on sorta reminds me of TRX's in certain angles, so I went with them. I'm curious to see what they'll look like on 82GT and pace car.
