    Picked these up from a local guy that had 2 sets of wheels for his car. He traded his car in at the dealership and told me about the other set of wheels. I think I'm going to go with a 5 spoke setup though.

    The are for 05-12 Mustangs, v6, GT, and GT500's.

    These are Forgeline ZX3R Wheels. 19x10.5 Rear w/ 285/35/19 Pirelli PZero Rosso Tires. Fronts are 19x9.5 w/275/35/19 Pirelli PZero Rosso Tires. The tires only have about 1000 miles on them. The car he traded only had 2100 miles on it.

    1 Rim has 2 nicks in the chrome lip. One valve stem is leaking as well. I have already purchased a new set of valve stems that come with the wheels along with a set of lugs, plus locking lugs.

    The wheels are 3 piece forged. They have the chrome lip option and centercap option. If you build these on Forgelines site, the cost new is $4860. The tires are roughly $1800 for the set of 4. Around $5600 in wheels and tires.

    I am asking $3000 for the set plus shipping. I'm in the Cincinnati area. If the wheels are paid for I would be willing to bring them to NMRA Columbus, or NMRA Bowling Green at no charge for pickup. Another option, if you like the wheels, but would like a different color center is to have the centers redone. Forgeline is located about 45 minutes from me. If you decided you wanted to have the centers redonee. I would be willing to drop them at Forgeline for no charge. They quoted me $750 to redo all the centers. I believe a new chrome ring can be had for $300 as well.

    These should clear any big brake kit as well. The car had a huge set of brembos on it as pictured in the last picture.

    Replied

    Price lowered to $2500 as well.

    A little about Forgeline too.

    ForgeLine shares your passion for automobiles. It is that passion that drives us to manufacture the highest quality wheels on the market. We are also racers. That gives us an advantage with the insight on how to build wheels that will meet today’s extreme demands of sports car racing.

    Customers agree, as we are used by racers in Grand Am, ALMS, SCCA Pro Racing, as well as virtually every amateur sports car series in the United States of America.

    The main characteristic of ForgeLine wheels is that they are designed for strength and performance. The knowledge gained over the last 15 years is reflected in the product. Our competition wheel, the ZX3R, uses titanium bolts and military-spec lightweight jet-nuts to reduce weight in the most critical point - the perimeter of the wheel. The forged wheel center also has unnecessary aluminum removed to reduce the weight as much as possible without sacrificing strength. And to optimize further, the rim material is lighter and stronger with the use of 6061-T6 aluminum.
