  4. which rims to buy

    This thread is helping me out alot guys! I've narrowed my rim selection down to both of these AFS wheels , 34ford were those black chrome rims purchased off of ebay? Also TR03Mach1 would your stock center caps fit in those heritage chrome wheels? I noticed you had the black cobra centercaps.
     
  5. Hey Dennis, car is looking good buddy! :nice:

    Yes, the stock center caps will fit the AFS wheels, which all come with the Cobra caps. I had some issues getting the stock rims off (broke the key on one wheel, TWICE. Finally had to cold chisel the wheel lock off and purchase a new set of lugs and lock!) so I was just content to get the wheels on. Once I got them mounted, I realized I hadn't changed the center caps, but by that time, both my wife and granddaughter said they liked the look of the snakes, so I figured I wouldn't make a special effort to change them until maybe the first brake pad replacement time rolls around! :D BTW, I got the wheels and tires off an AFS auction on eBay for just a tick over $1100, mounted, balanced, and delivered to my door!

  7. Yes, I did buy them off of Ebay. But......I bought the all chrome ones for $612 and then painted the black myself.
    Saved a bunch of money. :D

    Your also looking good there TR03 :nice:

  8. WOW those look great!!! thats a great looking Mach!!1
     

  9. I have the same wheels you do although I did by mine already painted. I though about going to 17 X 9 / 17 X 10.5 but only come in all chrome. How did you paint yours? Did you powercoat them?
     

  10. Well I do have a powder coat gun, but I couldn't bring myself to putting the new rims in a oven at 350 degrees :rolleyes:

    So I taped the spokes off and sanded the chrome for the paint to get some bite.
    Then used a black spray enamel then covered with a clear coat of polyurethane.
