    I have a 2003 v6 mustang. I have the tropic green color. I was wondering what wheels I should buy. And I am also interested in used rims as well if anyone has some they want to sell.

    check craigslist locally... look up auto parts.. then type mustang or mustang wheel in the search.....you should be able to find some v6 rims for about $50 a piece.. there were some here recently in b'ham, al for $200 with tires mounted for a nice set.... older wheels might be cheaper... 94-2004 wheels should fit fine.. you are looking for a 16 inch rim ....good luck

    have you thought about painting your wheels black? i did mine a few months ago for about $20. It's really cheap and it makes your car look 10000x better. And if you paint your wheels you might have enough money left over for some Falken tires :D

    haha funny you say that because I have painted my rims with plasti dip. But now I am looking for a clean look on my mustang. I like the black and green I have but the painted rims make it look like I cut corners (which I did). But with a nice set of rims they can totally change your cars look. so that is what I am trying to achieve a clean looking mustang

    I had to buy a new rim for my car about two years ago after I had punctured mine. (long story).

    If you can't find anything locally, there is nothing wrong with going the eBay route like I did.

    No problem. I am interested to see what you come up with if you find some you like.

    How about a gold or maybe bronze wheel? I think that would look good against your green.
