Wheel & Tire Combos - list yours here:

Discussion in '2005 - 2009 Specific Tech' started by Big-Foot, Aug 27, 2005.

  1. Sal - Your car looks really nice man!!!

    Remember me from the ffcobra forum? :D

    Anyways - I'm going to take a look at these Mach1 wheels I have and see if I can mill off some on the backside. I already own the wheels and am not using them on the FFR Cobra so I might as well see if I can make them work on the 2005.

    Thanks for the idea!
  2. Sal, that's the CDC agressive spoiler, isn't it? Do you have problems with speed bumps? I have one I'm going to install soon and I've lowered my car 1.25" - I want to be able to get in & out of my apt complex and parking garage at work lol.
  3. If you're really worried go for the Classic Chin Spoiler instead of the agressive one. It's a little more subtle but it still looks sexy as hell.

  4. How's the fit on those FR500's. I like the look of them but wasnt sure if the offset from the 04 mustang would fit my 05 GT.

    Im also looking for a good set of one piece forged aluminum wheels, lighter and stronger. Would appreciate recommendations and pics of any that have been mounted.
  5. I am rolling on Boyd Coddington Smoothies. front: 20 x 8.5 Rolling stock:255/35/20 front :275/35/20 rear

  6. These are made for the '05. They have a +36mm offset so they fit just right.
  7. If you don't mind me asking. How much did the rims/tires cost you?

    I really like the black rims with silver trim on the 05. I saw one just like yours here in Vegas, looks nice.
  8. I bought the car used....and they were already installed. So I didnt pay a dime :p

    They guy I bought it from told me he purchased the whole wheel / tire combo from Boyd.

    If you click on the rim link in my sig, the prices are there. I think they run $895.00 + additional $100.00 for powder coating......so around a grand a peice for the rims give or take. Not sure how much the tires added to the package. :shrug:

  9. Here you go:

  10. Yes, it's the aggressive version. I have scraped it a few times so far, have to be careful. BUT, my car is 2 inches lower than stock. One inch from the pro drop, and 1 inch from the shorter tires. I have a customer with that spoiler on a stock suspension and stock wheel car and it's way higher up.
  11. Those are some nice rims :nice:

    They seem to be real popular with the GTO crowd as well. Seems to be the only rim that looks good with the body design.
  12. Looks very nice :nice: :cheers:
  13. Wishing for 'real' Retro Wheels

    I've been hoping that someone would come out with a true retro Rally Wheel in 17" or 18".

    there are a variety of fine designs from the late 60's, early 70's that could be scaled up sucessfully.

    two examples: 54seriesa.jpg 53seriesa.jpg

    This generation of Mustangs deserves the best!

  15. Thanks, Sal. I can be careful, but if I'm not going to clear the speed bumps in the parking garage at work and my apt complex no matter how careful I am, it won't be a good idea for me to install it. Sounds like I'll be OK though, I'm only about an inch, maybe an inch and a quarter lower than stock in the front.
  16. Thanks. I know, trust me, those centers are going on, just haven't had the time to buy them yet. Too busy working on the II.

    Btw, these are specially made for the '05 by AFS, which is why they fit so well. They make them in all chrome too, so if you're looking for the Mach 1 style, that is the way I would go.
  17. The mag. 500's I can deal with, but no way on the other. That wheel would in no way look good on the new design.

  18. :stupid:

  19. Man, I hope thats photoshopped. That looks hideous :nonono:
