    Are these the same SSR GT-10's?

    Yours are really shiny. These rims I attached look kind of flat. They are noted as being

    Hand-painted with polished outer rim and clearcoat

    Finish: Silver w/Machined Lip

    Are they the same as yours? They are from a BMW M3 E46 and I'm hoping I can slip them onto my 05 Mustang GTwithout any mounting conversion. Thanks!

    question for anyone with aftermarket wheels that maybe can answer my question..............normally when purchasing staggered wheels meaning
    (19x9......19x10)......normally i see people using a tire setup the have different sidewall heights like 245-(45)-19 front and 275-(40)-19 i guess to even the height of the sidewall out between front and rear tires? (correct?)

    so how come for instance on saleen equipped cars the wheels do not follow the same kind of setup, like on the parnelli car it uses a 19x9 19x10 wheels
    but the tires are
    front : 275x40x19
    Rear : 285x40x19
    :shrug:

    the thing is, the tires look even in sidewall height on the saleen:shrug:
    as well as cars with the staggered tire setup?............i dont get it????:bang:

    in a 275/40/17 tire, the tread is 275mm, but the sidewall aspect ratio is 40. this means that a 40 series tire is not the same height for all 17" wheels. 275 and 285 width tires are very close in width, so the same sidewall aspect ratio would make for a very similar height. the difference is so small that it is unnoticable. if you look at a tire manufacturers specs, it will list the overall diameter of various size tires. the diameter might be off .10" this difference is so small, that the tires are usually considered the same diameter.

    hope that explains it a little better for you. if not, let me know. :nice:

    The ones in your pic look similar, but I can't tell if they're the same from so far away. Here are a couple of pages of pics of mine, though. They're definitely more shiny than the pic of just the rim above my car in the earlier posts.

    Those are the best looking wheels for the 05+:nice:

    I have them on order right now - 18x9 deep dish anthracite bullitts with 255/45/18 tires. They must make your car look lower because I don't see suspension mods in your sig yet the rear end looks lower than stock.
