I'm getting new rims because I am not a fan of these...Getting Cobra replicas, but can't decide between chrome or black with machined edge. What would you guys choose with a red car. Also what is the size in the back for staggered. I want that reveal that looks so good. Put your two cents in. Especially about the chrome if you have them

Nice, I'm a chrome guy. I am afraid I would get sick of chrome, and I don't want any pitting. I want that cool look that some have where the back is wider, and it shows a deep dish machined circle in the back. Do I have to get a ten inch rim for that?? That's really wide.

All of these are 10inch wheels over the years on my car where the lips vary, they fit fine . Given you car sits pretty high in my opinion . All you need is the quad shock removed . 275/40/17 tire and you’ll have no issue.

My chrome 17x10 Cobra reps. on 255/40 squared setup but I want to stagger the rear just a little bit to reduce the terrible tramlining on this car.
Edit: forgot to say no quad shocks here, either.

Just the guys I was hoping to hear from. The thing I am shooting for is that two inch machined look in the rear. I got some extra money, and need new tires so why not get new rims. I am really having a hard time making up my mind with the chrome. Red Foxes look good with chrome, and why not replicate the Egokilla.

I went to the bank today after going to gas up the Mustang. All the handles were covered as in no gas. I told the teller that 7-11 had no gas. She said when she got to work this morning that there were broken down cars all around the bank. Several cars had broken down with bad gas. They must have been pumping pure water to have them not even make it out of the parking lot. How will they handle that in this day, and age.

I just was fooling with my car today, and I noticed my air conditioning compressor does not cycle off. Should it cycle off, and if it is supposed to go off what's my possible problem.

Without knowing your pressures, ambient conditions, where the clutch cycling switch is set at, it’s hard to answer that question.

I just bought a 99 Jeep TJ. Can't do pictures right now, but I am stripping the hood down. Going to get a cheap paint job. I have to dismantle it, and prep for paint. U Tube videos are helpful, and I have a question on primer. Is there a better brand that will give me the best results in a spray can.
