    Default Post up pics of your wheels....

    Hey Folks,

    It's time for some new wheels. But I am pulling my hair out trying to decide what wheels I like/look good. Since the car already has a 5-lug conversion, I am thinking about the following:

    - 96 to 98 GT OEM snowflakes (5 spoke "split")
    - 98 OEM Cobras or FRPP Cobra R's
    - OEM Bullitts

    I am also not sure what wheel color/finish I prefer (satin/silver, chrome, powdercoated grey/black, etc). Pic of the car is below, Current plans are to strip her bare and repaint the original Scarlot Red (paint code 2D) or go with a clearcoated medium-dark red.

    Anyways, post up your pics before I go bald!! Thanks!

    I would stay away from the basic Mustang look. Mustangs don't even look good with them lol

    As far as 5 lug wheels go...in the last few years I've found myself partial to '99 Cobra wheels and '03-04 Cobra wheels, I guess because they're a fairly simple design, cheap, and not everyone runs them (unlike cobra R's). Would like to run one of those two someday if I ever get my car converted to 5-lug.

    Yeah but how much are those ones vs. the 5 lug ones?

    As far as four lug wheels go, I've noticed how cheap you can get '93 Cobra wheels for with a polished lip and center cap and black "spokes." Those would look pretty sweet.

    I'm also partial to gunmetal/anthracite cobra r's also but I dunno why These things are sexy-http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/17-Gu...QQcmdZViewItem
