Do you know if you have a certain price-range that you are trying to keep it within?

There are alot of options to look at. Tires for 19" wheels are harder to find in certain wheels and are a little more expensive than the 18" I like the 2012 GT500 PP wheels, but they aren't cheap. You can find them on some forums for sale though if you keep your eyes peeled. SVTperformance . com has a market section just for GT500 wheels and other parts. Good luck with your purchase!

Considering the stock wheels for that weigh 32lbs or something lead weight like, I'd go with a 21lb set from Enkie and decrease your rotational mass by over ten pounds per wheel. Erik

price range I'm looking around 2gs. i want to know thought is how good would it look to have a 18x9.5 in the front and 19x10 maybe 19x10.5 rear depends on how wide they go for. also what would be the handling like. thanks

p.s how does a TPMS works?
