Check out my new shoes :)
 
After a jaunt from Denver to Vegas hauling some butt in the pickup, got some wheels. Then today, after having to call around, got new tires. So here's our '07 GT with '11 GT/CS 19" wheels. Ride is nice, liking the Hankook's...and boy with the ford racing suspension it's a great smooth ride and the supercharger makes it go fast too :) Anyway, check out my new shoes!

Same.

I'm considering options to trade mine out just because, but they really are one of the best stock wheels they've put on these things.

Looks good, like it!

AGREE!

Damn, I want a set of the new CS wheels!

Good choice! they look good.

Rudolph Hucker 07-17-2013 10:33 AM

very nice dude

Yes, probably the best mustang wheels Ford has made, besides early 2000's cobra (only 17" i think), and the 07-09 GT500 (looks like race car wheels)

I didn't realize they're 19", that helps. The way it looks machined on the flat edges is very eye catching. I'd love to have some but I need 10" wide rear minimum. V8 + blower = needs more than 8.5 inch

Hankooks I would not have gone with though.....

No way.
Much better tires out there for the price

Looks really nice!

Hankooks are fine, I've got nearly 25000 miles on mine and I would call myself a very aggressive driver. They've lasted longer and handle equal to more expensive name brands I've owned.

Those wheels look right at home, very nice.

I literally thought you meant Mustang shoes like I have lol

wcgman 07-19-2013 04:40 PM

Wally - Where in the heck did you get those?!?! I want a pair NOW!

As for choosing the Hankooks, that was about the only set I could find in Denver on almost no notice, so it is what is it is. I could have put all seasons on the car, but...

As for the comment about V8 and blower and needing a wider wheel, this car has full Ford Racing suspension and the Ford Racing Supercharger. My wife drives it more than I do by far which is fine. It blocks the Shelby in the garage, so yeah, please drive it honey! I have not tried to run it with the tcs off, but it wont break traction with the hankooks, larger wheel and tcs active. Which seriously, since the wife is driving it, Im fine. It is also an automatic with stock rear end.

This of course is going to lead into another post shortly about something like an AM Bama tune on this car and folks thoughts. She is already wanting faster. Im a little nervous because it's a 'vert and not a coupe. Last thing I need is for her to get hurt.

Those rims look really freaken good on the car. Must better than the OEM ones that it came with.
