Looks good! A drop would improve the look nicely.

Yep do your homework! Since you need to really consider what look you're going for and how stiff you want the ride to be considering your local road conditions and steepness of your driveway. Since you've already got new shoes, your offset is ate in stone for the foreseeable future so your drop needs to take this into consideration!

Removed my "5.0 LITER" hood spears today to replace them with the thicker matte black spears from AM. I never liked the lettering, previous owner installed. Now that I've removed them I'm digging the much cleaner look.
What do you think?

Old thread but OP how are you liking the V4's? I am looking at getting a set of tires and these are on my list.

So far I like them. They're at least as quiet as the stock Pirelli's & seem to grip pretty well even in heavy rain. I don't push the car very hard and since it's my DD comfort and all-season traction were most important to me.

Too early to comment on wear yet.

I found the best pricing to be at Discount Tire.

I know its hard cause they're black, but any chance we could see a photo or two in brighter light?

They look good, the photo is a little dark, maybe its my screen....Even the one in sunlight.

Plasty dip those 5.0 emblems black, so they stand out.

I think it looks great without the hood spears. After you get it dropped, it will be a very sharp looking car.

Thanks. I ended up leaving the hood spears off but of course I question that decision every time I see a sharp Mustang with 'em. LOL, the grass is always greener.

I added the AM pre-painted GT500 rear spoiler (excellent match) and CDC Classic chin spoiler. I still haven't pulled the trigger on a drop. The area near my office is absolutely terrible; potholes, washed out gravel, you name it. It's an industrial area. I'm thinking that I would regret it.

Here are a few pics in better light.

The rims looks great. For some added touches I would do caliper covers or paint them red or black perhaps even slotted disks.

Alright! Thanks for posting the updates, you can really see it now. They look great, no question. Digging the spoiler too.

I am also worried about lowering mine for the same reason...the roads here are just terrible. Is there a sort of golden rule when lowering? An inch and a half doesn't sound like much but already there are lots of places you can scrape even stock if they sneak up on you.
