New wheels
 
Got new wheels last week. I think the exterior is done until I find a good deal on '13 tails...buying the CS was really taking a shortcut, since it had the fascias and spoiler that I would have added to a regular GT anyway.

18x9.5 square TSW's in bronze with 275/40/18 Nittos.

Love those wheels. Do they really have a bronzy kind of hue to them, or are they Gunmetal and it's just the sunlight giving them the brownish/yellow tint?

Edit: nevermind... just reread your description and see that they are bronze.

Nice looking wheels. Do you know what they weigh?

Disappointingly enough, with the heavy Nittos they were only a couple pounds lighter than stock. I'm blaming it on the Nittos though, which I have heard are heavy in themselves compared to others. I know the forged TSW's are supposed to be something like 25 lbs. IIRC each of these mounted up was something like 56 lbs on my POS bathroom scale. Stockers were like 60.

Great minds think alike!

looks great man

mariusvt 08-07-2013 05:38 PM

The 18x9.5's are a hair over 21lbs. Also they look great, and confirm that I'm definitely going with the matte bronze when I order them in a couple of months.

MarkMan 08-07-2013 06:18 PM

They look really good on your car!

kzonts 08-07-2013 06:57 PM

Nice choice. Looks really good.

Those TSWs look great on your black Mustang.

I really wouldn't worry about the wheel/tire weight unless you're trying to improve track lap times.
