Default I needs some help with wheels choices.

Going to drop some coin on wheels pretty soon. I have 3 sets of wheels in mind, The Brembo Track Pack wheels, Black/Machined Bullitts from AM, or Black/Machined Bullitts from Ford Racing. I guess I have questions about all 3.

Track Pack Wheels:
For reference: Track Pack Link[URL="http://fordracingparts123.com/chassis-parts/wheels/black-track-pack-19x9-wheel-set-with-tpms-kit-m-1007kit-dc199b/?gclid=CILo96CW1LoCFUVp7AodkmsA6A"]

Pros
  • 19 inch
  • Ford OEM Product
  • Looks Badass on the Rouse RS (Titanium Gray, though...)
Cons
  • Pricey
  • Larger Tires (Pricey...)
  • The car is a V6 w/ stock 2.71 gears

American Muscle Gloss Black/Machined Bullitt wheels
For Reference: Linkhttp://www.americanmuscle.com/black-...18x8-0512.html

Pros
  • Best Price of the 3
  • A lot of raving reviews
  • Almost look oem, except for the wider machined lip
Cons
  • Made in China
  • Not OEM tested
  • How is the qulity of the paint
  • It is the narrower wheel of the 3
  • 30mm offset, is this too much??

Ford Racing Black Machined Bullitt wheel
For Reference: Linkhttp://www.summitracing.com/parts/fms-m1007s1885b
  • OEM
  • Wider than the AM wheel
Cons
  • 50mm Offset, I believe my current wheels have a 45mm offset so they would sit even further into the wheel well.

What do you guys think? I'm really leaning towards the Bullitts and keeping it 18". I would prefer the OEM wheels but not at the expense of a very high +offset. I want the tires to be atleast flush with the fender

Keep in mind this is a 2014 V6 with premium wheels.

Thanks!

The Track pack wheels are the ones I keep going back to, and they are 42 MM offset not 30mm

And these are the other ones in the Mix for me
http://www.cjponyparts.com/ford-raci...014/p/199LG-V/
Out of the 3 you mentioned though I would go with the Track pack wheels but I am not a big Bullitt fan.
BTW My wheels are 8.5 inch by 50 MM offset so although they are 19's they will set out the same

Mike,

Choosing wheels is never easy! You definitely narrowed it down to three great options though, I don't think you can go wrong with any of the above wheels. My 2011 GT has the factory Brembo track pack wheels and it's been tough for me to even think about replacing them!

The bullitt wheels are definitely one of my personal favorite wheels. They give your Mustang a classic look and they're simple and clean! I definitely agree with all of your PRO's and can ensure you that what you have listed as a CON isn't going to be a problem for you.

We take serious pride in building wheels. When building a wheel, we go the extra mile to ensure that our customers are getting a high quality wheel that won't have any issues and are built to last! Every wheel is Structural tested, Finish tested, Road tested etc.. before we even think about producing them. On top of that, we offer a lifetime structural warranty and a 1-year finish warranty. So if for some reason you do have an issue we'll make sure you're taken care of quickly!

I hope this helps. Feel free to shoot me a PM if you have any questions or need some assistance from me. You can also reach out to my CS team if you'd like, they can be reached at the contact information in my signature!

-Dan

Get some 20" wheels. 18" look way to small on these cars. Tires are also pretty reasonable as well.

The 30mm offset was meant to go with the AM wheels. Thanks, it's been edited.

I saw the boss wheels earlier. You can't beat those. $999 with TPMS!

Any body know if the 11/12 GT wheels will fit without issue?http://www.hubcaphaven.com/mm5/merch...egory_Code=383

But 20's look too big in the eyes of others. In my opinion 19's are the perfect size for the s197 but that can get pricey depending on the wheel/tire choice.

Fit just fine, I know of a couple people running them as their winter set up.
