Goodridge has a new line of SS that have an outer coating to avoid dirt getting in between the SS and Teflon. It's there Phantom line. Tire rack has them. Pricier than the regular Goodridge SS but IMO safety has no price point.

Here they are

For road use you might want to get 45 mm offset as with the 35 mm offset the axle needs to be almost perfectly centered for the tires not to protrude slightly outside of the wheel well.
Thank you for the information on Enkei. I have done a lot of research with different brands of rims, mostly rims that are chrome plated that will be used for road use. These rims have a good structural warranty, but only have a 1 year warranty on the chrome plating. I found this to be an unacceptable warranty. That is when I came across Enkei, and found that I like the look, the materials they use, and their warranty. ENKEI wheels will be free from defects in materials and workmanship under normal and reasonable use. I have not called Discount Tire Co. to find out prices yet, but I am assuming they are going to be pricy.

Thanks for the information and the link. I will look into the Goodridge SS lines. I definitely agree that safety comes before price.

I sell Goodridge, I sell Enkei.

You don't need to waste money on the "phantom" lines, the standard ones are sheathed. As for the Enkei's. I run them, and have a number of customers running PF-01's in both 9.5 and 10.5 widths (the latter sticks out a little and 9.5 are recommended for street cars). They are strong, light, and not super expensive. http://www.stranoparts.com/searchbym...222&ModelID=35

You mentioned you sell Enkei rims. Could you tell me if the Racing Series RP05 19x9.5 Special Brilliant Coating will fit a 2012 Mustang GT with or without a Brembo kit. Right now I don't have the Brembo kit, but would like to know in case in the future I decide to add the Brembo's. Right now I have the Ford Mustang 19 inch rim.
Thank you,
Don

Well, what size? The way the spokes are on those, you might have an issue. I really can't say for sure, because with Brembo's it's about more than just offset, but also the spoke design.

The size would be 19x9.5 on all four rims. I am having a difficult time trying to find quality rims that will allow for a Brembo Kit. If I can't find any, then I will only upgrade the brake pads and possibly the rotors if they will fit. I also found on Enkei's web site that the RP05 rims are on closeout.

Most of us run 18" wheels, not 19's. You'd need to get a drawing from Enkei showing a cutaway view of the wheel and it's measurements vs. the hub face and compare that to a stock wheel. I suspect the RP05 would work, but I can't guarantee it.
