Terminator wheels would look good on your car.

I'm also a big fan of the '98 Cobra wheels. They're a little different than the typical '95 Cobra Rs that you see all over. They have a little curve to the spoke to give a more aggressive look to them.

Also not trying to be a jerk but the amount your spending on tires and rims could go a long way towards making your car faster or saving for a GT like you want.....

I have like 8k saved up and I have been looking for a GT for the past couple months but havn't been able to find one thats not in junky condition. I have decided to keep my v6 because its in great condition and everything works, and instead of dropping 8k for a new car, I'll spend 1k for my rims+tires, then a few thousand on performance and I'll be satisfied and have money left over too.

Keep an eye on the TCStangs.com classified section. You might be able to snag some wheels/tires cheap that are in good shape.

no apology needed, was just making an observation. Hunt around, paid $50 for my bullits, yes 5-0, 25+25, 25x2, 5x10. i misunderstood the guy and thought he meant 50 a rim myself. course the tires were all bad.

Anywho, I picked up my gt dirt cheap cause the previous owner thought the oil pan gasket was blown, and it had a few other hiccups. oil leak was just the sensor for the pressure gauge leaking.

Sucks that you don't live closer, I have a nice 02 GT for quite a bit less than the 8K that you have.

On topic, here is my Cobra with 03 Cobra wheels on it.

nice, and yeah I used to live in texas and although I'm a northerner at heart, I LOVED texas' mustang selection. I got my 2003 mustang v6 back in 2007 (which i had to sell later ) with 40k milage for only 7k!! I'm in Minnesota now and I'm lucky to find a GT without a rusted out body that still runs :S
