Default Pics of new wheel/tire combo

Thanks for the advice on the speedo recalibration! I've attached a couple of pics here, first time doing this, so I hope they show up!

Looks good! Now, time to lower it. ;-)
Do you know what offset the wheels are?
I have spacers on mine, which make the wheels go flush with the wheel wells.
When I purchased my car used, the wheels and spacers were already on the car.
I would prefer 18's due to the rough ride and added weight. O-well!

your car looks really sharp Kevin!

I don't know the back spacing, but they are stock 19" wheels off a buddy's 2013 V6 Mustang with the Performance Package. I agree, the car would look better being about 1-1/2" lower. Just money, right? Seems just about every new Mustang I've seen from the V6 cars to the Shelbys - all have that big gap at the top of the tires. In time, I'm sure I'll lower it. Thanks for the advice!

No problem and thank you for the props!

Yeah, all new mustangs stock springs are pretty tall, thus the large gap.

I am happy with the Eibach Pro-kit, which lowers about 1.5 inches.

Happy modding!
