Post Your Aftermarket Wheels!
 
Hey Mustang Guys & Gals!

Post up one or two pictures of your ride on your aftermarket wheels so people can get an idea of what their cars will look like, and maybe take the plunge themselves!

I'll start:
18x9" Chrome Bullitts w/ 245/40/18 and 275/35/18 Stagger.

18x9, 255/45's all around.

The wheels are 18x9 Speedy Envy wheels I purchased from Wheels Next

Speedy Envy at Wheels Next

According to Wheels Next (when I called and talked to someone), the wheels should have fit but I ran into a problem with the spokes of the wheel hitting slightly on the front caliper. They have a fitment guarantee but I like the wheels and I figured a thin wheel spacer would do the trick. I was also told I could probably grind the caliper down, that didn't sound very appealing.

I contacted Fred Goeske at www.wheeladapter.com, he's a really nice guy, said he's done stuff for Carrol Shelby. I got him to make some 5 mm hub centric wheel spacers. It cost me $100 for 2 and they worked perfectly. The spacers didn't cause the wheels to stick out and the car rides and drives straight and vibration free.

I also used 1/8" spacers on the rear just for looks, I bought those from stangsuspension.com

I also learned something else about aftermarket wheels in general. The manufacturers make the center bore of their wheels large enough to fit most cars. This causes most wheels to become lug centric instead of hub centric. Check this site for more info.

20" ForgeTec's on my 07'. I know many don't like the 20's but I like the look. I am running the 17" Bullets now that it is winter here in Nebraska.

can any one explain the demensions of wheels, like 18 x9... i understand the first number but what does the second number represent?

RE: Post Your Aftermarket Wheels!
 
The "9" in 18x9 is the width of the wheel. Obviously the wider the wheel, the wider the tire you can put on it.
