Default wheel and tire suggestions


I have lowered her yet, the picture is a bit old and my tires are nearly bald.

The wheels were put on by the previous owner and I've never really had much affection for them. Can people make suggestions for silver mustang rims? I like black with chrome rims but can seem to find a lot of pictures on silver cars.

Does anyone have any experience with staggered wheels? And are any of the online sites good with road hazard coverage?

Both wheels and tires are so driver-specific items, asking for help is like asking someone to dress you. Tire choices are subject to your driving intentions, environment, local road conditions, etc. As far as wheels, I recall that tirerack website used to let you place wheels on the color of choice stang to get an idea of the contrast. Wheel size will also dictate the # of tire choices As well as ride quality.

I know I am a little late on this thread, but tirerack has a simulator for this.
