So far seems better than the S drives I had on it
Those tires should be fine for your mods and a daily driver. And I was just curious as to how the wheels with spacers on the rear look bc i was considering doing it on my t bird.

I did the exact same thing bro. Bought the hypercoated 10.5's on clearance from AM for 79 bucks each. I painted mine though. Sumitomo's on sale for 159 bucks each (AM), and combined with my MF discount code, total was $414 to my door.

As for the Sumi's, I personally like them. I'm not pushing major horsepower and they definitely hook up better than my stock 245 BFG's. They ride quiet, smooth, and people say you can get (up to) 40k miles out of them. For the cheapest 315's on the market, I'd say not too shabby.

OP, I told you that you would be impressed with the new look. Now to mount up old wheels and tires and get some video of you finishing off your old tires roasting them to the bone...lol

Your car has come a long way. Looks freaking sweet bro. Keep it up. Now for a Procharger?

Now you need some emblems up on your hood scoop. Something simple like 4.6L or V8. Better yet? Three things that will make that Stang a freaking knockout: 1- The 95 Cobra cowl hood with the 3 inch rise, 2- 03-04 Cobra rear spoiler, 3- 03-04 Cobra front bumper.

DO IT NOW!!!...lol

How did they powdercoat the wheel, but not the lip? Where did you have that done? Most places will say that it can't be done.

Looks great man!

**Edit** also, I don't see where AM even offers Hypercoated Bullitt's.....what am I missing?

Well in my case I was lucky... My cousin owns Progressive Powder Coating.. So the cost was free, unfortunately you are right most places won't touch a polished lip... But what we did was literally wipe the lip clean with your finger then a damp cloth, once the wheel was powder coated obviously not baked. As for the little specks I took some eagle one polish and it all came right off.
American Muscle had the rims on clearance.. Probably because they are not going to offer them anymore but I will look for you.

While on AM website, search "Wheels", pick the "Anthracite 10.5's". While viewing them, scroll down to where the "User Reviews" begin, to the left. In the section called, "You Might Also Like:". They are there. On clearance for 79.99 each. A freaking steal. Will post up the direct link for you.
