Default 2011 Mustang 3.7L V6 w/new Wheels

I posted pics of my V6 a few months back right after I purchased the car. Since then I bought a set of 18" Euromax 612's which came on 2007 -2008 Saleen Racecraft Mustangs along with a set of 275/40R18 Sumitumo HTR Z II tires. I also did some small modifications like, TMW Shifter Extender along with a Roush ****, a brushed stainless heal guard and a powder coated satin black license plate frame.

Don't plan on doing too many performance mods for a while aside from one more thing. The stock ride height along with the 1" shorter tire diameter (275/45R18's are the perfect size but are an uncommon size and therefore very expensive) make the wheel gap a little unsightly for my tastes. Going to have to put an Eibach Pro Kit on it sooner or later. Hoping to buy fellow member Chrisdr's pro kit as he's likely going with sportlines. Should work out well as he's a friend so I can probably get them for $20 or so (kidding ).

Weather was a little foggy out on the Southern California coast today, last four or five days prior to today have been extremely clear........ c'est la vie.

One more things, I took the photo's with my Droid and they're not great. Everytime I want to take photos of the car my digital cameras not with me.

paint the calipers black or something and it will look ****. Wheels look even better then I thought they would, but the calipers jump out at me.

The ride height/wheel/fender gap doesn't bug me at all, but it dropped and inch or so would look good.

VERY nice! makes me wanna pony up and get those 18's from my dad! Just don't have the $500 for them, plus I'd prolly get a tune first anyway I've yet to see one of our cars dropped down, it'd be **** for sure. Maybe a lil color on the calipers, but thats not even a must, it looks great!

Thanks Rob. Black calipers would probably look pretty good but the stock look isn't bothering me for now.

Thanks man. What wheels did your dad throw on his blown 5.0 instead of the stock 18's?

His street setup consists of the 19in wheels that come with the brembo package. Then he has his racestars for the track. . Again... the car looks great my friend!
