Got my new wheels yesterday. They are American Racing Redline Shelby (silver) 18x9 & 18x10 with 255/45 & 284/40-18 Nitto 555's. I also have lower (non adj.) and upper (adjustable) rear control arm(s), drop brackets and Ford Racing springs (1 1/2" drop) at the house. The adjustable Panhard bar, the panhard rod, the A-arm bracket and the camber bolts are scheduled for delivery next Tuesday.:D

Those are a nice alternative to Bulletts. I like the way the stick out a little more in the wheelwells, but will that cause problems for you if you lower your car?

I did not want the bullets, too many people have them, same thing with chrome.
About the gap, I dont think so, the gap is pretty big (I did not measure it yet, but it looks like ~2"). The fender lip on the 05 is rolled from the factory (thank you Ford) and the weels will fit right in.

05bluestang you misunderstood me. I didn't mean you should have gone with Bulletts, I meant that your wheels are very nice and a different look. There are alot of Bulletts out there (including my car) and although I like them, you have a wheel thats not on alot of Mustangs and it's good to see something different.
