Ive been shooping the accessory sites and just am not impressed with any of the wheels i am seeing. alot of them look cool but are way too expensive.

however i like the price of 17" tires and was wondering how much you think a set of 4 stock wheels from someone who upgraded would cost so i can run 2 different types of tires without pulling em on and off.

Stock 17" take-offs run about $100 a piece for the 05+ GT's.

hmm and aftermarket 18s start about 200. plus another 50$ per tire = 150x4 = 600$ over a set of 17s is there a major performance difference?

btw 600$ is alot of ramen noodles

i don't believe so....i'd say just step up to 18s and pick the tires you like on a nice looking aftermarket wheel. Check out AmericanMuscle.com they have some decent mustang wheels and packages too.

most wide alloys will do that... the stockers are thinner and have more support to the edges... I had those guys fix a wheel for me before... they said that 85% of cars w/alloys have a bent rim and don't even know it
