Default New wheels!

This first post has only one picture of only one wheel. I bought four wheels with tires. 16,000 miles, rotated every 5,000 miles, and owned by a car detailer. They were always kept clean! What'* also awesome is that they came with Pirelli PZero Nero tires that are rated for 65K miles.

So, I've upgraded to 17" wheels! Now I just need to keep these clean, but it'll be much easier to do with how smooth and glossy they are. I have much better handling now, and the wider tires help me get some good grip on launches. I'm extremely satisfied. More pictures soon.

They're 235/55/17 tires, slightly bigger than stock, but I'd really like to go for 245/50/17 tires to match the stock size. The 235 width looks just right with the width of the car, though.

Yes, they are Mustang wheels!

For this whole set with the Pirelli tires and the like-new wheels, I paid $450. It'* relatively steep, but it make sense to me since new tires, mounted and balanced, cost $500 for my stock wheels. I think this was a crazy-awesome deal.
