If you're going to do gold with a polished lip please just take the car back to the dealership before you ruin it.

I don't want another Gotti on these forums....please no.

jseven, I appreciate the constructive criticism and the suggestion as I have asked.

To the others, thanks for posting. lol

I used to be in the import world, and I personally think gold wheels on a white car look decent. If done right. For example:



Ugly style wheels, but you get the idea.

I say black on white. The prettiest car I have ever seen was on 360Forged's website and it was a white GT500 with black 360s and it was beautiful.

White looks tacky. And as you stated it fits in the import world but not on a muscle/american car. We go power lean and mean not flashy and gaudy.

I would never put white on white. Ugh!

I hear what you're saying 08mustang gt about the gold on white working in the import world, but not here. As I said, I was very much into the Import world a little while back and I'm still "brainwashed" I guess you could say. LOL

Cr4sh ov3rl0ad, those are beautiful. I want..... now.

+1!

And I understand what you're saying about the import brainwash. Back when I had my SVT Focus I only hung out with guys who had S2000s, 350Zs, MS3s, etc. and I realized there is a huge difference in style lol.

Their website.

Google is your best friend.

360 and iForged make some of the best forged wheels in the entire world. And they also offer the best service. I mean they will match the color of your car down to a point just to put it onto four wheels. Thats some ******* quality right there.

you are going to find this group does not like to step outside the box....most of the answers will be some sort of OEM wheel or rplica. whether its cobra, or bullit wheels that is what this group likes. originality is not encouraged....

buy the wheels you like, build your car to your personality......because in the end its your money.

360 forged wheels on an SN95 Mustang would be like sprinkling diamonds on a piece of ****.

That said, I'd go with some hypercoated, or anthracite wheels with a lip.

There's a reason for that, it's because 9 times out of 10, the 3rd-party aftermarket non-OEM influenced stuff just doesn't look any ******* good. Different, yeah, being different is cool. But if you're trying to be different, honestly, you bought the wrong car.

The body lines of this car work well with stuff that Ford came out with, most body kits, import-style wheels, and lights just do not look good or flow with these cars.

I would suggest not buying any kind of gold color rims for a mustang unless you want to be mad fun of for it instead of getting compliments on how your car looks I agree with what everybody is saying on here don't go with gold!

I got beat to death for 20's, and later realized my childish mistakes.. Im rolling on saleens now.. My favorite wheel, i just wish there wasnt such a price jump between 17 and 18 inch tires. So im selling my saleens and buying new 17x10.5 black fr500's or 03 cobras in the spring.

Well considering that they're custom built to your specs.......they can run anywhere from $1,000 per wheel to about $3,000 each.

Forged comes at a cost. Especially three-piece forged. That's like sparkling diamonds on top of some gold and then sprinkling some crack on top of that.

High quality **** right there.

some of the best looking wheels on the planet are made by third party...non OEM manufacturers. maybe they are out of your price range.....but we all have different budgets and tastes.

what does the model of car have to do with being different....whether it is a honda civic or a mustang, they are identical to many thousands of other cars sold......

my car is different because i mod it how i want. if you are afraid to be yourself, and would rather blend in, and be accepted by the crowd that is cool, however we are not all as insecure as you..that is your hang up


i love how you equate being different to "body dy kits and import style wheels".....again that is your hangup.....rousch, saleen make some pretty nice "kits".


PS: if you let the opinion of friends, or even random people on the street effect the way in which you want to mod your car. you need to check yourself, because you ain't being real...your just trying to fit in.
