Based on your other thread I am going to assume these are 15's if that's the case then in all honesty I think a set of stock wheels would look better. I know your on a tight budget but check these out http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/17-Bl...Q5fAccessories Brand new wheels and tires in a similarish LOL style for just over $830 shipped with mounting and balancing. And if you do decide to keep your stock tires and just get rims don't forget to factor in the price to have the tires swapped over to the new rims. I'm guessing that will cost pretty close to $100 in addition to the price of the rims alone.

Either one of the rims in your links wont look good in 15 inch.

Look for a used set of stock 17's at least. I scored a set of stock 17inch bullits with tires for $250. Deals are out there, dont settle on 15inch wheels.

The wheels you have right now are those ugly aluminum 15" ones aren't they? That's what I was forced to use for almost two years. You won't be happy unless you get 17" or bigger... and try sticking to factory style wheels. In most cases the 'custom' wheels just don't look good, however there are exception.

Cut grass this summer... that will get you enough cash for staggered bullitts. That's how I got mine.

Nice LOL. We just don't want to see you make a decision you'd regret and aftermarket 15's would be a mistake.

So what 17's are you getting?

I don't like either of the wheels you posted. How much are you willing to spend on the wheels and tires?

Willing to spend about $1000 for wheels and tires that are already mounted and balanced.

The 10th anniversary Cobra rims are 1k, not my favorite but i have seen a black set on a black car that looked good

These are the ones I got... would look sweet on a black car! Granted they were on sale when I got them so i paid just under 1k

I am not overly impressed with the sumi's on there... they get good dry traction but when the roads are wet they get maybe as good as the 275 Riken raptors i had on before with my old rims

No problem. Post up a few pics when you get them. Those wheels are kinda nice because not everyone has them.

I agree with Shadow Stang, 17" Bullitts or FR500's.

When I was saving up cash for my wheels, I was planning on the 03 Cobras. Got all the way up to 900 bucks, then changed my mind and decided to get the staggered black bullitts. It works well for my car's red and black theme... but if I ever get another mustang, the first thing I'm buying is 03 Cobra wheels.

I just hate wheels with chrome/polished lips. Thats why I could never buy black bullitts or FR500s. I'd have to buy them and then get them powdercoated all black.

I like the polished lip look, just something I think is cool... but I can see how others might not like it. Looks kinda cool when going fast too, since all you can see is the lip.

My thing with wheels, is they have to be staggered. I love mustangs with wide rear tires. Theres a GT in my neighborhood with 245's... and even tho it could blow my doors off, mine looks a bit meaner with the staggered setup. To me anyway.

I like the polished lip personally.

I don't like them all black unless it's a satin/semigloss like the new "Stealth" FR's from cruizin concepts or black chrome (which flake easily from what I've heard)

I guess I should've put in there that I also HATE glossy black wheels.

Because it always makes the tires look dried out, and the wheels look glossier than the tires.

I've yet to decide on what wheels the Termi is getting. Trying to decide between satin black 18" FR500s, 18" 03-04 Cobras, or 18" Enkei RPF1s. I'll probably end up with the RPF1s since they're super lightweight, and the FR500s as a daily wheel.

I always have tire wet on so the gloss doesnt make my tires look that faded, besides i like the way the glossy black glimmers when you are in motion. I never really to used to the all black rims either... just not my style. I like how it hits an intermediate between stealthy and showy

I have gotten a ton of compliments on my new staggered set up, although I hate when i have to admit my car really isn't all that fast when I get asked what it can do.

Default advice

I'm looking for advice on what to do with my 2010 Mustang, other than garage it for the winter, for driving in the New England snow. Way back, we used to use snow tires on the rear for rear wheel drive cars...now the suggestion is to get 4 snows....I have all weather now, snow and mud....so, do I need snows? Most of my driving is highway.
