G,S I WISH I COULD HELP. BUT IM GOING THRU THE SAME THING, IVE LOOKED AT EVERY PIC I CAN FIND, AND STILL CANT DECIDE. THANK GOD IM STILL A YR OR SO BEFORE I HAVE TO MAKE THE CHOICE, BUT EVERYTHING I SEEM TO LIKE STILL HAS A BASIC DESIGN THAT RESEMBLES THE MAGNUM 500S. DEFINITLEY THINK IT WILL BE A SPOKE TYPE WHEEL. CRAGERS SS IS STILL ONE H--- OF A WHEEL. IF YA FIND A GOOD ONE LET US KNOW, MAYBE YOU CAN PICK OUT MINE

I got these from Summit racing they are 15x8 magnum 500 replicas. they are heavy wheels. Some surface rust is starting to form on the outer lips after 2 years from moisture and cats pissing on them.

I should have been waxing or polishing them but I was too lazy.

I like aluminum because you can usually polish them back, once steel rusts then there's not much you can do.

The wheels on my car actually come from an 1979 AMX . they are 14 inch wheels, but I love how they look on the car. the first photo is not from my car but to show what they look like.

i'm going with the magnum 500's in a modern day size of 18x9 front and 18x10 (most likely). i have been thinking of getting torque thrust look-a-likes for 94-04 mustangs in 17x8 front and 17x10.5's rear. these tires however will be a tad cheaper. but in these, i can't decided i want them in chrome, gun metal color, or polished lip with black.

Hi guys!... my car has a 14 x 8" URUGUAYAN made ford wheels... It´s incredible there are actually something made in here to work in the automotive world... anyway...

 

This kind of wheels were in the 70´ the upgrade to factory steel wheels... actually, the US Embassy (first owners of my car) put this set of wheels on the car... The original steel wheels past as new to the past owner of the car, with the factory tires too... Tires were long gone and the wheels were stolen from the car a decade ago, so here we are... riding on a Ford Uruguayan wheels...

 

Personally, if i had to choose, i´ll go for the 15 x 8 Magnum 500 like Jorge shows in his vert. It´s a soft combination of classic but yet agresive sport look that in my opinion goes pérfect in our body styled cars!

 

Enjoy!! :)

I really like the Magnum 500's and figured that is what I would be buying for this car. Until I bought the car and it came with these units. Now if I could only find two more that are a bitter widder for the back. Anyone know where I could do that. Look closely - they are not your normal ten spoke Shelby.

im running greg weld dragstars currently. they are discontinued but a company called racestar bought the design and is currently making them. i run 15x3.5s up front and 15x10s out back, but they make all sizes. they are aluminum and clean up easily.

 

before that i ran cragars s/s all around. they looked good too, but like others have mentioned, after they rust and pit, they're isn't all too much that can be done.

 

I also ran ansen sprints (slotted mags) at one time. I dont think I have a good picture of them on the car as a set of four though.

 

heres a few pics, shiny black paint is with the dragstars, black with orange stripes is when it had cragars, and the flat black and flooded pics are with ansens

those are centerlines, a few companies make knock-off of them as well. def give the car a nice racecar from the past type of look.

I have said it before in another post. For me personally I wouldn't want 5 spoke wheels because 95% of mustangs out there have them and I want my car to be a little different. And my car is not a mach or boss it is just a normal fastback. So I am not looking to keeping it stock looking. The 5 spoke wheels look great but I want something a little different and was really happy that it had turbocast II wheels from an AMX. Only thing that would make them better for me was if they where 15" instead of 14's. But then again it's different.

I really like the looks of your AMX rims on the car. It was the first thing that got my attention. Looks classic and classy!

I used to have Centerlines on mine. I love those on Mopars, and had to have them but somehow I didn't dig the look on my Mustang.

If you scroll down on my submission to the Car of the Month feature, you'll find a pic of the car before it was restored with the Centerlines on.
