Aftermarket Wheels Thread?

Recommended Posts

I could not find an extensive aftermarket wheels thread. So perhaps we can start one. I am looking to buy fastback in the next week or so then will lover on some nice muscular wheels and meaty tires to fill fenders.

 

Any pics/suggestions?

There have been a lot of threads about wheel and tire sizes, just type wheels in the search box at the upper right and you'll find a lot of information. Here a couple of examples:

Me, too.

 

Have a couple of 71 sportsroof projects in works, thinking about wheel options.

 

17s feel good for brake clearance but not oversize wagon wheel look (yes, makes me not a fan of the heavy 19-20s so popular right now).

 

And classic mag 500 look is always good, but I really like polished hub caps and trim rings that were on some 15 inch Boss cars.

 

Ideal world I'd go with 17 inch steel and trim rings and hub caps but I've never heard of that being possible.

 

What else is out there?

 

Love to see more pics of people's cars for stance, tire / wheel look, etc.

Gorgeous!  And why not just have a thread dedicated to showing off the awesome aftermarket wheels we've all chosen.

 

Here's mine, sporting Cragar S/Ss and Cooper Cobra GT Radials in 245/60R15s on 15x8s up front, 295/50R15s on 15x10s out back.

I really like those wheels!

 

Thanks, they were the closest I could find to a modern Magnum 500 at a reasonable price. Ryan

Nice wheels. Reminds of the factory wheels on my 2004 Mach 1. They are 17 inch:

Haven't seen this one before. Looks good on a '71-'73. Both retro and modern.

 

Any more pics? What backspacing did you go with front and rear?

Someone needs to buy some of these and put them on to review them.

18X9 and 18X10 with 245/40 and 285/40 respectively. The wheels are replicas of the 10th anniversary SVT wheels.

I stumbled on a pic of grey met. Boss 338 wheels on an actual '71 Mustang, really nice. Good mix of old school and modern. Love a deep dish look too!

Looks sharp! ::thumb::

 

I was planning on Torque Thrust IIs when I first started my project, but then I noticed every hot rod in San Angelo seemed to have them, and I only saw one or two cars with Cragars... so I went with those instead.
