I want to put some bullet style wheels on my V6 Mustang and match up some white letter tires on it. The problem is I can't find any tire manufacture that make 235/55-17 tires with white letters or a size that would look good on a 05 Mustang.

Can any of you guys/gals help me out here? I know you can get them for the V6 Style wheels but I want some bullet on my Mustang with some white lettered tires.

It would look Boss!

Wish I had an answer for you, as I'm looking for the same thing in 18". If I have any luck, I'll let you know.

I've done the search a couple of weeks ago and came across some RWL tires in similar sizes, but they were all S-rated for speed (max. 112 mph/180 kmph). Not good, for the Mustang you'll need a V, W, Y or ZR speed rating! I'm still looking around myself too...

P.S.: here's a Goodyear Eagle GTII tire which is close enough in size, but for slow speed :notnice: http://www.newstalgiawheel.com/produ...ls.asp?id=2829

don't try and paint the letters with a grease pen or trimbrite tirewhite markers. iit doesn't set and will fly outward toward the edge of the tire all over the sidewall (none made it to the body). This was my failed attempt at fake RWL. :P

there has to be something out there.....i havent seen it with my own eyes but i think rwl tires would look really good on the new stang maybe to an extent even better than most of the tires people are putting on them now (no offense just giving opinion). The cars classic design i think would match up perfect with rwl. Ive been looking too for mine.
