Nice Looking GT CS

One of the nicest looking Stangs I have seen. Really like how you lowered it.

Regards,
Jim

Never too late to unleash your own Mustang. I kept my all- season OEMs so I can use them when I store her for winter. They'll go on from Oct. until mid May.
I think the 2013 CS switched to summer tires after April 2013.
Vossen CV5 are nice too

Wow that's a long list. Tell me how you like the short throw shifter. There is also a Roush rear bumper splitter in case you might not know.
Are you the mods yourself?

Now that's what I call unleashing your own.

Don't forget to post pics.

I'm also having hood stripes put on. I have Xpel paint protection film as well. I am having my local speed shop do the mods. Getting ready for the Vintage Grand Prix here in pittsburgh. The Mustang is the marquee car this year!

Cool. I get the mods done at my speed shop too. They were installing a massive Wilwood brake kit on an Escalade today and they found that they got the wrong hat for one of the discs and they had them for two weeks already. I told them to check my order before they give me an appointment.

If I can get time off maybe I'll go to the Vintage Grand Prix.

I know I have been waiting patiently for over 3-weeks now for all my parts to come in.

Rick, Which one are you getting?

My CV1 spec- Front 20x9 38 offset and 20 x 10.5 42 offset. 42 offset makes the tires stick out a bit. 45 offset is suggested by Vossen.

I like the CV1 also. They are my favorite. Vossen recommended for me to use 32 offset in front / 45 out back. They put me in contact with Rick at wheelsperformance.com if I want to order. He suggested 255 front tires and 285 rears.
