I like that tread pattern, too. Either a sedan, or a Minivan.
Good calculation Tom! Looks close enough to what Leo's reporting.

Minivan? Thanks alot.

Amen to that! We'll hook you up and have you rolling in less than 2 hours.

I'm curious how it'll sound with the Flowmasters as I have no doubt it'll be menacing!

All 2005+ rims from Mustang Tuning are here:

http://www.americanmuscle.com/2005wheels.html

Make sure you understand everything about offset before ordering. 38mm is perfect for the 2005+ Mustangs. Also know what tires you want. 18x9 is perfect for 255mm wide tires.

I think Deep Dish rims look strange. These are the same rims only they are Deep Dish on the left:

Not a big fan got the gt500 wheels. I know I know they have the retro look from back in the day but still.

Bill- I hope this isn't Chris's instructor.

the ones in Leo's post look different from the ones on mustangtuning. I see the difference from the GT500.

I think I like these http://www.americanmuscle.com/18x95-...-machined.html and they are a little less expensive.

The one's I posted are from mustang tuning. Look under hypercoated rims to find them.

Those look good. First time seeing them.

Opinions pls. I've been thinking about these for a while as I believe they'd be a nice saftey feature.



Well now that I brought up lights I've always wondered why Darly got the DRL's. I wasn't around when he got them so I'm curious.

Ah ha. Now then why did you get them? Just curious as I figure you could just turn on your lights if you want them on. Is it for some insurance discount??? Also aren't DRL's supposed to turn your parking lights on??

Only on Chevys. You can have the DRL module turn your horn on if you want. Plus, the driving lights being on when driving looks a hellavuh lot cooler than the stupid front parking lights.

Ah ha. Now then why did you get them? Just curious as I figure you could just turn on your lights if you want them on. Is it for some insurance discount???

No insurance discount (for me, anyway). Here's why: When you are driving during the day and turn on your lights, the radio and instrument cluster dim. They get very hard to see (especially with the top down, in my case). This way, the driving lights turn on automatically at about 80% power without affecting the radio or instrument cluster. When you turn on your parking lights and/or your headlights, the module turns off the driving lights and they operate normally with the light switch at 100% power. As far as safety goes, people never pull out in front of me anymore. They see lights coming and think twice before pulling out.

Actually, I'm not sure if Daryl (or as you say, Darly) did it because I did it, or not. I know he did it right after I did, but he may have had the idea already.

Next, I'm going to re-wire the driving lights so they stay on when you flash (or turn on) your high-beams... Any body else interested in knowing how to do this? I haven't figured it out, yet, but I'll look through the wiring diagrams.

Ok I was wondering who Darly was. Now I get it.

and, now I want DRLs. Especially since it could be an abbreviation for DaRLy or DaRyL. haha

No really, I think the DRLs are cool, especially the way Tom described the functionality above. Maybe that warrants a bookmark?

I had so many bookmarks until we lost our original Ponies on the Run! When you come to FL, I'll help you install them.

You just changed your avatar...

and you changed it again...

I agree, we lost a bunch of helpful threads during the crash of 2006.
