Because of those things I thought it was amusing.
Sorry
Don't be so touchy.
I have both Ford Racing Chrome and Factory Polished 18x8.5.
Face it, I love the wheels.
1) My spell checker always changes Bullitts to Bullets. I've gotten to where I don't even notice it anymore. My bad.

2) When I bought the wheels from Tire Rack 8 years ago that's how they were listed. Ford Racing SVT Bullitts.
Now I see they have changed Ford Racing to Ford Performance. Hard to keep up.
Those wheels keep disappearing and showing back up. I see they are gone from the Ford Performance site again.
Funny, the black ones are always available.

I just didn't understand what was so funny about a couple spelling/grammatical errors......but I'm glad you were amused.
I feel like I did my good deed for the day. Now I can die a happy Man.

The 888's are even wider even though both are 335's and call for the same size rim.

The rims and tires are very impressive Sal. Very cool. I still have mine sitting in boxes waiting to be used. From 2007.

How come?
You know if you let tires sit too long they deteriorate.
Most shops won't mount a tire over 6 years old.

I only have the rims. I would need a new set of tires to go with them.
