What tires/sizes are those? The 19" looks really good, bigger than 18" and smaller than 20"... I guess that's the point.
Yeah, I think the 19's look perfect on the S197's, 18's seem to be just not enough and the 20's are a tad too much. The tires are Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercars in 255/40-19 & 285/35-19.

They are a chrome housing with a smoked lens. I got them here.

But you are thinking of doing something about the fake scoop?


It looks incredible Jim. You've really done a great job. I don't know how could make a better looking Alloy 2007 GT.

Well, yeah I want to. I would love a 2.5" Cervini cowl hood like what you got or even a stock none scoop hood. I have never been crazy about it but I need to go easy on the funds for awhile. Soooooo I guess it stays for now. I think it looks ok seeing hose the honey comb in it matches the upper & lower grill's.

Thanks again!


Would it not look as good if it was a 2008??

Did you notice any difference in ride quality? I love the way they look on the 05-09 cars. I was considering them for the SGT before that plan was scrapped.

Yes, well, yes. Ok its tough to say. The old GT500's were pretty smooth and I haven't driven it much with the winter weather. But as I was driving home yesterday on a very bumpy patched up road I did think to myself that it seems to be very smooth, smoother than I ever remembered it being. I was concerned about the lower profile tires being on the larger rims. The 07-09 GT500's had 255/45's & 285/40's, these are 255/40's & 285/35's. Thats usually a recipe for disaster in ride quality but I was pleasantly surprised.

What's on the SVTPP rims? same size?

Fronts are 265/40/19 and rears are 285/35/20. And right now, nobody makes a set of exact size replacement tires for it except the F1 G:2 that are on it. Some have the fronts, but not the rears, others have the rears but not the fronts. That should be fun when it needs tires. Hopefully more will come out by then because right now I'd probably be looking at $1600-1700 for a set, and the treadwear rating on them is only 200.

Wow thats a wide front tire. Do you find it to track groves much? Mine seemed to do it with the old rims when I was pulling up to stop lights where the heavy trucks had put deep tracks in the road.

I was just looking at replacement sets for mine on tire rack and matching sets range from $790 to $2200' the OE F1's go for $1200. I'm not going to like having to replace those. This will only get worse too, with the cost of petroleum & natural rubber going through the roof I have seen a 30% increase in tire cost for our shop at work. We are looking at a $35k increase in tire cost this year just due to pricing.

Tread wear on mine are 220, not much better. Guess I going to have lay off the smoky burnouts that have become so easy with the 4.10's

I have noticed it "hunting" a couple of times like it wanted to follow certain grooves in the road. And the fact that our state is neglecting our roads while they turn to **** doesn't help matters any. Where are all of my tax dollars going? Oh yeah, I remember now. Just can't post it in this section of the forum.

I thought you 10+ers and Shelbyites had your own forums anyway. That's what they always tell us.

Well we occasionally feel the need to grace the little people with our presence. It helps to keep them in their place.

Don't forget the smartass attitude and the quickness to attack and argue.

Thanks! Those look exactly like the ones from AM for less than half the price.
