Wanted: pics of 2011 GT/CS or V6 Performane Package wheels on '07-'09 GT/CS

I have the chrome Bullitts by Ford Racing and the chrome is now peeling off of them. Due to that fact, I'm looking into a different set of wheels for my GT/CS.

I'm really interested in the 2011 GT/CS or V6 PP wheels, but I've only seen one pic of a set of those on an '05-'09 Mustang, and it wasn't a California Special. Does anyone have any such pics? I tried doing a search.

Very nice. Are those the GT/CS wheels or the V6 PP ones? Can't tell if they're black or charcoal.

Also, did you notice any ride or handling changes in going to the 19" wheels?

They are the gt/cs wheels, they are charcoal, and this isn't my car so I don't know if the ride or handling changes. My thoughts are that it doesn't change the handling characteristics that drastically.

Nice - I like that combo a lot. Now you have me thinking about looking for these as a 'new take off'. I like the stock polished wheels on my 08' GT/CS but after a few years, looking for a change - but still 'factory looking'. This fits.

Here is a photo of the 2011 GT/CS wheel on my 07, sorry it's not a GT/CS but it will give you some idea of how it will look.

I think the wheels would look great on a 07-09 GT/CS.

The GT/CS rims have "GT" embossed on the rim and have dark grey spokes . The spokes on the V6PP rims are black.

I have 245/45/19" Hankook Ventus tires on these rims, nice ride and handling and IMHO they are reasonably priced.

Your car looks fantastic and it's the one '05-'09 I could find a pic of with these wheels before posting this thread. Makes me want them more.

Thanks John, IMHO either the black or grey would look great on your candy apple red GT/CS.

That's what I was thinking too. Given the choice, I'd probably go with the black ones, but I'd be thrilled with either.

I put a set of 2012 GT/CS rims on my 2007 GT. They look great, but the OEM P-Zeros have horrible grip. I am thinking of what to replace the tires with. You can see in the second photo I have a problem with wheel gap. What is the best way to fix? Spacers, or fatter tires, both? I was told try not to go above 255's with these rims. But I swear I saw a guy on here (or in another Mustang forum) with 315s on these rims. Anyway, I need to replace the tires, and I'd like to close the gap. Any ideas, pics to share?

Did you mean the 07 (at the begining dealer installed then factory) v6 performance not pony package. i believe they were similar to *Miraruder style
