2011 GT Coupe Ruby red chrome wheels

I have a 2011 GT ruby red base coupe modified with ROUSH mufflers (awesome sound), BMR lower control arms to help eliminate wheel hop, BARTON short throw shifter. Now I'm shopping around for 19" chrome wheels to replace my generic stock 18" wheels and 235-50 x 18" tires. Chrome wheels looked awesome with my ruby red color. Problem is, it is very hard to locate vendors who offer 19" chrome wheels. Any suggestions regards to brand or vendors ?? Also, like to get at the same time new tires that are little more aggressive looking, considering 255 to 275 and 40 to 45 sizes on 19" chrome wheels. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, John

Try: American Muscle, Late Model Restoration, & CJ Pony Parts. I'm not sure what their chrome selections are, but they do offer great wheel/tire/TPMS packages. Ask them for a forum discount, as well. Good luck!

I found my Advanti DST Svelto 19" rims at Tire Rack dot com. Technically, they're titanium mirror finish, but that's close enough to chrome to keep me happy.

No you don't, you have "Red Candy" LOL . . . . "Ruby Red" was introduced later, maybe 2014 or 2015? Anyway it is still the "best color" and my Red Candy car is nick-named "Ruby."

There are some chrome wheels still around, American Muscle and others have them. I'm pretty sure TireRack has some, and they also have a really cool tool where you can see the wheels on your car. I think chrome is more common in the "classic" design wheels such as Bullitts and less popular / less common on the more recent designs.

Personally, I thought my Red Candy looked awesome with black deep dish bullitt wheels. The silver "dish" sets the black wheels apart from the black tires and the black center section worked great with the overall red and black theme of the car. (Unfortunately those wheels will not clear big brakes and that's why I don't have them any more, otherwise they were perfect IMHO) Picture below is not the best lighting on the wheels, but the best I have handy.
