Do you have LED strips in the lights... I think that's what's making your lights look odd.

Clean truck man

I found a set of 17 inch bullitts off a mustang for a pretty decent price..since I have to get new tires here soon anyways..should I buy them and paint them black??? or should I just stick with the stock painted steelies and invest in something else????

Btw, I'm considering losing the blue leds in the headlights..

17s will look better in my opinion. Some of the new mustangs require an adapter type spacer. I could be mistaken though. You may wanna research the offset and hub size of those bullets first. I hope they work for you.

Thanks for the feedback man, I'm looking at some off a 02' GT Stang(so that shouldn't give me any conflicts right?) and the others that I found...I'm not quite sure about... I'll have to call the guy tomorrow and see about the specs on that second set. Thanks again for the info!

Black 17" Bullits would have been my first choice for mine(silver XL) but after looking into it,they have too much backspacing.I tried a wheel from a doner mustang I have.The wheel set too far in under the wheelwell(?)I'm looking for something that'll stick out a little more(at least as far as stock lol)(I also tried my 10.5 inch wide bullits on the back for ***** and giggles)
Actually I like your current wheels better.They're unique and industrious.Plus they look good.If you get a wider and/or heavier wheel it'll affect your mileage.I assume that's important to you being a student.

Well, both sets of wheels some how fell through...adding to my recent bad luck streak.

andddd they are pretty tough little strips. I was kind of concerned about that at first but they've been in there for probably a good year and I haven't had any problems. I hardly run them anyways, that was my "I want my truck to be different phase" and I don't think it was going in the right direction now hahahah

Sorry for quoting both of those last posts separately, I've had a long day and I'm shot! haha

That all makes sense, both of the sets of wheels I was looking at fell through. But, even if they didn't after reading this I probably wouldn't have bought them anyways. I'm still learning about all this stuff(and I'm pretty clueless at the moment haha) so I appreciate giving me some input man!

I also appreciate the wheel complement! I figured I'd probably just end my wheel search and stick with them, they look pretty good in a different way and I might give them a well needed repainting here soon(after I finish taking off that *#&^% 10 year old dry rotted pin stripe)

Last quote I'm doing by its self....swear...hahah...it just keeps working out this way since it's taking me so long to type out logical sentences tonight...Sorry guys


But, Yeah I like them less every time I turn them on...I was considering taking them out, but I figured it would just be easier to leave them in and not turn them on haha.
