Got my new wheels on Friday, very happy with the deal i got and i love the look of them compared to the 20's i had. The wheels are 18x9/18x10. The front tires are 265/35/18 and the rears are 295/35/18. The tires are BFgoodrich g-force kdws, got the whole package for $750, rims and tires.

soon to come is a fiberglass bed cover that im getting for $100 from a friend, will be painting the valence, bumper trim, grill, dust caps on hubs and lowering the front another inch when it warms up.

the rims and tires i found on corral.net mustang forum in the classifieds, they were in KY and i drove and picked them up. They only have 5000 miles on them and the tread looks brand new. The guy needed them gone quick because he lost his job, so i lucked out basically.
as far as the color on the valence and trim, etc goes it'll be painted white.

Nice! New wheels look much better... I'm a sucker for OEM head units though... haha

There's a Silverado that I look at every day that just got your old wheels like a week ago... looked ugly IMO (no offense).
