Rims should look good. Now that you took the street glow sticker off i think it looked better with it on.

215 holy small batman!

Trigger01 11-17-2009 09:28 PM

Those are my least favorite Mustang wheels of all time. Those tires are smaller than the ones I have on my '86.

wrong lol came on the 97 gt's. They are the same design as the 96-98 cobra wheels. The only difference is these are painted silver. the cobras are machined.

these are the earliest cobras i know of that look similar ... his are indeed v6 rims

Edit: I see the confusion .... the ones he has dont have the holes in the center caps for the lug nuts which the cobras do .... so they came on gt's i retract my earlier v6 statement but they still arent cobras

xp1ik99 11-18-2009 12:02 AM

please show pics of the v6 those came on?? i cant for the life of me think of where else they came from, take into account those wheels havent been taken care of so they very well may have been polished up and black paint means nothing, plus i dont see ford putting 17 inch rims on a v6 car.......those are cobras

fiveohjoe 11-18-2009 12:27 AM

look like 94 95 cobras. they didnt start the ''machined look''(its a finish technique not really machined)until 96 97 . those years had the black inserts as well. most 98s came with the cobra r looking wheel but werent real cobra r's. the real cobra r's were a ffrp wheel you could order, or buy the very rare 1995 ''cobra r'' and they came on that car.
im willing to bet those wheels in the pic came off a 5.0 cobra. only 94-95.

rstangboi 11-18-2009 12:49 AM

so i guess we gotta start a "blacked out grill and rollin on cobras" club lol


oh, and i must add.....THANKYOU for takin off the streetglow sticker!!

demiseranger 11-18-2009 12:52 AM

Paint them black! They'll look great on the truck like that.
Congrats on a good find.

Ranger_Guy15 11-18-2009 01:15 AM

Nice cant wait to see the mounted pics. Streetglow delete ftw!

look closer, those are not the wheel covers that are proper for those rims. those look like the 5 stars from the last of the fox bodied gts.
before the body change in 99, 98 and some 97s got those on hte gt package but they were painted silver and weren't polished.

j99ranger4x4 11-20-2009 02:42 PM

I just put the end to this arguement, I am a diehard mustang fan and they came on 99+ v6's. End of arguement.


EDIT: v6 rims did not come in 17's until after 05. So they cant be off of a v6. They look like 94-98 cobra wheels but not the same finish.

Little late there bud. We already finished this argument on the other page lol. They came off a 1997 mustang GT. They are the same as the cobra rims, BUT they are painted silver instead of machined face/chrome and they done of the holes painted in a dark gray like the cobras. Also the center cap is different from the gt. i know the wheels your thinking of. I had them on my 04 v6 and they were 16's.
