Wheels & tires?

Hey everybody, I joined the lowering club finally! But I'm do't know what to get yet. I will soon be putting my truck back to stock height & then lowering it for the stance that D. has. But I was wondering what wheels & tires to get. I can't make up my mind on either 17x9 Cobra R's or 18x9 Saleens. I think that I'll be going w. the Saleens after all. But I don't know what color to get or what not. But if anybody can help me out, that would be awesome! And does anybody know where I can get a "key" or what not to lower my truck & what should I do in the rear? THANKS

I think I may go w. these wheels...





DESCRIPTION: This is an Awesome set of two18x9" and two 18x10" White Saleen Style Mustang rims. These are powdercoated white with a clear coat protectant! These replicas are awesome looking wheels and are new in the box, never mounted. Ours replicas use the original size centercap.

FITMENT: These wheels will fit 1994 - 2004 Mustangs. Also: Ford Explorers with 1/4" spacers.

SIZE AND SPECIFICATIONS: The wheels are 18x9 with a 5.95" backspace (+24mm offset) and 18x10" with a 6.35" backspace(+22mm offset). The lug pattern is 5x4.5 (114.3mm).


^^ Will I have to get some spacers for these things to work?

And maybe these tires...





You are bidding on a set of 4) Like new P255/55R18 Dunlop SP Sport 5000 tires. These tires retail for around $180.00 each. Treadwear rating: 340. Traction: AA. Temperature: A. Speed rating: 104H. These tires have less than 10 miles on them. All of our used tires are air-tested and checked for defects. Some of the used tires we sell may have required a repair and we guarantee all our tires.

Very soon, the lift will be off by Sat. And I'll just be on some stock 2000 Mustang GT wheels for now. And I'll hopefully be about the same height as D.

I edited the 1st post, tell me what you think!

in the rear, just flip the shackles. will bring rear down around 1.5-2".

come down here this weekend. we can both take our lifts off. two pairs of hands are better than one.
