White truck and FR500s

Looking to get a set of FR500s for the winter tires.Not sure which color to get? Truck is white and I was thinking the light grey ones that way they are diff color then the summer wheels. Let me know what you guys think and post some pics of your white trucks and FR500s. And yes I have gone thru all the mustang/FR500 posts already

Ya gonna lower soon as I can get all the parts Im looking at from people. Gonna run a 17x9 w/ 235-55-17 Winterforces for the winter then 18x9 & 10s w/ 275-40-18 and 315s on the back for the traction part

Looking to do DJM arms to start with on the front and flip the shackles and see if I like that first and then maybe more depending on what it looks like

I like the way those wheels look. The black with polished lip looks SICK!

Are these the same wheels as the stock 03-04' cobra's?

If so I got a buddy selling a set I think?
I was going to throw them on my mr2 but they belong on a Ford. Not a toyota.

03-04 Cobra wheels were 5 spoke usually unless they had an option for another wheel?

All regular '03/04s were the same style but chrome was optional. '03 10th Anniversary cars had multispoke wheels... different style though.

literally the same color and size as mine.

17x9/10.5 Black. polished lip.

OK so shipping from Sacramento to Cleveland Zip code 44128 ( just picked a random one.) $153.40 using regular express mail. If I ship it out to you tomorrow you would get it around noon time Friday.
Oh, I forgot to mention...That for only one box....

hahahahahaha

Hmmmm I wonder how much it would be for FedEx same day? LOL

4 wheels. 120lbs worth of packages....

Sure they would. Get some winter tires for the 10.5's so you have more grip in the rear during winter. then switch it back to the summer tires when the weather starts getting nicer. ;-) lol

Would be nice but the biggest I could get my Winterforces in were 235 in a 17 unfortunately. I coulda gone bigger in the Blizzaks but I wasnt gonna waste the money on those,thats just insane $$$ when the Winterforces have better tread pattern and grip IMHO

Aren't 9's going to be a little wide for a 235/55? My old Mustang had 245/45s on 9" wheels on the front and it looked a little stretched.

45 up front and 35 in back because thats about the only way to get tires for the 17" staggered setup
you have more options with a 18" rim for tires but their also way more expensive and Ride a LOT rougher
also fyi im running a 1 inch spacer up front you will need a minimum oy 7/16ths to run mustang rims!
