Re: Matt's now-completed quest for the perfect 2013-2014 Ford Mustang GT

Thanks for the Paint-O-Shop. I also searched for quite a while trying to find a fully painted version of this wheel, with no success.

However, it is interesting to note that Foose Wheels made/makes a wheel that Ford obviously was trying to copy:

It was originally designed in 2012, and launched in early 2013 - Just before Ford started putting the wheel you all love to hate on the Mustang.

They look sooooo much better one solid color.

I'd go with black I think, but a bronze like I did on the FoST could look fucking hawt.

Re: Matt's now-completed quest for the perfect 2013-2014 Ford Mustang GT

just dip one of the wheels and see how it looks.  if you don't like it, peel it.
i'm in the camp that thinks these are ruining your otherwise awesome car. sorry.

That's the solution right there. Dip them.  up

Hammy, how has your dip held up?

The clear has definitely dulled but it still looks good, I'll take update pics when I put them on in a month or so.

Hey man, don't let him salt your game.  There are worse wheels out there.   

Those are def nicer than a Crosstek, but I actually prefer the Focus split 5 spoke black/ chrome to your style:

Regardless, yours are better than the saleen style 5 point wheels...


The Shelby wheels are pretty nice, but a full set would still be 1600-2000

SOMEONE out there will LOVE those ugly ass shoes you've got on there.  keep 'em nice and sell them ASAP.  lol   spider

AMR sells Mustang wheels that are dirt cheap that look like the Shelby wheels. No idea about the quality, but they are cheap enough that you might be able to not GAF while you run them as a placeholder if you need to look for something better. I actually like the way they look, irrespective of price. Again, you can't get out of those stock wheels soon enough. No amount of plastidip can salvage what is an inherently  terrible spoke design.

I feel bad for Matt. He has agreed he isn't crazy about the wheels, but all this shade getting thrown has to be a downer.

Re: Matt's now-completed quest for the perfect 2013-2014 Ford Mustang GT

Yeah, it's kind of shitty to get this amount of flak after seeking and finding a car I really wanted for months, and getting shat on because people hate the wheels. For what it's worth, I've had more people tell me in person that they really like them than the number of people in here that have told me how awful they are.

My original wheel preference were these:
http://mustangsdaily.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/10-2013-mustang-brembo-package.jpg

My car didn't come with them. I got what I got because the car attached to those wheels was one of the nicest examples of the car I was looking for. I don't like the wheels, but it's what it has. There is no possibility right now to replace them right now, but I will continue searching for the wheels above.

I haven't found a wheel that I like anywhere, including the AMRs above. But I'm an old fuddy duddy, not hip to the newest coolest trends...

Re: Matt's now-completed quest for the perfect 2013-2014 Ford Mustang GT

You realize there is a reason people online are more upfront about the wheels?

Anyways, everyone has said awesome car, if you don't want people's opinions don't share it online.

You guys are getting soft.
