    I like it either way, but for $50 and a lot of work, you did an awesome job on those wheels. The finish is fantastic!

      I like it both ways - nice car! ...the one thing I will say is, with the new look - the rear needs to come down a little and the rear tires need to be an inch wider..

      The rear are 235/55 r17(the stock tires for an 08 mustang and came with the wheels) the front are 225/50 r17(take offs from a co-workers wife's maxima) I would definitely go wider in the rear if it was in my budget!

          I think it looks great both ways! I'd keep both sets of tires because it totally changes the personality of the car. Almost like having 2 cars!

            I like it the old way because i'm old school.
            The new way looks good too.
            Please yourself, you are the one who has to drive and look at it!

            If you really want to get Johnny Dart going just talk about your latest HEI 4 pin conversion. Poke poke. I couldent resist. Johnny your ok brother.

            BTW Jonnydart440 dont mind the guys trying to give you a buzzkill i think the stang wheels look great. I briefly concidered em on my build but decided on body colored steelies and poverty caps.

            I like both looks. But if I had to pick one it would be the stang wheels it looks great and must handle alot better too. Great job on the wheels also they look new...

                It's not just about looks, it's about performance, the tire compound technology selection in 16"+ BLOWS AWAY anything from the 14" and 15" camp.

                It gets me every time, everyone is quick to hot up an engine, but put lives in danger, traded without a thought to antiquated aesthetic principles.

                I like it and kudos for doing it on a small budget. Changing the stance is debatable, personally I'd leave it alone.

                Hi Woodsy,
                I would do 17" steelies if i could get em to where they mount a stock 9" dog dish mopar hubcap. Paint em black, install the caps. I think that would be great. Maybe someday i could get somebody who makes these.

                  Don't change the rake it would look like a boat trying to plane. Looks nice.

                  I agree, most old mopars had the low cut rear wheel openings. Levelling it out will make it look ass draggy in the back. Looks good as is.

                    Johnny, I have a new set of wheels to go on my dart. I like the old school too but your new look is outstanding, really like it. If you don't mind me asking...what size tire did you run on the front with the 4" wide. That is what I have for the front of mine, looking for a good tire size. Thanks
