Those Forgestar F14's (or the cheaper copies) are hugely popular with the 2010+ Mustang guys. About 90% of the cars on S197 has them on their cars. haha Good looking wheel for sure.

The only issue with the Roush wheels is that they are HEAVY. Mine weigh a ton and they are only 18x10's.

One thing to consider is running the same size tires on all four. I run 275/40/18's NT-05's all around so I can get a little more life out of them by rotating them every season. These cars aren't necessarily light, so the added contact patch up front helps.

Unfortunately you are dealing with 19" wheels and that shit is not going to be cheap, wheels or tires for that matter. If you do go cheap you are going to get a look that everybody else has or some heavy ass/gay wheels.

My wheels & tires came in today. The box with the rears say 79# on the UPS label. ouch! haha

I wish Steeda made the "Ultra Lite 2" for the S197 cars. I like those wheels and they were pretty light. The 20" 5 spoke for our cars is not that attractive looking. But pretty light.

I am pretty sure I saw some 18" wheels that fit the Brembo brakes. I am sure there are not to many though. Good thing even a 20" wheel looks good on this body style.

The Weld RT-S wheels that I showed earlier in the thread are 18's. They are bad ass, but about $600+ a wheel.

1. Yes they are. But should look good on the car. Ford OE wheels with about 500 miles on them.






2. The Weld RT-S were one I though about too. But for the amazing deal I got on the GT500 wheels & tires I could not even bought 3 of the RT-S wheels. I will stick with the GT500 for now. Eventually I will look into a lighter set of wheels. Maybe.

The SVE and RTR(what the SVEs were based off of) wheels in 18s clear the Brembos.

Those are the old Goodyear F1's. You should burn them up and put a good sticky tire on there or you won't catch me in the twistiez.

Are you saying I shouldn't race my new DD? It is ok, I have the other street car to drive to work. lmfao

I want to try a few of the autocross events that they have at the Rosemont and such. To get some seat time so I can learn about the car and that style of racing. Should be a good year.

The Z71 is gone. All I own is the GT and Capri. GT = DD.

These look a lot like the VMR's I have on my car now. Breyton also makes this style of wheel but they are $1200/set...

Dear Eagle,
Please buy a multi spoke wheel like you originally posted, I think the TSWs would look real nice too. Every one puts a multi spoke wheel on the new Mustangs because they look fucking awesome and the car pulls it off. The 5 spoke wheels just don't look as nice on the new body style.
