Maybe next year I can find one in the mid-high 30's with the 2013 coming out.

Pratt, I like black.

Pressure Ratio Is that my fault? lol

I think it has been because I have posted up cars running 11.30s with a tune, drag wheels and K&N filter in the stock box. Or auto cars running 11s with a tune and nothing else. Kind of makes a good case for these cars. hahaha

I will let you know if I see any good deals. Any specific colors? lol

13-15K+ miles, 400A premium cars, $24k-$27K

Lower miles and/or lots of options might get you $28-29K

smug 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.

I think with the tints, this car can pull of black wheels... thoughts? Looked over the wheels w/Sarah last night and she too thought she'd prefer black over the polished aluminum.
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...

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.

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.
