New wheels and tires

Post by LowNSlow » Wed Dec 11, 2013 10:20 am

I'll have to get better pictures later...but my xmas present from my gf came in :)

18x9 18x10 2010 GT500 replicas
White shit on rim is residue from getting tires mounted.

Better pics later after I lower it.

Love that color of Mustang. Rims look decent. Just never been a fan of a rim with the spoke going to the outside lip of the rim

They're factory replicas....2010 GT500 style. I prefer more OEMish looking wheels on this car for some reason.

Only other wheels I'd want are a CCW drag pack or race stars....both track setups though.

They have to.. stockers are shitty tires + little bitty, lol.


Can't really test when it's this cold out...

I know before I could spin from a 40-50 punch on the OEM tires (With it cool out like it is)

It doesn't do that anymore... has to be better, lol.

Ran 12.4 @ 115 with 100* heat in the summer on OEM tires.

Hopefully when I goto the track in January I can do a low low 12 as is.

That's awesome man. What kind of MPG do you get when you're not driving it like it's stolen?

Anywhere from 25-28 highway and 20ish city...

Combined for the week (driving it like I stole it along with city and hwy driving) it usually gets around 18-19.

If I drive good all week long, low 20s.

Small gas tank so with premium, my fills up don't usually cost anymore than $50

Update : ran at the track a while back 12.2 @ 115.5 I think was the MPH...

Too cold to hook up, it was in the upper 30s out.


I think I can do 12.0-12.1 as is.
