New rims for the Lesabre.

Postby Turbo1dr on Fri Oct 12, 2012 1:57 am

Just picked up these from Craigslist ad. 2011 Mustang wheels and tires. 18x8



YouTube video of a "walk-around".


The first image is a photoshopped picture of the car lowered. The following pictures are untouched. The car had about 1/4 tank of gas so the rear end is sitting a little high for my taste.

wicked. Really like the 5 spoke. just need to get rid of the center cap.
What size of tires are wrapping those? Any rubbing at all?

When I saw the first picture I was hopping it was real! I think you should look at lowering it. It would give it that extra attitude which would fit the overall look nicely.

No rubbing at all. The Tire size is P235-50-ZR 18". They are the stock Mustang Pirelli tires.
