Anybody running these wheels? I like the simplicity of them. I think they'd look good on a black Mustang (like mine).

I found that yellow one after I posted, but would like to see more pics. Damn, I just put on my black FR500s late last Summer. Probably only been on less than 2 months before getting tucked away for the winter. I really like my setup now and remember seeing the Konigs a while ago but forgot all about them when I bought my wheels.

I really haven't seen anyone else running them, which is even better, IMO. I'd like to see more pics though.

Might have to think about selling the FRs...

No problem. It's a UPR fuel door in black. It's not as glossy as the paint, but looks pretty darn close. Here's another pic for you:

No problem. They are in pristine condition. I'll let you know what I decide in a couple of weeks or so.

any idea on a price if you do? tires? info, lol. i need to know how much to save up in case.

HuskerGT
03-12-2008, 09:11 AM
The tires are Kuhmo Ecstas. 265-35-18 up front and 275-35-18 out back. The fronts are worn on the inside a bit from not having my adjustable caster/camber plates on there. Other than that lots of tread left.

Not sure on price yet, but I'll let you know.

These are the only other ones I have:

Hope it helps. I can tell you that I love it. It's probably more, what I would call, an anodized finish. The fit and finish is great. Although I had to use my dremel to remove a little metal on the opening of the car to get it to fit perfectly, but nothing major at all. It took 5 minutes.
Very solid, no rattles. Opens and closes great. You'll like it if you get one.

Anytime. And thanks for the compliments.
Back on topic, xsoutherngun89x, I had someone do a photochop with the wheels and don't like it afterall. I'll probably run with what I have for now.

I'll keep you in mind though. Thanks for the intersest.

No, the one I ordered came black. But you could get one that is the natural aluminum finish and have it painted to match. It would look sweet.

I've always liked those...but the 8.5" width max didn't work well for me so I never got them.

Anyone know if another companies offers something extremely similar?

I say keep the ones you have now. They fit the car better imo.

i have thorco's wheels now. they'll be going on this week finally. i only got 245/40/18's because i wanted to keep the drive ratio similar and also hope for some weight savings.

are they working out for you okay?

i really liked the style. i'm a plain 5-spoke kind of guy. that and i didn't want to get saleen/bullit/cobras because i see them all the time.

got home late from work. they're on. two thoughts. i should have gotten at least 255's and i really need to lower my car...

pics will come tomorrow, hopefully.

i have no issues with the rears at all. im probably gonna uprade from a 245 up front to a 265, fels like it needs more grip

feels like a smoother ride, maybe because of new tires as well, but my old rims have had almost 10 years of abuse.

rained tonight, plus i had a dinner to speak at. if it's clear tomorrow there will be plenty of pics. starting to wonder if i should powdercoat the centers black.

my reasoning for 245's based on drive ratio and weight.

i got used to my 275's i had on some 03 cobra 17x9s up front.. damn extra weight, buy more bolt ons was my reasoning :hammer:

lol thanks for the compliments!

unfortunately it's still like 30-40 degrees out and i haven't cleaned my car in almost a year. the power of rainwash @85 mph in torrential downpoor. only hydroplained twice.

took pictures of the foglights at night as well, but they didn't come out sharp at all. manual focus in the dark ftl.

prokit if you want a drop but nothing too drastic I had it, wasnt quite low enough for me but looked wayyy better then stock and I didnt have problems bottoming out ever.

04-01-2008, 01:30 PM
wow, those look awesome on there bro.

I ran 245's up front and 275's out back when I owned them :hammer:

great looking set of wheels imo. I'd suggest H&R super sports but I'm biased.
