    Hello,

    I see the post about wheels, but I hesitate, I want to replace my originals wheels by Mach 1 wheels, I have 2 choices; machine finish like the originals or chrome finish, I never saw a Mustang whit chrome mach 1 wheels, what is the best choice ?

    My ride :

    I just command the chin spoiler, also chrome wheels are 17x9 can I install 245/45/17 on this size of wheel ?

    Thank's

    Francis

    Chrome finish with the DD in hte rear on some 315" tires would look badass! And yes you can fit 245's on a 9" rim...hell I had them on a 7" wide rim lol

    Machined Finish

    And I would not put a 245 on a 9" rim. It looks stupid, the sidewall stretches not to mention it's not the safest thing to do.

    I like the machine finish. Chrome is to flashy for a mustang IMO.

    Not the tire debate again, I've said it once and I will said it again

    JUST BECAUSE THE TIRE FITS ON THE RIM, DOES [size=10pt]NOT[/size] MEAN THE RIM FITS THE TIRE.

    I second the motion of no chrome. In my opinion it is the most difficult wheel to take care of. Lots of polishing and free time spent on just the wheels. I also like the machined finish wheels, but my favorite is Hypercoated silver wheels. My current wheels are '03 cobras with 275/40-17 kumho escta supras, but my next wheels are going to be 18" saleen replicas in hypersilver. O0

    Hello,

    I found all models wheels for Mustang Mach 1 :

    17" black chrome et deep dish (255/40/17 front and 315/35/17 rear) :

    17" machined and deep dish :

    17" chrome and deep dish :

    18" chrome Mach 1 replica :

    I think for a simple GT the best choice is 17" machined non deep dish.

    Thank's for your advice O0

    On a 9" rim, a 275 is your best bet. And running 275's around is not a problem, I have no rubbing what so ever on my setup.

    That's what I have all around. Mine doesn't rub either.

    I disagree. Wheels make the car. I >was forced< at one point to put Mach wheels on my car. I didn't like the look of factory M1 wheels AT ALL! A deep dish wheel is a must with those style wheels for them to look right IMO. I think those black chrome one's would look pretty sweet or machine finished 18's. With those wheels though I wouldn't go with chrome.

    I would definitely go with the black chrome ones. I don't think the mach machined finish looks that good.

    Off topic a bit!! That's a sweet ride. I have a 95GT white looks exactly like yours with only 50000km on it. You saisd were you getting a chin spoiler, where do you get them and what do they look like on our cars?
