    How knows it could be your tires rubbing that is causing the sound.
    What is the sizes of your tires?
    I would get lowering springs first that way when you do get wheels
    and tires your mustang will look great.
    Go with the Eibach Pro Kit you will really like the ride quality with those
    springs.The Eibach Pro Kit springs will lower your mustang 1.5" all the
    way around.Get rid of the 4X4 stance it looks bad.
    What condition are your struts and shocks in and how many miles do
    you have on them? A decent set of struts and shocks will maintain good
    ride quality with your lowering springs.

    I'm going to get the rims first. I hate the way my stock size rims look because of the back end. The tires look small and tucked in.

    I'm fixing this problem with a set of black saleens. 18x9 up front and 18X10 out back. I love how sinister a white car looks with black wheels!

    The stock wheels don't look that bad.
    18" Saleen wheels would be really nice though. :naughty:

    Sweet man. I always hated how the rear wheels were not offset enough.

    Yeah you guys got it lucky. I have to wait tell mid or the end of the summer to swing the 18'' because I pay my car insurance and my car payment. I'm 16 SO I have about 10 bucks a week to spend after gas/car insurance/payment. So its a slow process for the wheels and tires but It will be done!

    Yeah I know I can't complain much right. I have to say though I do pay for my car payment, and insurance. Along with the gas and royal purple oil changes that gets pretty stressfull for a 16 year old. Any way Yeah I agree that black saleens will look :pimp2: on my car. I need to get some pics of it and make myself a sig. She only has 57,000 on her to.
