Arrow Wheel shopping for '06 GT

I'm looking for some new wheels for the new Mustang. I'm leaning towards classic styling, I really like those 20" Axis wheels too. Anyone have any photos of their '05+ Mustang on aftermarket wheels?

Post up!

Thanks

Here's an interesting site you might take a look. Not sure what wheels are available to show or if more can be added. http://www.ponybuilder.com/home.html

Might want to look at FR500's. They make them now with the offset for the 05+ Mustang.

I found some on a new stang:








I have the Anthracite version on my 2002 GT

I like those wheels, though they'd look a little better on the new model 1" bigger or so.

That's one thing I have noticed about Ford guys -- they *always* go for a factory wheel when looking for an upgrade Ford probably made a killing on the 98 Cobra wheels...

They look half-way decent compared to whats coming on these 05+.

The 505's or 500's would look good.

Why that is, I dunno. To me, welds or some type of Ford wheel always looked best on a stang. Mine arent technically Ford though, theyre made by Wheel Replicas out of Katy. But they are a clone of the Ford FR500.

I dont know what size those are on the 05 up there, but mine are 18*9"

Those CCW 505s are gorgeous

The mustangs I've seen around here with aftermarket rims kind of look odd. Those with ford/ford aftermarket usually tend to look more natural. Mustangs don't see to blend w/rims as well as an f-body does - or maybe its just more difficult to get the right look. The few 'stangs I've seen w/aftermarket rims were pretty bland otherwise.

I'll probably go 20s on the street, 15s on the track. These Mustangs look great with 20s on them, probably since the cars are kind of large.
