nothing less than 19's. These cars make 18's look small. Ford did a good job with the 00 cobra R by giving them 18's from the factory.

That's because Ford has a great variety of good looking wheels, and they're cheap, especially when compared to GM wheels.

Yes, the iForged look killer. I'm thinking I want something more retro for this car, but I change my mind daily. Since the '06 GT is Lisa's daily-driver and she takes it to college, I think I'll go with something low maintenance (not polished) and something relatively cheap so they can be curbed with authority. haha

those american racing wheels are quite expensive, definately more than you want to spend for what he said they will be used for. especially if they might get curbed now and then.
