    ^^^Thanks.

    I am waiting on the rear wheels to come back from widening.

    The original 11" rear wheels do not fit the Big Brake kits, they fit the oem rear Brembo's, they fit the smaller Wilwood rear caliper upgrade, but not the Baer Extreme 6 piston calipers, even with spacers. The option for install on my car was to use original 9.5" front wheels that are contoured to fit the larger front calipers and have them widened for install on the rear.

    I bought these wheels from Shelby/Las Vegas and after fitting them on my 2008, I had the original 11" rears swapped back to them for a second pair of 9.5" fronts...............at some point I will get it all put together. When it is all said and done, it will be a "one of a kind set" 9.5" front - 11" rear and will fit All 2005-2020 (so far) Mustangs and GT500's even with the largest brake kits front and rear. I also have the correct center caps for those 2015/16 Super Snake wheels, but they are not shown.

    One question I have........Are the newer Super Snake wheels engraved as is shown on the 2015/16 wheel in the picture above? In 2017 the Super Snake wheels were not engraved "Super Snake", but instead used the center cap as the identifier. Of course from Shelby's standpoint using the center cap as the identifier and not getting the wheels uniquely engraved, there will be a savings in cost per wheel.

    Looks like center cap. I prefer the engraving. Not like they are not charging enough already.

    No, sorry, nothing further out. The only other pictures I took were for Tom at Shelby of the original rear wheel not fitting with the rear Baer Extreme caliper. <<But those were also close.

    I found this picture from a few years ago showing a very similar wheel style to what you are asking about shown on the GT500 on the left...........

    ^^^^^They look pretty good to me, and it you have a big brake kit that is nice, they allow for that brake kit to be seen and not blocked so much behind the wheel spokes.
