    Yea man. I took a hit in the ass with my CCW purchase. I wouldn't spend a dime over that...$7K for wheels? Driving around Pittsburgh, PA and Morgantown, WV roads? Hahaha probably better off sleeping with a Vegas hooker and hoping for the best lol!

    I agree. I do like forgeline a lot. I’m getting ready to order some cf5’s or f14’s with deep concave for my cobra. They’re very light and strong, but even in custom sizes I’m looking at $450 a wheel. Not cheap but not expensive either.

    One of my employees is from Dayton area and her brother is an engineer at Forgeline, so it’s something I’ve always wanted; order a custom set of Forgelines for one of my cars. Designed and built in the USA, race proven quality and high end looks; can’t go wrong there man.
    Still, if you’re thinking of Forgestars, their new drag 5-Star but using one of the wide 18s all around could be sweet.
    Looking forward to seeing what you chose.

    No one with an 03'-04' Cobra runs any of those wheels.... No one.

    I like the factory wheels. Always have and was hoping someone would make a good 18" version of it. I am anticipating needing a bigger wheel when I hope to upgrade the brakes some day. Only upgrade I made back in the day was the BAER eradispeed rotors and some pads. The car seems very under braked for how the rest of the car is built.

    Damn those FF1's look dead on. Thanks for showing those. Did not know of them. The seven spoke CV1's also look sick.

    i think they told me the same thing... about 5 years ago!

    yes to me this is the biggest limiting factor of these wheels - the are made for the majority of mustangs with sra. they don't have the correct offset for the irs.

    Honestly I think the stock wheels look the best on these cars. It's how you know it's a cobra through and through

    I'm one of them that love the look of stock (ish) wheels, meaning I have black chrome reps and wouldn't want anything else on the car honestly. My problem is the quality of the reps out there, my current setup is from Wheel Replicas and after 13 months of having them, the chrome plating is flaking off the inside of the wheels and inside where the lugs go on pretty much every single wheel. :confused:
