    Guys, I'm getting my plans together for my car so it's ready for the spring. I've already done Barton Shifter, GT500 Wing, and scheduling Long tube, full exhaust and tune next week.

    I need help finding the right drag wheels. I'd consider the SVE style but I don't really love that style at all. I have been searching but I want to see Bogarts, Weld R/T, Champion, Centerline And some others.

    Post them up if you have them!

    Weld R/T, Racestar, and SVE are going to be your primary choices (easy to find/buy and affordable). Everything else that's cheaper will only fit older Mustang (pre-05) or will be stupid expensive for drag wheels. While Bogarts are super light, their front runners are known to bend on the street if you hit a pothole, and they are not cheap.

    I chose SVE, for a few reasons.

    1. I hate fighting shank lugs and washers. They bind, scratch, rust, etc. *McGard will eliminate rust, but they are $$$* SVE wheels accept stock lugnuts.

    2. I refuse to polish wheels. Racestars will not polish, they stain. Weld's have to be polished. SVE are chrome. Wash, dry, go! Other power coating options with Racestar are wash and go as well, just not their polished versions.

    Dark stainless SVE's. Being able to use stock lug nuts/studs with these wheels is a huge bonus

    If I had the cash, and the patience for shank's I would have bought weld RTS wheels! IMO they look unreal

    For the SVE Drag wheels, can you use nuts instead of the factory lugs? If so what thread pattern would you need?

    theres an all 15" wheel shot for you.

    if your interested in changing the front rotors to use 15's, these wheels are for sale right now for a decent (I think, lol) price & since your in philly we could meet up & save on shipping.

    just a thought.....:)

    I would consider that but I need to get the headers and tune out of the way first. Plus that would give me more time to consider exactly what i'm after. I really like the Weld Vitesse wheels and I havn't seen them on a 10+ Mustang but maybe theres a reason?

    Thanks guys!! The fronts are 17x4.5" with 2 1/4" back spacing with M&H 185/55 tires. I don't think the fronts will clear Brembo's if anyone is wondering.
    The rears are 15x10 7.5" with 275/60 MT Radial Pros.
