Hello, Everyone I had the 2010 GT500 convert 18x9 wheels installed today. My 2008 GT500 looks perfect now. These are the wheels that should have came with the car. Everything went well, new bands and TPMS sensors. Sync the TPMS sensors and the brand-new ford wheels look beautiful. I will never put the originals back on. Save them yes but I think alot agree the 07-09 GT500 rims are the worse wheel SVT ever made. Anyways I will will have some pictures up by tomorrow on this page.

Congrats on the new wheels, and I do like them, but can't agree on the '07-'09 wheels being the worse ever. They pay tribute to the wheels on the Ford GT, which the engine also shares alot with, so I personally think the stock wheels are perfect for the car. In addition, I think they outright look great. I am sure yours look great with the new rims, too, just not sharing the hate on the '07-'09 stockers.....

Here you guys go! www.mvpwheels.com is where i got them original ford OEM GT500 wheels 18x9 Convert wheels.

 

 

Finally the price has come down.

 

 

Thanx jason, I think they look really good, and it isn't that I dislike my '08 wheels, I just prefer the simplicity (and clean lines) of these five spokes. Plus the color will look smokin' hot on my black 'vert

They look real nice. I wasn't sure when you said you got the 18"s, but they look perfect. Now with your pictures I would say I would think the 18's fit the car better than the 19's probably do.

Just out of curiosity why did you go with the vert wheels, the 19" wheels are forged and the size is much more suited for such a big car. I am sure you will like the 18's but IMHO the 19"s would have been the way to go.

 

 

 

 

Went with the 18's because they will fit my tires off my originals. Also like the polished look with dark grey painted inlay. plus its a original wheel.

The 19's look at home as well.

 

 

Those wheels would look better if the suspension was lowered a bit ... I'm just saying. :)

 

I couldn't agree more. I'm following 6-Speed's lead here, but gaining quick.:)

yup, given the choice of the 2010's, I would have gone 19's too........widen the rears and go 325/30's...........

 

 

 

 

 

Hey!!! You stole my plan....just waiting for the price to be "reasonable" on the 19's :salute: Although the 07-09 wheel I am getting used to now.

I have a 2010 Vert, and have taken 2 trophies this weekend... BOTH judges commented on my wheels (the orig 18"s) and couldnt believe they were the stock rims. The 2-tone grey/machines looks awesome on every color I've seen them on.

Also, FYI, not too many tire choices for the 19"s - but MANY better, stickier tires in the 18" sizes.

You could easily send the orig 18's to Weldcraft, have them widened from 9.5 to 11", and then slap 325 width rubber on them.

Just my .02

Tob,

 

The 19's look sweet, too. I hadn't seen your pictures before. I agree, both the 19's and 18's look sweet on the '07-'09's.

I like those '10 wheels also and if/when I get mine they will be 18s as well.

 

American Muscle has after market '10s for a little less and are avail in 18x9 or 18x10 and come in several finishes. I like the 18x10 chrome and eventually want to get some good drag radials, but in the mean time I can use the OEM tires.

:peelout:

Thanks James and everyone! I am sooo excited about them! I really wanted them and almost traded my car in on a 2010. But now im happy I kept her. The 2007 thru 2009 look the best especially with these original Ford OEM wheels! I love these wheels they look how a SVT product should!
