I bought them used, from a gentleman who wanted 20" wheels all around on his car. He bought a second set, then sold me the 4 19" wheels. One pair of tires was shot, one was like new, which was exactly what I needed since I wanted wider rubber in the back. I had the good tires dismounted, the correct TPMS sensors installed (the 2010+ sensors won't talk to the OBD computer on the older cars), and remounted. I will need to reprogram the sensors, and tell the computer the tire size has changed.

I am taking my car to the big meet hosted by Grabber this Saturday, will have plenty of photos then, if not before.

Also did you have to change out the tpms?

 

Yes you need to change the TPMS sensors, which are integral with the valve stem. The sensors for the 2010 to 2014 models are incompatible with the 2007 to 2009 TPMS. You can swap in the ones on your OEM wheels or buy new ones. I suggest buying new sensors since they have an internal battery and therefore a limited life (6 to 10 years). I purchased a set from American Muscle that are made by Oro-Tek; they are integrated with the valve stem. I had Discount Tire install the sensors and balance the tires. I have a TPMS transmitter so I was able to train the sensors after installing the wheels.

Yes I bought a set of take off wheels and tires from a 2012 GT500 with low mileage. My OEM tires were getting old and buying the wheels along with relatively new tires was a bonus. The backspace/offset is fine for our model. I noticed the rear wheels/tires don't stick out into the fender as much as the OEM combination. Another thing to consider is calibrating the speedometer for a larger size rear tire.

Thanks guys they look awesome. Snake handler, did you buy two full sets of 19/20s to see if you liked the 19s or 20s? Also did you have to change out the tpms?

I bought a set of Ford Racing 19s and installed the banded sensors. The 19s and 20s are take offs and I have them on my Boss 302 now. The 19s are on all four corners on the GT500.

I know they're not the track pack wheels, but this is what the stock '10-12 wheel looks like on the '07-09 cars. I like subtle and the original shiny wheels were too much for me with the alloy stripes on a black car. Now the wheels nearly match the stripes.
