Hey guys! :D Thought id post up a sneak peek of the new wheels i'm picking up next weekend.. 17' Ronal R41's with 235/45/17's. I cant wait to get them on the car. Then get her all clean and take some pictures. The huby is supposed to be putting on sho rear disc setup so it stops and looks better too..

Yeah and the guys selling them for a sick price too.. With tires and the wheels are mint it'll rock me less then most are charging for cobra r reps or real without tires.. Which these look very close to and is what we wanted.. it was Cobra r's, volvo r's or the ronal R41's. Well we ended it scoring these for a great deal..

Very nice. A lot of Volvo wheels work w/ the Taurus and I always preferred the 5-spoke design on cars.

These bare a striking resemblance to SVT T-bird wheels. I want to say they even look a bit more aggressive. :D Those will look freaking SWEET. Throw a set of 5mm spacers on to get close to, and surpass, the SVT's offset (+39mm)
