Does not sound good at all. Not to mention the pattern on the Tauruses is so screwed that alot of the really nice wheels don't come in our bolt pattern. Then your stuck with a set of hot wheels that maynot fit your car. I already know you know better!these kids my cousin jason hangs out with said they can get me some 20's with brand new tires. for $500
So you like the raked look too. I loved it on the Prowler!If I were to buy a Mustang today, I'd drop it 2.5" and put 17" rims on the front and 18"s on the rear.
Unfortunately not. I like the Saleen rims myself but it's a no go. I did however find these...i know this question has been asked a trillon times, but do mustang rims fit on our cars?
I wonder how he compensated for the backspacing. I know it's usually below 35 on a Mustang.I remember seeing a picture on here a while back...a guy had a station wagon with the Cobra-R rims on it.
Those were the Cobra-R replicas that were made for Thunderbirds. Jeramie (95SE) has a set.Originally posted by godspunk32@Jul 26 2004, 12:36 PM

for some reason i always thought you had 18's on that.Originally posted by jtkz13@Jul 27 2004, 12:17 AM
I think 17's is about perfect the Taurus, especially if its lowered. If you go too big you lose the side profile of the tire and the ride will not be too nice. Plus, 18" tires are lots more expensive than 17's. I never thought my 17's looked small:
Not to mention it would look wierd with huge wheels emphasising small brakes.Originally posted by jtkz13@Jul 27 2004, 04:36 PM
Getting better brakes due to bigger rims isnt neccesarily needed if you stay at or about the same weight as stock. The wider tires will help with braking, but if you put 40lb 20" wheels on its gonna hurt braking, acceleration, and handling pretty negatively.
