New wheels and tires are always like Christmas. I put 17's on mine with 225 front and 245 rear. Wish I had put 245 front and 265 rear. Lesson learned. What did you buy?

Bright lime 72 Mach 1 with 351C 4V, with summit 600 carb(have a Holley too), Edelbrock dual-plane manifold, Hooker headers, 3 inch exhaust with flowmasters, 17 inch Eleanor wheels, FMX tranny, A/C, P/S, front disks and 350 rear gear. Drive it to work every day.

Nothing like new shoes. I just picked up a set for my Jeep. 37" Goodyear MTR's and some new rims to boot. When the Mustang tires wear out I will finally upgrade from the 30 year old 14" Cragar S/S (which I love). Pics when you can!

Sounds like you will have them on by July 4th so you can cruise around in style.

lol i thought so 2 .but my wheel studs are on the short side so i'm in the process of getting longer studs.the rear are done ,but the front have had slightly larger diameter studs (at the knurl ) installed way back in the day.and they cant get the exact same size but longer so the machine shop is going to see if they can do some magic .it opened a small bag of worms. the front drum brakes are going bye bye asap
