What aftermarket wheels do you guys have on your cars. I was thinking of some american Racing 5 spoke style or some Cragar 5 spokes. Or should I keep the originals on it Pics please.

G,S I WISH I COULD HELP. BUT IM GOING THRU THE SAME THING, IVE LOOKED AT EVERY PIC I CAN FIND, AND STILL CANT DECIDE. THANK GOD IM STILL A YR OR SO BEFORE I HAVE TO MAKE THE CHOICE, BUT EVERYTHING I SEEM TO LIKE STILL HAS A BASIC DESIGN THAT RESEMBLES THE MAGNUM 500S. DEFINITLEY THINK IT WILL BE A SPOKE TYPE WHEEL. CRAGERS SS IS STILL ONE H--- OF A WHEEL. IF YA FIND A GOOD ONE LET US KNOW, MAYBE YOU CAN PICK OUT MINE

I got these from Summit racing they are 15x8 magnum 500 replicas. they are heavy wheels. Some surface rust is starting to form on the outer lips after 2 years from moisture and cats pissing on them.
I should have been waxing or polishing them but I was too lazy.
I like aluminum because you can usually polish them back, once steel rusts then there's not much you can do.

The wheels on my car actually come from an 1979 AMX . they are 14 inch wheels, but I love how they look on the car. the first photo is not from my car but to show what they look like.

i'm going with the magnum 500's in a modern day size of 18x9 front and 18x10 (most likely). i have been thinking of getting torque thrust look-a-likes for 94-04 mustangs in 17x8 front and 17x10.5's rear. these tires however will be a tad cheaper. but in these, i can't decided i want them in chrome, gun metal color, or polished lip with black.

Hi guys!... my car has a 14 x 8" URUGUAYAN made ford wheels... It´s incredible there are actually something made in here to work in the automotive world... anyway...

This kind of wheels were in the 70´ the upgrade to factory steel wheels... actually, the US Embassy (first owners of my car) put this set of wheels on the car... The original steel wheels past as new to the past owner of the car, with the factory tires too... Tires were long gone and the wheels were stolen from the car a decade ago, so here we are... riding on a Ford Uruguayan wheels...

Personally, if i had to choose, i´ll go for the 15 x 8 Magnum 500 like Jorge shows in his vert. It´s a soft combination of classic but yet agresive sport look that in my opinion goes pérfect in our body styled cars!

Enjoy!! Smile
