thanks bud. Stealth gonna make it pop. stick out less then 3/4 inch if I had to guess.I’ll measure it though tomorrow. i tried to test the bumps a bit today.. no problem thus far. but time will tell lol. I didn’t like it at first but it’s growing on me.
Thinking of powder coating the stock 19s also. Maybe throw 10mm spacers on there also and swap tires for Conti dws or Michelin pilots.
I think I’m just gonna sell the other rims.. i have out more time then I should have into this one lol

Nice. I like the dws. Side wall is descent also.
I'm sure traction and ride comfort has improved. What about handling?

ride comfort and traction improved more then i expected. Quite a bit actually and True Handling is better. no road noise. Better wheel protection. Everything is better. Even fuel economy.

However there is less feel in the steering wheel of course and much more of a “floating“ feel. overall look is growing on me and when it’s 3/4 dropped I think it will be fine.
I did try the pirellis on these wheels just for comparison and it looks out of place.

so I have put a just shy of a couple hundred miles on the tires and figured I would have a little fun with a mustang today. Wish I could figure
out how to add my Dash cam video here but these still shots will have to suffice... at the light I stayed behind him rather then to the side and gave him at least a 3 car lead before these photos take place and I put it down..

So I have been posting here and there on different threads and at the advise of Mr 1st I am starting this thread so you can track my build. It is now ceramic coated inside and out and tinted. I changed the wheel cap style A few times bit settled on the GT covers below. I also installed some carbon fiber window switch covers.
I just got the de badge done and will update photos in a couple hours.

-Performance wise so far I have replaced the stock plugs with HKS XL45s and installed the new 2.5 JB4 tuner From Burg as well as a OCC on PCV side from addw1.

Coming up:
I will be doing a custom blackout and hood and trunk PPF (most likely some carbon fiber design) and some lighting modifications on the 20th. I have ordered the big bore Throttle body and high flow racing cat and will get that installed as soon as it arrives. Im waiting for my cold air intake to be ready and am looking into some other suspension modifications to help with traction.
Today I ordered a set of Pilot Sport 4s summer tires to help with the traction. should have those installed by next week.

Ill keep plugging away with more modifications and will update here only now. Below will be some pictures of the car and part installs as of now. Will add more with each update. 🍻 View attachment 1671 View attachment 1672
