    Looks great. So what are the other specs on the wheels/tires? Backspacing and tire sizes please.

    Thanks for the info. I can look up the paint code at work. We have all the paint books. I wanted to see how it compared to the color i had picked out. Is it a real heavy metallic in the sun? I also like the dark blue that they have on the new 5.0 mustangs too. I'm still looking at choices. What brand tires do you have? Those sizes you have posted seem hard to find?? Have you done anything to the interior? Does it have a LS motor? Thanks again!

    Thanks. Very close to what I've been thinking about doing. Do you think a 255/40R18 would fit up front with 5" backspacing?

    You may have some wheel rub on the frame when turning hard, I know I do. I didn't notice until I was under the car the other day and saw the paint worn off.

    OK thanks. Maybe a 245 will "have" to do. Or maybe I can work with the edge of the inner fender out the outside edge and just get a 4.75" backspacing.
