Re: wheels

Tire rack is a great start IMO.

You can probably slightly beat their pricing if you look around online enthusiast sites and mags...

Re: wheels

Bubba, if you're looking for replacement SVT wheels, here's where I recently found the best pricing on their stuff:

http://www.buyfordracing.com/shop/index.php?cPath=2_24

Here are the wheels I ordered from them recently for the SVO:

http://www.buyfordracing.com/shop/pr...roducts_id=288

Good service and unbeatable prices on Ford SVT stuff IME.

i like the 03's http://www.buyfordracing.com/shop/pr...roducts_id=276 better than the ones i have now http://www.buyfordracing.com/shop/pr...roducts_id=272
i want them black - do you think powdercoating or painting would be best?

With that said, I'm speculating that this thread will go along like your hunting knife thread. I'll quietly bow out now.
