Tire rack is a great start IMO.

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

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

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

Good service and unbeatable prices on Ford SVT stuff IME.

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

i thought i read someplace that powdercoating breaks them down due to the heat. is that not true?

dudes were having issues in corners with wheels shattering

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

come on pete, give me some suggestions.

if she's messing up rims now make sure you don't get an easily breakable rim. soft metals would probably be a bad choice. go to a local car parts place (not autozone something like an accessories place) and flip through some catalogs.

Never heard that. I know people that have had marchesini magnesium wheels powdercoated...and had no issues. That's a damn fragile wheel too.
