You will find Ford uses Black Wheels on all models that use the Brembo Brake package. As everyone of us will attest, you can’t drive the car around the block without the wheels getting dirty from the brake dust. A good ceramic glaze on the wheels will make them shine and reduce the labor of cleaning (a lot of rim front and rear to clean).Ok, the back story.
In August we decided to buy a Mustang. We wanted a nice one that was fast. We already own a 1967 coupe with a 289 and a T5 5spd. So, we set out to drive them all. We started with the Rousch, the one just under the P51, I think it is the stage 3. Sorry I've never been a fan of the Rousch so when I drove this Supercharged beast I was pretty impressed. I thought the suspension could be better since it was a handful in anything other than a straight line. We drove the GT next and, well, it is just nothing to write home about. Then we drove the GT350. Wow what a beast and it handled! The redline was tough at first but I had a smile from ear to ear as did my wife.
So we set out to buy one. We found several and in the colors we liked. the shadow black and the magnet grey. We drove four. None of the dealers would make what I considered a fair deal. So I blew them all off and went to a dealer that said they would order one for me. I paid under sticker and ordered and 18 in Kona Blue without the stripes. When it arrives in a couple weeks I will send it to my paint shop and have a silver stripe with two pin stripes painted on. Vinyl is so beneath this caliber of a car. Then window tint and now to one questions.
I am old school and hate black wheels. I would like to either buy a set of wheels or have these stripped and polished. I can't find any decent wheels since buying new wheels are my first choice who makes wheels for these cars? I saw some that even had some blue ones that were cool. I saw them on this forum but can't find the thread again. So any help would be good. As for polishing them, I know I would have to put the car on stands and remove the tires from the wheels and find a shop that could strip and polish them.
I am looking at adding the hood shock mods, oild catch can and the fourth brake light option.
What is your opinions of these mods? Will they add value or subtract it?
Thanks for reading my long winded post.
Good, luck with your new purchase, you’ll love it!

(P.s. should have stuck with the Magnetic Grey, Camo on the road... ).
