Hey you!

(That's Matt)

we call each other Hey You .... :thumbsup:

It's time to help Matt with some wheels -- he would like 18 x 9.5 --

Matt --

Steeda Ultra-lites all the way.... If you feel like spending 4 grand on wheels, check out www.hrewheels.com

the model 547 is the best i think... or 545....

That first one looks a lot like the chrome FR 500 wheel.

I swear I saw the FR500 wheels for sale in a mustang magazine (last month maybe) but I'm not sure. Does anyone know where someone could possibly get FR500 wheels??

hey you,
I have had the busiest week this week.... ever! I really liked the ADR wheel you posted, I was looking at that one last weekend. and the 10 spoke someone else posted (HRE) I think, but not the fr500. I could not find a price for the ADR, nor could I find a place that has a chart on which vehicles it will/won't fit. Dean, what did you pay for yours buddy? if you don't mind me asking... I only have about 2500 to spend on wheels/SO3's. thanks everyone for your input!:thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Matt........ and yes it is snowing here again!

if you need any more, let me know and I'll mail em to ya. don't want to fill up this thread with pics.

hmmmmmmm....

wait a min.... =o)


ok, like I said, I don't want to fill it with pics :D :D


hey you, if you have good photo shop skills I would really like to see the ADR's on my car. I just found out they do have the bolt pattern to fit my car, and they are within my price range too. and they come in 18X9.5 me thinks we may have a winner!


If only I could see what they look like on my car (hint hint) ;)

Aaron94
02-10-2003, 12:36 AM
Is there a better picture of the wheel without the wording on there? whats the wheel model? wheelmax?

heh, check out these mad photshop skills.... ;)

Let's just say that isn't enough.;) :D

spittincobra01
02-10-2003, 09:32 AM
thanks Aaron, I think in chrome or polished they will look pretty killer! (the ones you used look kind of black) but I doo like the style! and your photo shop skills are a heck of alot better than mine:D

Dean, :eek: :eek: :eek: lol
no, I realized that wouldn't be enough.... so I have been working extra this past week, and will do more time in the next couple weeks. maybe double the amount I previously posted would be more realistic. :thumbsup:

spittincobra01
02-10-2003, 12:18 PM
ok, I went to order the ADR's today.... and found out the off set was wrong for my car :( (they only come in a 35 off set and we need a 20) so I guess the search continues....

steedas and FR500s:

Aaron94
02-10-2003, 03:09 PM
Yea you should work with photoshop, its fun. I only took one class at my JC, but i want to learn more. You dont really need to take a class though, all they did was go straight out of a book. The book is called Classroom in a Book.... hehe. You could probly pick it up at a local college, or from amazon.com. it comes with a CD with lessons, and the book is completely step by step, really easy to learn. i can change the color of the wheels if you want, or try some others... Looks like Windy has you covered though... =)

Windy, how much would you want for the wheels/tires? i have a friend with a 95 that might be interested. He needs to get a job first though... ; ) can i ask why you are so bitter towards steeda?

Aaron --

sorry -
just a moment of anger.... like I said above, I'll just pretend that the S stands for supercharged - since she is !!


As far as steeda - we received some very poor quality springs and it took them about six months to actually do something about it.....

they treated me very poorly - with disrespect actually. Now, I am hearing that they are doing the same to others (especially girls)......

that is a NO NO !!

very, very sad in the "customer satisfaction" department...

we are not real thrilled with their products. The springs were either defective, or they put the right part # on the wrong springs and sold us the wrong springs... Not too thrilled with the shifter either...

:(

steeda ultra lites

Aaron94
02-10-2003, 06:49 PM
You know you could just put another sticker over the "S" and tell yourself that they are SSR Integral's, because i think thats all they are....

spittincobra01
02-10-2003, 07:27 PM
I too would prefer to avoid steeda just because of the wrong doing they have done to a couple people out here and at least one friend..... ;)


life is too short to let business get so big you forget about customer satisfaction!:eek:

When I was at SEMA back in Nov. I had a chance to see the FR500 wheel up close. :hail: :drool: :hail: which reminds me I need to call my distributor and see what my cost is for them ;)

spittincobra01
02-12-2003, 08:25 PM
so.... anyone have any other ideas besides steeda.... for obvious reasons, that would be 2500 or less a set of 4?

why are these cars so hard to find wheels for?

Spiffy668
02-12-2003, 08:47 PM
What about the SSR GT3 wheels? they come in 18x9 through 18x10, the only pic I could find, is on a 300 zx

http://www.z32.org/images/rodel/rodel05.jpg

You can buy them through tirerack.com

Edit: And an M3, 18x10s on the rear.

yeah,
I know,
your right...
actually, we could figure out how to put a Ford oval over it, or paint it blue or black .... ;)

but I'll still know whats under there......

but then again --
I think those FR500's look better on Matt's car --

what do you think?

Aren't the chrome ones about $350?

lots cheaper than Steeda's thats for sure.....

do you know how much the FR500 wheel weighs?

thats the one thing about the ultralite--- it is....

what do you think about the FR500 wheels?

just curious...

spittincobra01
02-21-2003, 01:30 PM
to be honest, I'm not too crazy about them. I like a nice deep dish look, and they kind of remind me of a front wheel drive shallow dish look. I know I'm picky....
