I went a little large with the rear but I think it turned out nice, DSG is the best color.

18" 03/04 Cobra replica's look good on any Terminator.

Good luck finding some new 18x10.5's

Wheels

Agree......stick with the OEM style but up it to 18's. I just went through the same process as what you are doing. I have a DSG Vert......I looked at every wheel out there.....Ford did this right on our Cobras.

I am having 18x11's made for my rear and 18x9's in the front.

In about 2 weeks I will have a set of 17x9 fronts and 17x10.5 rear Chromes for sale.

The fronts have brand new Michelin Pilot Sports 275's with less than 500 miles on them.....the rears have M and H Drag Radials....325/45/17's also with about 500 miles on them.

Question, how much are you asking for the 17x10.5?

Andy,

DSG = Dark Shadow Grey

It's a darker Grey than the Mineral Grey color. It was only produced in 2003 and had the following production numbers:

Coupes = 851
Convertibles = 446
