Has anyone installed a set of 17 inch styled steel wheels? How do they look on a 65? Any pics you could post would be great. I plan on getting a set but I really want a better idea of what they will look like.
I have the same idea for my 67, but have yet to find anyone who has them on their car. I have many pictures of them, but no test subject. Who are you planning on getting them from? California Pony Cars? or Wheel Vintiques? Just curious, as the wheel vintiques have a more modular cut look to them.
I've seen them on a black fastback. They were interesting but I thought the proportions didn't look good. The center part looked OK, but the spokes just got a long look to them. I wasn't fond of them. I think I have a pic somewhere, I'll see if I can find it.
Kind of like the 17" '66 Shelby 10 spokes. Try finding a photo of them on a car online. I managed to find one photo, and I am glad I did. With the spokes all the way out to the edge of the wheel, it just looks wrong! I wish they had them in 15"
Someone on Mustang Forums or Stangnet got those a little while back. If your into 17s then they look pretty good. I just can't see anything bigger than 16s on our cars. It doesn't look proportional. That said, I'll stick with my 15s.
I plan on getting a set, I am just debating which centercaps to go with on my 67. With the car being Nightmist Blue, the medium blue center cap is a little light, while the black a bit dark. Decisions, decisions......But any pics whatsoever would help cement the choice before dropping $1200-2400 for the wheels.
The BIG style steel wheels on a 66 Mustang cvt, in a California Pony Car ad, featured in Mustang Magazine, are WAY WAY Overstated!!!!! TOO BIG!! Could they be 18's???
Have seen 17" Bullitt wheels oo a 68 fstbk and they good great.
Actually they sell sets of them on ebay for $950 plus $150 shipped and include centercaps & lugs. Not great but not a huge hit either. The wheel vintiques are even worse at $600 each, so $2400 for the set. Too steep for my tastes but I am keeping my options open for wheels up until I have to get them.
Same problem with getting an oversize set of Chrome Magnums. In anything larger that 16", they just start to look slightly deformed...
Much better oversized rims out there..

I actually like how they look on the red coupe. I think the tires are the wrong size. Anyone else with some pics of 17 inch styled steel wheels? I want to see them on a car that does not have the crazy looking side skirting.
