Hello - So basically yeah looking at these wheels. Does anyone have them, and have pictures to share? :)
Having a hard time finding people running them, (really any) though people don't normally tag their wheels all the time in social media. lol

Have this thread here: https://www.mustang6g.com/forums/threads/shelby-cs-14-cs5-questions.134774/#post-2821673 But that's most of what I've found really. There's a forged variant for the 350 folks that looks great also. Do see those around online more often, and based on what I've seen of those the styling is similar to be basically the same? At least almost.

But yeah, if you have them I'd love to see them! :like:

Thanks!

Update: I've found that these appear to have just come out basically. Well anyway, still valid post. lol

Update 2: Welp, I pulled the trigger and ordered them, so I'll have pics to put here someday soon-ish.

Selecting a wheel set is very challenging for me... I am having a really hard time choosing my next set. I like the CS-5s a lot... considering them in gloss black on a Ruby Red vert... also considering Ford Performance PP2, the Project 6GR 10s, Shelby CS11, and SP2 (if they ever get in stock).

Update: I pulled the trigger on the CS5s in gloss black. After reflection, these are a great option for a light-weight, 19inch. They have enough meat on the pokes to be visible, and they match the look of the Shelby Forged GT350 wheel. Also, being brand-new, should be unique on the road! I will update this thread when I receive them, then get them installed.

I may have gone with the SVE SP2s, but no stock until September (unreal). I don't want to miss the Summer in 2020. Also got some extra time on my hands with quarantine.

What size tires did you go with?
Those are the stock Michelin Sport 4s, the 275s just fit the 11 inch wide rears. Looking for tires, right now, the Nitto NT555 G2s at 305/35 19.

I think a pair of Michelin Sport 4s 305/40 19 would be about the same, better ride maybe.

If I did not have my Gunmetal Shelby Venom set, I would have perhaps sported a set of the gunmetal CS-5 if they were available back then, before CS wheels was pretty much 20" stuff only, and I wanted to stick to 19" Interesting how the website still does not filter any 19" on the drop down. They remind me a little of Dodge Widebody Devil Rims.

better price plus more color choices for us regular S550 folks with our version of the CS-21 series.

One thing I never understood was Shelby Wheels never bother to factory match to the Mustang hub bore size, thought they were dedicated for the Mustang? Still got to get hub rings just to be safe, even they are not shipped with Shelby wheels and say no need for them. CS5 come with a 73mm hub, my (forgestar/weld racing sourced) shelby wheels came with 72.6mm. so I got some aluminum rings off ebay to reduce any possible chance of vibration.

Well - I have an update, and with absolutely no regrets. The wider wheels really made this car feel and look a whole lot better. Swapping back on the stock wheels this winter 2020 will really look weird.
These are gloss black:
19" X 9.5"/ 19" X 11"
275/40-19 / 305/35-19

No lowering or anything has been done also!

Just curious, are the wheel caps o-ring?

I have a question here. So... if I want to use Ford “Pony” Center caps, are you suggesting that I can get a sizer ring to make it fit on a Shelby wheel?

No I mean the hub centric rings, those go on the hub before applying the wheel to eliminate the wheel hub gap and help center it before lugs. nothing to do with the outer hole where cap goes.

You place a factory Mustang wheel on your hub and it fits like a glove, but when you place some Shelby Wheel Company Wheels on the hub, you can wiggle the wheel around before tightening the bolts since the wheel hole is like 3mm wider, so you insert a hub ring to close the gap.
