Need4SpeedMotorsports helped me get on the right track in April. What started as firestone fire hawk indy 500’s on cheaper wheels with spacers, lots of stretch and plenty of poke turned into Project6GR 5’s in gloss black on Michelin 4s pilot sports.

285/35R19’s on 19x10’s in front
325/30R19’s on 19x11’s in back

Mounted, balanced with TPS, lug nuts to match, and a little swag to boot.

I get to put them on tomorrow afternoon. Some before-and-after pics too...

These wheels are ridiculous! This is going to change everything about the car.

Happy 4th!

That's the deal right there.
I'm running the same setup on stock GT350 wheels.

A soon as I first saw them installed outside the shop, the whole attitude of the car had changed.

You're gonna love them!

Ugh! I’m at work trying to figure out when today that can happen! Dying to get the car in the air.

Done!

I had to juggle work, getting home and getting started on this, which of course started with me washing the car so I didn't have to do it with the wheels on. I wanted those cleaned before I put them on.

Get the car in the air (thanks Steeda for the rails), get the stock wheels off. I was surprised in the difference in the lug nuts. The stock ones are huge, and they were NOT torqued to 150 ft/lbs. Closer to 90 or so.

I washed/cleaned the new wheels, used some Griott's tire dressing then put them on. Torqued the lugs to 100 ft/lbs after I lowered the car. Inflated them to 34 psi or so.

Miller time.

Last night we put about 30 miles or so on a test drive. I can't believe how much better this car handles with these tires.

It feels like the car is way more stable and solid. Plenty of grip, and there's zero rub, drone at high speeds (reached 80 or so), or any wobble or balance issues. TPS was picked up by the car before I reached the end of the block from my house, so no issues there.

This is the car this morning - a little meguiars quick detailer and we're ready for the 4th.

Looks great! Now just needs less 4x4 to complete it.

They look great. I'm really digging those PP2 style wheels though. By next spring, I'll probably get them with similar tire size to yours.

Yep, at factory ride height it's a bit high.

Problem is that ain't happenin' this year. Budget is GONE. So coil-overs and sway bars are going to be next year at the earliest.

And I have a truck project to fund. Choices choices.

If you like these look up Need4SpeedMotorsports. They're a vendor here at the site. Project6GR wheels. 5/7 spoke configurations in these wheels, and they have a new 10 spoke that's completely different. They sell a LOT of these wheels so they know all of the fitment issues, etc.

Completely transformed your car, looks awesome! I’m on stock 19s right now, I have a set of p51 rims ordered, 2 showed up, 2 are on backorder until mid July. The wait is annoying. Gonna go ahead and lower the car with springs. If I don’t like that I’m gonna get some steeda coilovers or the ford handling track pack.

Looks great. I have the same size 4S tires on MRR M600 wheels. I'm lowered on Sportlines and I have zero complaints.
