Nope think the Ford lug is a much classier piece. Like the peek in the crown, and the definition of the lug points. Those gorillas are just plane & lack styling .

We have a yearly property tax on cars here in SC as well. My 19' GT/CS is $324 for 2022. My wife's new Volvo is $563. Even when added to my homes property tax I'm still paying 1/10 of what I paid in NJ. In addition sales tax on cars is capped at $500.
Wait, what?!? Annual “property tax” on cars? How is that justifiable? Does the tax go down as the car depreciates? What if you keep the car for 10-20 years - you’d be paying more in “car taxes” than what the car was worth. Explain more please…. I’ve never heard of that, so I’m intrigued to know more. :)

I mean. I usually swap out the cleanable filters too instead of cleaning them. But the dry one this time might meet my air compressor, who knows. Hopefully before it needs cleaning I’ll be throwing on the power pack kit from Ford Performance anyway. Link to reusable cabin filter? Thank you! I love the color in the sun!
Here you go...also you can order them at O'Reilly auto parts https://www.americanmuscle.com/k-n-cabin-air-filter-1518.html?utm_content=Intake - Replacement Filter|K&N&T5_Var4=405188&utm_source=google-pla&utm_medium=shopping&T5_Var2=shopping&utm_campaign=AMM+Mustang+Vehicle+Medium+RLSA&T5_Var3=blue&intl=0&dialogtech=ppc&gclid=Cj0KCQjwvaeJBhCvARIsABgTDM5XA0DMofixLaf15wjWjts0wLglc2r9xccTDUt1ibZWctfUT7I_PaAaAgNLEALw_wcB&gclsrc=aw.ds

Mine was gone way too early. I got rear ended in 2004 at 50mph while stopped on highway. I was behind an accident and managed to stop and avoid it but knuckle head behind me wasn’t paying attention. Hit me square in trunk and pushed me against divider and into car in fro of me.

Sucks that happened. However, I can't help but wonder if that red toolbox has the "ultimate set of tools". :p

justifiable? RU kidding me? You pay annual property tax on your house, and the tax amount (if not rates) goes up every year or so does it not? Cars are durable consumer goods and thus property. And what gov't ever said No to the opportunity to abrogate to itself YOUR wealth at every contrived opportunity?

Yes the assessed value of the car goes down every year. FFX county "generously" reduced my faxes by about a third on my 2020 F150 so the bill is only $1300 instead of $1700. The bill for the Camaro for 6mo worth of ownership was only $400. And the Mustang would normally be 1200/yr but they were feeling magnanimous this year and it's only $800. I've got the stack of bills literally sitting beside me.

Note the 'local registration fee' is a total fraud. It has nothing to do with my car being registered with the State-level DMV or paying for plates. Some quick napkin math shows the county is assessing 4.5% annually.

Ford lugs are 2 piece they are complete junk vs gorilla lugs. They tend to split if you happened to over torque them. Known problem. Look it up.

Guess I 'll shit can them, now that I have recieved this expert advice.

I'm sure you know what's best for me.

The thinking here is problematic for the users. Counting the Ford shitty lug nuts that are in service. Then subtracting the half whit's that use impacts or an incorrect sized sockets on them. I must conclude that sort of points to the users.

Nice Lugs , classy in every way, I'll gladly keep them .

Rock on
