    What do you 50 Year LE owners think of Ford reusing the LE wheels on the 2020 Ecoboost High Performance package ?

    It’s not the first time. The same wheels have been used on other Mustangs in either all black or bright silver. On those cars, though, they seem to be 9” all around, rather than the staggered setup of our cars.

    However, from the way this photo looks on my phone screen, it looks like it’s painted the same as ours.

    I didn’t care for the wheel being used with other paint jobs, but didn’t think it was a big deal to complain about. But if they’re being reused in the same paint job, then yeah I’m a bit upset about that.

    Exactly what I would expect from a parts bin package...

    The one above isn't a 9" wheel though. It's a. 8.5" off the front of LE also. See the stem placement? On the rears, it's in the large opening between the split spokes. That one is in the small opening of the split.

    The 50 LE is 9” in front, 9.5” in the rear.

    Bleh. You're right.

    The above is a 9" though. Have to see the rear to see if it's staggered or not. Same reasons I stayed above but was shifted .5" down the ruler. Lol.
