Thought they hit my like meter. Got Bronze 10th Anniversary wheels on my 40 Anniversary GT Convertible. One sharp looking wheel on the right car. Especially your Cat.

Finally got our "Diamond In The Rough" looking a little bit polished. Still need to do some work at some point but our Father/Son project is much more presentable now. Wheels and trunk lid change has made a huge improvement over the factory senior citizen look.

Wheels Info

Are those Verde Kaos V55 wheels on the T-Bird? Love the dark green and dark blue colors on the '96/97 T-birds and Cougars. What size are the wheels? I went with 18's and running a 245/45/18 tire and have no clearance issues but concerned how much of a drop I can do without any clearance issues.

Yes, they are Verde Kaos with a silver finish. I went with 18's and a 255/40/18 Continental Extreme Contact DWS tire. It's lowered about 1.6" front and rear with no clearance issues.

I wanted a set of 20" wheels but I like having a smoother ride and a bit more sidewall since my T-Bird is supercharged.

I like the dark blue Cougars the best but the dark green Cougars/T-Bird's are my second favorite. I've got a blue '96 Cougar, too. :grin2:

Yep! Still the original paint. It has held up pretty well, but she's due for a touch up at the body shop to get all the years of small dings and scratches out. Holding off on that though until I finish a few things, no point in painting it only to be leaning over the fenders and scratching it again.

Thanks! In the next coming weeks, she'll be out of commission for a while, need to rebuild the rear end and ditch all the original bushings. The traction just isn't there anymore from the worn toe compensators.
