Had me stressing when I first counted those stars, Matt. Lmao
I'm surprised they're +35 for the 05-09 , that's the year range mine are for and besides the spoke style should be basically the same wheel.Looks great. I was just looking for giggles today, for 18*9/10 saleens and it looks like they only make the 9's now. They do have the FR500 style but the 10" were 35 offset for 2005-9 stang. Those were my 2 top choices, so back to the drawing board
Chatter is the word I was looking for! I had on the tip of my tongue! That’s exactly it, it doesn’t do it until the very tail end of the stop or if I’m creeping on the brakes at under 10 mph, in my case all I did was swap the tires/wheels, suspension and brakes hadn’t been touched in months. I’m not particularly concerned over it now that I looked everything over and did everything I could to try to solve it, but it is an offputting thing nonethelessLooks great! IMO the stance is perfect now, it looked too low in the front with the other springs. Not really a fan of those style wheels. But your Cougar can pull them off given its mods and muscle car style. Cars need to have some balls to run those wheels.... It looks tough!
Strange that you mention the brake roughness at low speeds. Mine is doing the exact same thing after I redid the front end and replaced the front brakes. I have no idea what it is; only happens at low speeds and is almost like a slight chatter when coming to a stop. My only thought is the new brake pads. Never had this happen before though?
Indubitably! Don’t ask me to ship them though lolSo what you're saying is that you have a set of wheels for sale?
Positive, plus I coat the back of rotors with antisieze so they don’t rust togetherAre you sure you got the disks fully seated on the hubs? I had a bit of rust on the hub cause a similar sound; it wasn't much rust. I put the sound down to the metal "wear indicator/pad springs" moving around.
What I love about the hub swap is you can find decent deals and outright bargains from Mustang guys like I did, the only set of wheels and tires I bought brand new had mounted and balanced for the Cougar were the 10th anniversaries/BFGs, after those the 20" AMRs were open box discounted, the 2014 track packs were a partial trade from those with cash on top, and the Bullitts the owner bought a newer Mustang and these couldn't physically transfer over due to the brakes. I roll my eyes whenever anyone refers to a car mod as an investment, but that hub swap allowed me to not have to spend more than $900 on a set of wheels/tires when I want or need new ones. Sell the old set, even if I price them to sell, the net expenses have been real lowThose wheels in chrome are what I've wanted for the black car. Everything I see is way over my budget.
