New Wheels

By 007_SuperCoupe

Filed under: 1992 Ford Thunderbird (Silver Thunder)

Well, I haven't actually purchased them yet, but I have decided on a new set of wheels for my Super Coupe. Yes, they are the wheels pictured here. I'm planning on getting the 18 x 8.5 for the fronts and 18 x 9.5 for the rear, chromed, of course. They have a very significant (and in my opinion, very nice) lip on the wheel. I have always liked that. The original wheels I wanted to purchase were manufactured by Zenetti and cost $100 per wheel more than these do. And, they are discontinued as well. These are the only other wheels that immediately jumped out at me. So I'm not going to sit on them at all. They are manufactured by Ruff Racing and are the R930 wheel. They are brand new wheels, so they should be around for a few years at least. I don't plan on waiting that long though and will get them next year sometime. Tires will have to wait, just because of the price involved in wheels and tires. The tires cost almost as much as the wheels which puts the overall purchase over $2k when it's all said and done. I just can't wait to get the wheels...even if they sit in my garage for a year!

Just to clarify...the price I listed is for each wheel, not both for front/rear.

They run $260 for the fronts and $270 for the rears, assuming there aren't any issues with rubbing with a 275 tire out back with the offset of these rims. If there's an issue, then I'll stick with the same wheels as the front. Those prices are shipped in the lower 48...not sure what they'd run to get them to you though.
