Look for Bullitts, they are close to the Torque Thrust style.

Probably won't find anyone that has the Bullitts in painted centers anymore. I wanted silver with polished lip when I got mine, but now that I have chrome, no way would I want silver, but that is a personal choice, I can understand wanting painted wheels.

I don't like the looks of the spokes on the newer bullitt wheels on the mustangs, but the offset is better for our cars. If I could do it all over again (but I won't be spending that much money again) I would do the hub swap and get Mustang take off wheels.

About 500 in parts, plus brakes and wheels and tires and shiz. It's doable. I plan on doing my car relatively soon.
