Im iffy on the rims, but i love the colour of the car.

I think a set of black ones in that style would have suited it better personally, but thats just MO.

Looks awesome, and I love the color as well. I have the rare pearl white from the factory. Just out my wheels on last week, we both have very similar birds. I also have the clear corner lights and the 4.6 badges. Btw when you remove the original V8 emblem is there a hole behind it?

no there is no hole, the only badge that has holes behind it is the ford emblem on the trunk two small holes that you could easily fill in

I cant remember the website, im pretty sure I got them from discount wheels, I bought them from my brother which he paid $250 a rim, and $150 a tire, so a total of $1600, and I bought them from my brother for $400, anybody have any suggestions on what I should lower it with? does anybody that has lowered their car prefer a certain setup or anything?

did you have to get an adapter plate for the bolt pattern?? because the only ones like yours i could find were to fit a mustang lug pattern witch is 5x114.3 (4.5") and our thunderbirds are 5.108
