Is there anybody out here that can photochop these wheels on a black thunderbird to see how they would look?

Can you verify that the last wheel (SILVER PAINTED FINISH CobraR 18X9) is silver and not chrome? It looks pretty shiny in the pic you provided.

That pic is obviously chrome. He probably didn't have a pic of the painted wheel yet and put the chrome pic there as a representation of the style provided. That's what I assume anyway.

Mike is SPOT ON...I don't have a silver finish pic. If anyone has one or finds one I could use it...


YES it IS going to be a SILVER PAINTED WHEEL...

i just wanted to make sure that you would have them, because I may not be able to afford it for a couple months. also, are the gunmetal ones a matte finish? and do you have a site, or where do we order when the time comes?

thanks,

steve

That wheel has a sandblasted finish. So its a rough matte finish and the actual color is a bit lighter than in the picture.

When you are ready to order just contact our [email protected] We have a website but it is not setup for point of sale.

I have wheels in 17"...AND I have the 03-04 SVT Cobra wheels as well in 17X9 in the tbird bolt pattern.

BTW...An 18" tire does not have to be a rubberband as you call it...Its not even close to being a rubber band looking sidewall. The 245-45-18 has the same sidewall as a 255-45-17 does. The 255-45-18 has even more sidewall yet.

They don't fit in the front, Cudaz only sells wheels that fit for the rear of our cars. You will have to find other wheels for the front.

I doubt it...The cast tooling won't work in the center section using our wheel specs for reasons that were not exact or clear to me other than it was a safety issue. Thats well enough reason for me.

There are some new things coming around the bend though.

They look good on there...Just use the NEXT Wheels software linked on the frontpage of our website and you can load them up on a Coug or Tbird to see for yourself. Just use the OE Relpica wheels in that database.

So I start going through checking the finish on these wheels that arrived because one guy called me and said that he really liked the finish but that they were not quite silver in color...So....I go take a look and this is what I found...heh




Yep..Gunmetal Grey...heh....I like them and they are differant too.
