sailor FWIW, don't pass on the 6 spoke SVT wheels if you find some - i was looking for 5 spokes or the EAP style but 6 spokes popped up locally first. The style grows on ya, and it's not as common as the others!

Thanks!

Ordered the Ebrake from ebay. I'm trying to find a set of svt wheels for the car... I need new tires especially for the winter. They are terrible...

I'm just not sure what wheels would look best on the car. The EAP Euros, the 5 spoke, or the 6 spoke? Meh.... I can't seem to find a decent set either anywhere.

I don;t want to buy new either. To much $.

1 of my current wheels has some rash and gives me vibration in the steering wheel.

It's always something.

Added you to my contact/ friend list too buddy.

SilverST05 Well, good luck with that, I know how hard that can be, now my troubles seem insignificant comparably. :) Just dealing with too much debt (my fault) and a growing family. Needed a bigger house and the only way was to sell the stang. It hurt. But it was for the better.
Also owned 92 LX and a 94 GT stangs.

This is just my daily driver.

thanks guys
I'm getting around 21-24 mpg depending on how aggressive I drive. I think that's about the same per tank your getting. It's my DD too. It's a lot more fun of a commute than my 99 Taurus SE I traded in on it about a year ago. I have just over 95,000 miles on it. I did the Stealth Cold air intake. I plan on purchasing an aftermarket kit sometime. I have not done a "tune" on it. Don't really have the cash to put down for that. Not sure I really need it right now.
I'm working more on aesthetics. I tinted lenses, painted my grill and lower grill black and need to fix the rusty rocker panels. The winters here in Iowa can be harsh. And whoever had it before didn't pay much attention to keeping the salt off.
