My 5 spokes are bent quite badly and a friend of mine has these Ford Racing wheels sitting in his garage for years. He is going to sand blast them for me and sell complete set for $100. I think it's a good deal. My plan is to paint them white to match my white mud flaps :D. What do you think?
I'm absolutely not interested in any other colors, just white.
There is a shopped picture for you:

Thanks. I like them too, especially that they're genuine Ford Racing wheels.
There is a Ford Racing logo on the lip that I might do it in red or black so it pops out a bit

Be careful how those wheels are blasted you could ruin them. I've heard from different people most alloy wheels need to bead blasted. You could call some of your local powdercoat people or media blasting people to find out for sure.

Since people approve it's a done deal. Gonna be picking rims tomorrow. Next weekend I'm gonna paint them white and swap tires from my current rims. Thanks guys! :)

I approve. Do you have center caps for them too? I like the red ford racing on the lip idea too.

They come with 2 center caps. If my SVT caps will not fit them, then I'm gonna make something custom.
