I guess they're okay. Don't forget to add a huge trunk spoiler. Go hydraulics on the suspension while you're at it.

Hey, it's your car. Make it the way you like it. It doesn't really matter if others like it or not, it's not their car. Enjoy it how you want it. BTW, most people on here will probably disagree. That's ok though.

One thing I will caution you on is to think things through and make sure it's what you really want before making the changes or mods. Have a vision, then work to realize that vision.

Actually, I think you may be wasting your talents here. Maybe you should try this:

My 2008 Bullitt had staggered 20's on it when I bought it, rode like a log wagon, the short sidewalls don't have much give, replaced them with original wheels the day I got it home, night and day difference in ride quality.
I liked the way the staggered 20" tires fit in the wheel wells (I didn't much care for the wheel design) but I love to drive it, not just look at it.
If you want to change, it's your call and your car, but consider sticking with an 18" wheel.

I actually have been looking at the Steve McQueen Edition wheels, which are also 20", for my '19 because like the wheels you mention, they have more of the throwback look. There definitely are several considerations with the wheels you mention, one of them being that there are no staggered sizes of them. Secondly, as mentioned above, you do trade off a bit of ride comfort. Third, if you have the MagneRide suspension, that's another things to keep in mind since it was tuned with the staggered 19" setup and the wheel weight in mind. I happen to have the standard suspension, but even going to the 20s, I would have to think really hard about changing them because I like the stock set-up.


Should you change to these wheels, you definitely will achieve the more vintage look. I don't think that's a bad thing!


There is someone who turned his '18 Mustang GT at the Richard Petty Garage into a '19 Bullitt tribute with those wheels. It looks good!
