I wonder if the Gunmetal ones here would not be closer to the purist version than the Chrome Powder ones you posted?

Either way, I love them. Far better than the stock black.

More so though, I love the centre cap! Any clue where to find those? I found the wheels easy enough and thought the pricing was pretty decent.

These are definitely a nice alternative to the OEM 19s, regardless of the finish. My personal favorite remains the Steve McQueen Edition wheels. I've learned Steeda will offer a 20" version that is close to but not exactly styled like the wheels that come with that package. I haven't seen a photo yet. I misunderstood from a few months ago that those 20s would be available.


Personally, I would love a 19" version in the OEM tire size that looks like the Steve McQueen Edition wheels. However, regardless of which style is one's favorite, the Shelby wheels were a smart take on stock.

Those gunmetal finish wheels are great.

The black wheels are awful. Haven't ever liked those from day one.

The black wheels have grown on me but I do like those gunmetal CS11s. I just wish they came in the stock 19” size as well. I’m not a fan of 20” wheels and I don’t understand the fascination with 20’s. They certainly add weight and that# bad for performance, not the direction I want to be headed in.

I wonder what the wheel weight of the CS11 is vs the stock 19” Bullitt wheel? Does anyone know what our stock wheels weigh?

The only advantage the 20’s have is the tires are 1-2 lbs less per tire compared to the stock 19” sizes.

Yeah, those 20's are too big. Looks like a Donk, and I'm sure handles and accelerates like total garbage compared to something more reasonable in size.

Great for your garage-queen show car, but no good for driving like it's meant to be driven.

First, this is my opinion only and I understand it is different then a lot of others in this discussion but I like the Black Wheels MUCH better then the chrome wheels. Overall, I like the Dark Gray, like the 08/09 wheels best but still like the black on the '19. Me personally, I would keep the stock wheels over most of the other ones that have been shown on this discussion. When it comes to 20s, I have seen a few that I like that do not look too big but most just appear way too big for a Mustang. OK for an SUV but not a pony car.

Just my 2cent worth (worth less than a penny these days).

I think for bigger power levels, having more width would be beneficial. It will be interesting to see what owners of the Steve McQueen Special Edition say about the larger wheel/tire set. For corner handling, the added unsprung mass might be less beneficial, but I wouldn't go as far as to say "handle like garbage." After all, the upcoming GT500 will be on 20" wheels, although undergo some optimization in the suspension -



https://www.caranddriver.com/ford/mustang-shelby-gt500

"Ford is adamant that, unlike previous iterations, this GT500 will go left and right just as well as it proceeds in a straight line. Using the brilliant-handling GT350 as a basis for the big-power car is a good start. It will carry the same basic strut front and multilink rear suspensions as the GT350. But in addition to using stiffer springs, fatter anti-roll bars, and retuned magnetorheological dampers, the GT500's front suspension has revised geometry aimed at reducing the tramlining that's omnipresent in the GT350—we expect that the GT350 will also receive this modification soon. The increased stiffness helps to manage the GT500's greater mass compared with the GT350 and the increased unsprung weight of the standard 20-inch wheel-and-tire package. The standard wheels are aluminum and wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport 4S summer tires, sized 305/30ZR-20 in front and 315/30ZR-20 in the rear"

As you may recall, the S197 Saleens had 20 inch wheels and looked quite nice, and IMO didn't look like donks. As I further recall, those cars were built for handling rather than straight line speed, and were well regarded by many. Just a thought.

The 20" wheels look nice and will handle OK. You will tend to lose some ride comfort and if you live in a city with bad pot holes, you increase your chances of wheel damage. Weight is a factor of material as well as size. If you have a forged or spun cast wheel you will save as much as 10 pounds per wheel. Cast wheels weigh more, as much as 25% or more. Any time you can reduce unsprung weight the car will brake better, the suspension will react faster, and you will get a little better acceleration.
We used to run BBS forged wheels on the 2011 Coyote, 18"X 9.5" and just over 20 pounds. They were about $800 CAD. The stock cast wheels weighed around 30 pounds. We ran Nitto DOT R compound tires 275/40/18. Awesome grip but noisy.
An American Racing 20"X 10" Torque thrust wheel is just over 31#. $220

GT500 20's are CF and weigh the same as the 19's from the 350R.
