Here are some wheels I found from raceline that I really like. They will build your wheels to suit you.Offsets, staggered, color, Size...you name it.they are a two piece wheel and they build them in house to your specs. Not cheap but to get a great customized look this may be the place.Give me your opinions good or bad I can take it...I am aware that Boss and a few other companies make this same wheel but the choices aren't as wide spread as with this company.

I don't think I would ever do any of the colored wheels on a bullitt either but for someone with a HG B it may be cool for them. They say you can pick what you want painted Polished or they offer flat finishes if you dont want the shine.

Those look OK. If I were going to change wheels just for looks though (I wouldn't), I still like one of my old favorites...



I don't know what they weigh, and they're likely a bit heavy. Centerlines sure remind me of the muscle car era I grew up in, and I think they'd look fantastic on a Bullitt.

That last one is pretty nice, kinda looks like the Shelby Redline wheel by American Racing. The Redline is probably much cheaper of an option, have you checked those out yet?

Personally, I think the stock wheels of the Bullitt are some of the finest looking wheels out there and one of the many reasons I fell for the Bullitt. I don't think there's a better looking or more appropriate wheel for the car. Why are you considering the change- performance reasons or appearance alone?

Hi Guys,
Wheels with a touch of HG could be quite impressive.

If performance is one of your goals, be sure to check out the weight of your new wheels. They should be lighter than stock.

+1. I agree that the stock wheel is perfect. If I get wider wheels, they will have to match the stock wheel which most likely means having them custom painted as no seems to make a wider Bullitt wheel that matches the color of the 08/09 vehicles.

I am looking to change just for looks alone but I would deffinately check the weights. My B is black but it may be cool to do some like the red and black only in HG and black with a polished lip. I looked at the redlines and they are pretty much the same wheel as is the boss 336 I believe. The only thing I like about these more is the wide variety of offsets.Looking at a 20 by 10 in the rear and 20 by 9 in the front.I understand the purist point of view with the bullitt wheels I just think ford used these wheels way too much. I know the B's are a little different than the rest But they are very similar. I will keep my stockers in the garage put away and safe should I choose to return 3478 to stock.I havent decided on wheels yet, sooo much out there.

I know what you mean and agree that the torque thruster style wheel has been overused. I, too, have been looking for an appropriate replacement wheel, but have decided to keep the stock Bullitt wheels to mount my NITTO Invo 255/45/18's all around.

Until I find just the right wheel that looks right to me, I'll keep looking! I prefer a dark finish in the center of the wheel to compliment the HG color.

Good luck on your search! :cool:
