Wanted more "meat" on the rear

Hi guys, I know the purists won't like this but I wanted wider tires on the back of my 2012 GT/CS and Ford isn't offering a wider GT/CS rim for the back side so, since I love chrome I've decided to go with the Steeda chrome Spyders on my black GT/CS, can't wait to put the new rubber on these wheels

Those should look good on your black car. What size are they? And what size tires do you plan to use? Have you done any suspension mods yet?

HP numbers are good and all, but they're like asking someone how much they can bench. What difference does it make, if I can still kick your ass.

No suspension mods yet, my wife didn't enjoy the "Go Kart" feeling of my 2003... The front wheels are 20 x 9.5 with 255/35/20 Nitto Invo and the back will be 20 x 11 with 295/35/20 with the same Nitto Invo, I'll be receiving the rubber in the next week or so

I'm not really a fan of the 20" wheels, but those should look good. IMHO, these cars need to be lowered in the rear. I used BMR lowering springs and Tokico adjustable shocks. You can dial them in to be just as soft as stock or firm them up for more spirited driving when you want.

Looks good. Mine also has chrome wheels (American Muscle 18") on my Performance White 09. To be honest, they were on it when I bought it, but I'm also a big fan of the chrome wheel look!
