2011 Ford Mustang GT 5.0: I Want The V6 Wheels

March 03, 2011

Our 2011 long-term Ford Mustang GT 5.0 is a terrific all-around muscle car. And as good as the V6 version is, the GT is better...because it has a 5.0 V8!

So why in the world would anyone want the V6? For the wheels, of course. (Yes, I am completely dismissing fuel economy, torque, and cost from this discussion.)

I loves the wheels on the V6 Mustang (pictured above.) To me they are the best looking factory wheels (on any car!) I can remember. And they come in 19"diameter with the same 255/40R19 sized tires as on our long-term GT.

I checked the Ford website and order guide. Apparently you can't get the V6 wheels on the GT 5.0, so you would have to do a dealer swap, or order a separare set.

Too bad.
