Quick question on the Alcoa Rims. I have the 20x10 for the rear but it doesn t look like theres alot of room for them. It looks like they would rub up against the rear shocks! Do the 20x10s fit the rear with no modifications? I have read that there is a 35mm off set but don t know if that pushes the rim further inward or does it make the rim stick out a little from the quarter pannel. I have compared my 20x9s and 20x10s and the rears are obviously wider but Im worried if any rubbing will happen. I have a 07 Mustang GT thats NOT lowered or Modified in any way. :kitt:

I have the 20X10 in the rear and 20X9 in the front and have never had a problem with rub. They have been on the car for a year now and still look the way they did the day I got them.

That's the one part that sucks. As soon as I had the money to get the wheels, they discontinued them...

I talked to them in person right after I moved here. They said no in a very snotty manner. Apparantly, they frown on building Shelby clones, even while making a quick buck doing it. They had one (without the Super Snake script) sitting in the showroom when I asked.

I feel like I'd be more successful finding turbocast wheels with bowling ball hubcaps. I even tried finding black wheels since the 2012 and 50th Anniversary Super Snake is still fitted with them.

I will try to find out who you can talk to there, I was told no but Alcoa gave me a contact person and she was great. I want to say her name was April.

I had to go to Ford for them to recalibrate my tps sensors

otherwise I couldnt get rid of the error

Im sure any mechanic can recalibrate if they have the correct tool.

No, I purchased the tire/rim package so it came with their own TMPS

Thank you Sir! I hope they have a few spares sitting around. And somehow, I may have received a blessing to get a set from the wife. She realized how ugly my wheels are after a walk through Shelby's Headquarters.

I would love the alcoa rims. But they were discontinued after I got my car. So I went in Search of aftermarket rims and I found some called Lorenzo WL032 rims. They look just like the alcoas but the width goes in halfs. And I'm getting all four wheels and tires for $2,300. Just saying you should take a look at em.

Thanks for the advise. They do look close, I've also looked at Forgestar CF10 wheels. They look similar as well.
