They’re back, for one last run: The iconic wheel that became a sought-after collectible, this final Limited Edition version may be the best of them all: The wheel NOW sports engraving that salutes our Fiftieth Anniversary, with “FIFTY YEARS” engraved opposite the “SHELBY FORGED” text. These Shelby wheels are the same style, construction, and finish as those previously installed by the Shelby factory on the Shelby GT500 SuperSnake, except for the new engraving. They are the perfect complement to any Shelby or Ford Mustang.

As this is an EXTREMELY limited item, no orders can be accepted once sold out. This is the final run. Preorders are highly recommended. Limit six wheels per single deposit. Delivery in December. As a Limited item, this does NOT qualify for any Team Shelby discounts.

ONLY ONE $500 DEPOSIT IS REQUIRED FOR UP TO 6 WHEELS.



Shelby Forged 20"x9" (front) 24mm offset
(Recommended tire size: 255/35/ZR20)

$564.99
Shelby Forged 20"x10" (rear) 36.7 mm offset
(Recommended tire size: 275/35/ZR20)
$584.99
Notes:
Alcoa DuraBright finish
Engraved "Shelby Forged" and “Fifty Years”
Does not include center caps (see below)

Shelby Store 1-702-405-3500


People with the 2008 Mustang KITT Replica's need to jump on this ASAP!!! Once there gone, it's back to the high prices of Ebay.

Glad to hear that. I didn't mean to scare you about that place but just wanted to let you know. They are going to make your car look sweet... Did you go with the 20X9 all the way around or 20X10 in the rear? COOL!!! another Mustang KITT is on the way to hitting the road!!!

Yes, i will be going for the 20x9 front and 20x10 rear!
I should have all my body parts by the end of the week and then it's off to the spray shop.

I might just do a separate thread showing the build progress, parts, suppliers etc

Hey great to have you back and thanks for the kind words. I will be here to help anyone out. If I have any new idea's I will pass them along. I have a few more things to get done to the car to have it complete and hope to have it done for the World Of Wheels 2013. I realy need to clean the car, been lazy and I need to get off my butt. I'm working on a A/B power source for people that go to Car Shows. Should have it completed soon. I need to just do the rear bumper and the Red inserts. Has anyone installed Carbon Fiber Mirror skull caps? I've had two pair and they fade within 6 months, My car doesn't set out side that much, anyone had another company with good luck?

I was thinking about picking up the skullcaps from Trufiber. I have their hood in carbon fiber and it's holding up well to the Vegas sun. I just replaced my neon dash lights with LED strips and added red ones that can be switched back and forth.

New Fifty year Alcoas are on!! 4 20x9 with 255/35R20 Firehawk Indy 500 wide oval tires. Went right down to Shelby headquarters to pick them up. I wouldn't reccommend cramming 5 20 inch wheels into a Mustang.

That looks incredible.Every time I see a kitt body with karr scanner I know its pure evil incarnate.It has its own identity.Are you planning on getting the bumper?Now that I see the scanner on maybe it doesn't need one.It looks great without it just with the karr scanner.If you don't mind me asking,how much did it all cost?
