This set comes with the Sumitomo tires.
ITEM DESCRIPTION: This is a set of four brand-new MAC BLACK Machined face (with BLACK cutouts) replica 03 COBRA style rims, AFS center caps and SUMITOMO tires.
WHAT THEY WILL FIT: They will fit the 1994 - 2004 Ford Mustangs, all models. Sorry, they will not work on the '99-'04 Cobra Mustangs that have IRS without some slight modifications.
SIZE AND SPECIFICATIONS: 5-lug (5X4½). We have combined two different sizes on this auction. For the front are two 17" x 9", +26mm offset wheels. For the rear are two WIDE 17" x 10.5" wheels. The back wheels are +27mm offset.
We love these HUGE 17x10.5 rims on the back of the Mustang. They fill up the wheel well, come out flush with the fenders and simply look hot! Sorry, they will not work on the earlier Mustangs without modifications.
ABOUT THE FINISH: These brand-new MAC BLACK FINISH rims are beautiful. They have a machined face with black inserts. The machined face and cut-outs have been topped off with a clear coat to further protect the rims and make them very easy to maintain. Just wash them with the same mild detergent you would use on your waxed car, dry and you are done! Please note these are NOT blemished wheels. These wheels are beautiful and would certainly give your Mustang a whole new look.
TIRE INFORMATION: We have mounted and balanced a set of Sumitomo HTRZ tires on the wheels. The front tires are 275/40/17 and the rear tires are 315/35/17. The ratings are 360 AA. We use the Hunter Vibration Control System for balancing.
ABOUT THE BALANCING: The tires have been mounted and then balanced on the latest Hunter GSP 9700 Vibration Control System. It actually does a simulated road test on both the wheel and tire. You cant get a better balance job, period! If you are not familiar with how important it is to use this method of balancing your tires, please see info link below. Don't accept an inferior balance job from outdated equipment.
Please note: Because this tire size is larger than the original factory size, you may want to have your computer calibrated to the new tire size to ensure your speedometer is accurate.
QUALITY: All AFS wheels are DOT approved! The rims are structurally sound. We guarantee the rims to be straight, true and not out of round.

TECH TALK on the Hunter GSP9700 Wheel Balancer with an explanation as to why this balancing method is so important.
The NEW Hunter GSP9700 extends far beyond traditional functions of a wheel balancer. Balancing is only a small fraction of its capabilities. The GSP9700 simulates a "road test" without any extra work. The unique "road roller" measures uniformity of the wheel and tire under load, verifying if the assembly is round when rolling. Computer diagnosis and adjustment insures a "new car ride feel" never before available except for use by industrial OE manufacturers paying hundreds of thousands of dollars.
The GSP9700 is a Vibration Control System. It allows us to eliminate virtually every variable causing vibration in relation to the tire and rim, except vehicle related problems. Wheel Force Variation: A perfectly balanced tire can still vibrate due to Force Variation. Wheel Force Variation is most frequently due to wheel runout or uneven tread or sidewall stiffness in the tire. Runout is when a tire or rim is out of round when rolling. Frequent causes are a bent rim or uneven tire wear. Uneven tread or sidewall stiffness can be found in NEW or worn tires. Tires by design are never uniformly flexible throughout nor are they perfectly round. And no two tires are exactly alike in these characteristics.
Force Variation (Tire Uniformity) - Radial force variation is the amount of change in stiffness of the sidewall and footprint when a load is placed against the tire. To understand the effects of radial force variation, imagine the tire as a collection of springs between the rim and the tire tread. If the "springs" are not of uniform stiffness, a varied force is exerted on the axle as the tire rotates and flexes. This creates a vibration in the vehicle. There are specifications and acceptable limits from tire manufacturers. Up until now, force variation has been measured only by OEM's in an industrial setting using equipment in the range of half a million dollars. For example, a tire and rim could be perfectly round when measured with a dial indicator (free runout) and the wheel will still vibrate when driven due to excessive force variation.
Many tires on the market today have a "paint dot" or mark on the tire that indicates either the high side or low side of force variation. Many have attempted to solve vibration problems by blindly' lining up the dot' with the valve stem. The operator assumes the "dot" is the high point of radial force of the tire and the wheel valve stem hole is the low point of runout of the rim. Unfortunately this is not always true. Many tires are not marked and many wheel manufacturers do not use the valve stem as the low point. Other OEM's use the marks to indicate high points instead of low points!
The GSP9700 eliminates any guesswork. The locations of runout and tire force are quickly located and measured. At 60 miles per hour an average size tire rotates 850 times per minute. (*Rotation for smaller tires is slightly faster; for larger tires it is slightly slower.) At this speed slight variations in balance, sidewall stiffness or roundness can cause the wheel to literally slam into the pavement 14 times a second. When getting new wheels and tires for your vehicle it is so important that they are balanced properly with the latest equipment!
Why spend all that money for the new wheels and/or tires and then take a shortcut on the balancing. Your safety, comfort and quality of the ride are on the line.
