    I'd be very interested unless they were outrageous.

    I think you would have a better chance of getting Alcoa to sell the design than having them tool up a line again to sell a niche product at best.

    I'd get a spare or two if they made another run. I posted up in the forum.

    Id get another pair and I am sure others would as well if they would fix the back space on the 10's so you could run a 305/30/20.

    ^^^ I ran 305/35/20's on mine zero rubbing or any issues...i had a panhard bar and had my rearend perfectly centered....its damn close to rubbing and im sure if i put 4 people in the car and a full trunk the car would eat the rear tire up but i dont usually have anyone in the rear at all and i just keep the trunk as empty as possible....

    I just widened mine to 11.75 and went with a 315. The 10's will be up front with a 275 :pepper:

    Good choice 335s were a headache for me and after having inner tire gouged from bump stop bracket on frame of car. Swapped them for 325s and no issues. Super close tho even after removing brackets and other parts.

    I'd sell my Steeda Spyders in a heart beat if I could get a set of Alcoas! Best looking wheel for a Mustang IMHO.

    Yeah, I'm glad the guy with the 335's for sale here stood me up and someone else bought them.

    I think the height is the issue there... but I don't think anyone makes a 305/30 do they?

    I'm a little surprised a company hasn't made a knock off yet. I'd buy a set in a minute if they were under $1500.

    Is the durabright a polished aluminum wheel that is clear coated like on my F250 20's?

    For those who had them widened, did you remove the bump stop bracket that is welded to the inner fenderwell to make them fit?

    Yes, but I went 11.75. Depends on how wide you go.
