  1. Yep. WORK wheels aren't cheap, that's for sure. I wanted a top quality wheel and had no idea about WORK until RavSpec posted his new vendor thread on Mustang 6G
  2. I am beyond excited as well. It will feel like Chirstmas in June or July I would too. I will likely end up with another set for track duty, just not sure what that would entail right now. I am going to sell my PP wheels as I don't want to store them right now and I don't see doing any track days for another year at least.
  3. 18's on this bodystyle is a no go unless I was racing the car, which I am not. There is one '15 GT PP that has 18's (18x11's or 12's at all 4 corners) but it is solely for racing. 19's look good to but for my needs and use of this car 20's will be perfect for me . It took me 8 freaking months to figure out what wheels I wanted for this car. When I found out that WORK was moving into the domestic muscle/pony car market, I jumped first. These are the first set of wheels they are buidling for a 2015 Mustang GT PP car. Amen to that. 18's do look out of place for a non-racing S550. These wheels will weight between 6-7lbs lighter vs. stock 19" PP wheels. I will get a nice weight savings just from the wheels. I believe the tires will save me 2-3 lbs total as well. My car will see about 5k miles a year and nothing more. LOL! Yeah, I love those caliper covers. The brakes are big when looking thru the wheel but when you have the wheels off, you truly see how big these 6pot Brembo's are. Both in height and width. No wonder they stop like they do after being beating on. I love the monoblock as well. Yep. I wanted a loaded car. Came with everything but the 50th AP. It is a great car to go on long, long cruises, 1000 miles drives or burning up back roads or taking it to the track. I can enjoy it no matter where I drive it. I am having a professional photo shot done when the wheels/tires arrive. I will be sending the pictures to WORK and RavSpec to be put in their print media both here and over in Japan. Hopefully lots of folks hop on those WORK wheels. Their quality and build process is amazing. I am beyond impressed. I was torn between 19's and 20's but decided on 20's based on all the aftermarket wheels pictures/combos that have been posted. I don't think I will see any performance degredation in my cornering on the street by running 20's. I will have a ton of tire contact patch up front and in the rear. I am looking forward to getting everything to see how it handles with all the Steeda stuff I had put on. Thanks! My wheels or the wheels on the Blue S550?
  4. Thank you! Thanks buddy! I have great roads where I am at in North GA. I have some killer back roads just a few minutes from my house. I actually did a nice run last Friday around lunch time and finally got to push my car. The handling it much, much improved. It corners so flat, brake dive is 90-95% gone. The turn-in is instantaneous and I really mean that. I thought the turn-in was really good for a stock car but it is leaps and bounds better now. In all honesty, to truly push the car to my driving limits, I will have to take it to the track because of the speed I can carry in turns. This backroad I was running close to 90mph and it had plenty left. Really scared me that it was just begging for more speed. I took a roundabout late Saturday night at 37-40mph and the car was just flat as can be. I cannot wait to get my 285/305 R-S3's and see how much they improve handling. Thanks!
  5. More pictures of the goodies, alignment before and after and profile pictures.
  6. Guess it is time to get my build thread going. My car was ordered on 5/21/2014 and was built on 11/24/2014. I ordered it through Jeff Greenly @Yocum Ford in Lansdale, PA. This was the best new car buying experience of my life, bar none. Jeff is the ultimate Mustang and Ford performance car nut you will ever find. Sticker price was $45,885. I got x-plan pricing for $42,965.27. At the time of pickup, I received $2250 in rebates. That is a total of $5170 off MSRP. Not bad for a brand new generation car . The plan for my car will be to keep it NA and improve the stock PP handling by investing in better suspension components, lighter wheels and wider tires.

Jamie did a fantastic job. If you are in the area, I highly recommend letting them handling your parts and installation needs. I have ordered WORK Emotion CR2P wheels in 20x10 +38 with 'A' disk, super deep concave and 20x11 +45 with 'A' super deep concave. I will be running Hankook Ventus R-S3 version 2 in 285/35/20 and 305/35/20. I will also have a 5mm hub centric spacer up front so my flat center caps will work with no issues.
