That is a beautiful car! I like the contrast of the black & silver & the rims top it off perfect.

Thanx!

The wheels are AR Torq Thrust D's. All four corners are 15X8 - BS 4.5.

My wife put her foot down when I said I wanted to sell the wheels and get Magnum 500's. So the TTD's will stay for now ;)

235/60SR15 Firestone Firehawk SS20's.

Fronts rub on the inner - upper fender wells. I'm hoping all new springs and shocks will raise the car an inch and have less travel than my worn out springs to eliminate the rubbing. Otherwise I'll need to change the tire size in the front.

Mine wants to look like yours when it grows up! What paint color is it? Are the rim spokes painted to match? Did you do it?

xr7ron,
Those are stock Torq Thrust D's that just happens to match the paint almost perfectly. :)

gt390xr7,
Many Cougar owners give their cars names and such so I've attached Felix to my Coug. :p

I love those wheels, a friend just put a set of those on his falcon.Thanks for the heads up on Felix. My first car was a 69 Galaxie ragtop and it was named" Shadowfax". I haven't thought about naming any of the others, I suppose I should if I am going to keep them...
