Default Opinion: Recommendation on replacement XP wheels

I recently bought a 1998 Saleen Explorer and it has the wrong wheels on it. I wondered what the general consensus was for replacing the missing Speedline wheels?

Find a set of Speedline wheels. They are out there. They are the same (I believe the rears) as the ones on the Saleen Mustangs. Make sure you get the correct offset. You may have to buy them two at a time. I think there are several members on this forum that have at least 2 for sale. Greg and Todd (Saleen Dream Forever) I believe both have several of these wheels for sale currently. Todd has a restored set of 4 or at least did up until recently.

You will most likely have to piece together a set since the XP8s use 4 of the same offset.

Like I mentioned in the Explorer Talk forum.. Especially for the price, I don't think you can go wrong with the Wheel Replicas wheels - http://wheelreplicas.com/18-inch-saleen-replica/ , then add TFB designs center cap emblems - http://shop.tfbdesigns.com/Saleen-Ce...S351-SALCC.htm

I went with black chrome -


Then, put together a set over time if you really have to have the original ones.
