The New Shelby Super Snake (Alcoa Dura-Bright replacements) Wheels

Recommended Posts

Not a fan of the new SS wheels either. Glad I got the old style SS Alcoas.

 

As others stated, the pictures could be misleading and the wheels could actually look pretty good in person. I do sort of like the wheels the 1000 has but I don't think those would look good on a regular GT500.

They're leaving the original supercharger... That's the new 'cosmetic' SS level since the '13 has 662 HP. At this stage, they're done with all mechanical upgrades, once they've badged it, it's pretty much done. I just completed a 2010 SS in May, so I'm pretty familiar with the process. The new wheels are definitely a dud...

I wouldn't want these wheels. Rather keep the stock wheels or find some others.

FAIL

 

 

Yeah, pretty epically too.

 

Weak and uninspired design, and the dull finish looks about the same as the wheels on my wife's minivan. I agree with whomever said pictures can be deceiving but as of now I would not put those on my car if they were free.

Robert Lane, Sir, you guys really need to take a look at putting the older Alcoa's back into production, there are so many people out there that want/need them.

I seen both the proto type 2013 SS and the Gotta Have It Green GT350. In person they are both awesome IMO. That being said, I still do not like the %ss end of the new stangs. Pictures do the green no justice. I thought the wheels looked nice in person.

 

Just my thoughts.

The new wheels definitely aren't as elegant looking. The older style were timeless. The new style looks like it came straight out of the'80s.

 

Exactly! The worse of the 80's... :hysterical3:

Someone must like them though...

They were on the Shelby 1000 as a test...?! Somehow...

Then on the new 13' SS...

Then on the tribute car...

I guess the feedback must have been good?!

Personally, I dislike them.

I think who ever gave them feedback in person was just trying to be nice. I know I wouldn't be flaming them in person as much as I am on this forum. I would feel too bad about doing it lol. But then thats the beauty of the internet, unbiased unedited feedback.

I'm waiting to see a set that has the "Mirror Polish" feature.

 

That may change the look entirely.

You may be right...

I do not like this "billet" brushed look.

Reminds me of the time when everyone was doing billet parts (fake or real)...

And it's the center that's not right.

The Shelby logo center hub cap should not be flush with the wheel itself.

Just an opinion...

And deep dish wheels scream "OLD"...

Maybe "Concave" wheels will be outdated soon and the Shelby deep dish wheel is just ahead of a "new old trend"...

Maybe it has to do with the mix of old and new that is found everywhere on the current Shelby's...

I still like concave wheels way more...for the time being.
