Afternoon! I just inherited a 1999 MGM in black. The thing only my has 50k on it. It's great! Anyhow, I'm not a fan of the "spoke style" hubcaps that came with it and am looking to get a better looking set. Any recommendations? I don't want to spend an arm and a leg. The center caps are still in tact if that helps. Thank you!

Sorry if this is the wrong forum!http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20160914/ea66dc1063d80ad274425ed7770bcca8.jpg

On the cheap, I guess you are staying wheel cover. Personally I think the wheel covers you have are the best available for the model year. The chrome is a good contrast for the black. But if you really want to change them, you could run any 16in wheel cover you like for the most part.

Sometimes you can pick up stock Mustang wheel and tire take offs for relatively good prices. They'll bolt on with some spacers.

Or find a set of HPP wheels (direct bolt on) which look freakin awesome on MGM's:

It does look really great! What mustang take offs were you talking about? Any ones in particular?

Any five lug wheels from 94+ mustangs. These are the aftermarket fr500's:

If you think spacers anyway, Maurader wheels are also an option.

Basically anything with a 5x4.5 bolt pattern will work - find something you like and we'll let you know if they will work.

Just be aware of the offset. Its different 2002- and 2003+. Mustang wheels also have a different offset, so spacers could be involved.
