    I have that rim. I am thinking about switching to a lighter rim once the tires are shot and selling them. Ford sells these for something like $1000 a piece. They must be forged for that price.

    Answering my own question. These rims have a load rating of 1500 Lbs. More than enough for the SHO.

    Hey guys and girls, I'm new to the group. Just picked up a 2014 SHO in Tuxedo Black. I would like to put some wheels on her as I'm one of those guys who can't leave it alone. LOL. I'm in love with the TSW Chrono in the black with gold spokes. I'm looking for those in a 20x10 or something similar. Any suggestions? All I can find is the Chronos in 20x8.5.

    Been lurking on this group for a little while since I've been considering an SHO. Figured I'd join when I bought one. Glad to be in the group.

    Are those new I don't remember seeing them? I like them though. They come in 20x8.5 ET40, 20x9 ET30 and 20x10 ET40. I believe the 20x10 will fit on the back not sure about the front.

    Flowers 69mm 147mm
    20x10s 87mm 167mm

    Yeah, I really like them too.
    Now, you're going to have to explain your reply to me a little more. ET40 and ET30, what does that mean? What about the Poke Inset? Sorry, been out of the wheel game for a LONG time.

    ET is the offset, which is where the wheel mounting surface(where it meets the rotor/hub to be bolted on the car) is in relationship to the centerline of the wheel. Positive offset brings the mounting surface further out, tucking the wheel further into the fenderwell and negative further in pushing the wheel out (higher negative offset is typically spotted by a bigger lip). The factory flower wheels ate 20x8 ET39 so comparing those to the 20x10 ET40 TSWs they will poke(stick out further) 18mm more and inset(reach in further) 20mm more. You have to worry about fender clearance or the wheels sticking out of the fender with too much poke and inner fender and suspension bits clearing with too much inset.

    Oh ok, thanks for the explanation! Since I'm new to all this, do you think the 20x10s with the ET40 will fit?

    My guess is good chance on the rear not sure about the front. I'm running 20x9.5 ET35s with 275/40s without issue. I'm pretty sure bpd has 20x10s on the rear, he is def running a staggered setup so not that wide up front.

    ET also is what makes the wheel just look good. You hear the term, "concave." This refers to ET, if the wheel design is done correctly, the lower ET creates a very nice concave wheel especially wheels with spokes/arms. The spoke starts at the outter lip and then curves in to the hub area. Much more appealing than just a "flat," looking wheel design.

    I just wonder if I can stuff a 275/45/20 on that combo without issues. I want the 30 inch tall tire because I am still stock ride height. I wonder if I can.....

    You and me both!!! Absolutely love this setup! Been looking for gloss black wheels for years, and these are the best by far.

    Did you have to do any mods at all to make these fit? Do you have any spacers or do they sit that flush?

    I know he is on H&R's, but I am pretty sure he didn't have to use any spacers. I just bought new tires Conti DWS 06 all the way around for the flowers so it will be a little while before I buy a rim and tire package. I just wonder if I can fit a 275/45/20 because I am still stock ride height just leved in the rear. I want the taller tire to suck up the gap, and with a taller tire, you get bigger contact patch for everything from auto cross to drag racing to half mile stuff. My SHO will see an array of motorsport events this coming year.

    H&R springs are correct. No mods to make them fit. It took me about 18 months of searching for wheels, finding the right one. Take your time. The wheel you pick can make the car or break it. Use caution on choosing a tire taller than stock. A taller sidewall will not give you the same performance as a shorter one. If you're talking autocross, than the springs should be a must.
