This is a thread on my 2022 CFTP GT500 in the new grabber blue metallic. Hope you'll follow along with me. I ordered the car on 11/26/21 and received it on 7/2/22 (a total of 7 months and 1 week, or about 220 days).

Here is my GT500 delivery video from 7/2/22, what a day it was. And just for kicks, here was my GT350R delivery video from Nov 2018.

This was the first time I laid eyes on my 500 :love:...

I asked the dealer to NOT remove any protective tape or plastics whatsoever...

I also instructed the dealer to NOT wash the car, so they obliged :LOL:. Filthy is quite an understatement...

The car also only came with "5 miles until empty" and by the time I got to the gas station, I had 1 mile remaining...

A few days later, I removed the CF wheels and put on my new custom BC Forged wheels (5 weeks from order to delivered). These wheels are about as close to "replicas" of the CFTP wheels as they get and I got them in the "brushed dark black" finish which I simply love (close up pics to come later on)...

And since I'm running squared, I've got OP Mustang's 27mm spacers up front. Fantastic quality and super lightweight...

Gorgeous color!! Congrats on the new ride.

Just curious, why are you not running the carbon fiber stock rims? They look amazing against that blue.
Thanks man. As for switching out my CF wheels, here is the main reason.

Awesome! You are gonna be blown away. Pictures and videos CANNOT accurately capture the look and color of the grabber blue metallic. Keep us posted!

What spacers did you go with? Can wait to see pics.

Following this thread for sure.....looks great. One of the main reasons I wanted a CFTP was specifically for those wheels. But too many other factors overruled. Maybe someday I'll have a chance to pick up a set someone doesn't want but would need to be more economical (doubtful). Your replacement wheels look great. I'm curious though, are you putting the CF away for investment value, too much risk for damage, or something else? If I had them, it would take a LOT to make me take them off. They just look so sexy.

Yeah I saw his videos before. He & Shmee were the only two so far that I’ve seen bust the CF wheels. I’m sure other have also. Also pretty sure that if they had the standard wheels, the outcome would be the same albeit the cost differential. It sucks that the cost essentially prompts many to do same as you. That being said, your replacements are killer & doubling up can make tire swapping for track days easy.
