I love the ASA JS5 16x8 wheels that are on Kevin Vines black turbocoupe in the showroom. I had a great quote on these wheels last fall, but things happen, and I wasnt able to grab them.

Now that I'm ready, I called my buddy at the tire store, and these rims are no longer available. I called several places, including tirerack.com. Nothing. I'm very bummed.

Anybody else know who may have a set of these?

I have a black TC also, I thought they looked great on Kevins TC.

Tried Ebay or Craig's list?

Well, that just sucks. I went to tirerack's site and they don't carry 4 lug ford wheels at all anymore? Are they crazy? I mean, anyone ever heard of putting aftermarket wheels on any mustang from 1979 to 1993? (sarcasm, my apologies) They just lost a great big piece of the "aftermarket wheel" pie, in my opinion.
Thanks for the compliments on my car by the way... or at least the wheels.

With a quick search of ebay, here are a few examples of wheels that I found. I like the black in the center with a chrome lip ones.

Need to watch the offset on some of these tho.
I think the 15MM offset is too little. I'm using +20MM on my Black TC and even then the front wheels are set out a little more than I would like.

Pete,
Had a look at Feebay and Craigslist, nothing.

Kevin,
Thanks for providing some wheel links for me. I really didnt have a backup plan for rims. Damn I should have jumped on those ASA wheels last fall - had a quote for $531.00 out the door! I love your car by the way, not just the wheels!!

Not sure what to do now. Guess I'll keep looking. I thought about chrome Cobra R wheels, but I thought that brushed aluminum look that your wheels are really did it for me.

Might want to check on these.
18s... and no offset information... but maybe you could get lucky?
