How do you think these will look

I am thinking about getting the black FR500 deep dish 17X10.5 and 17X9's. How do you think they will look and is this a good price?

I didn't look at the price because I have been shopping for FR500's for the last 3 months.

American Muscle is pretty much the best price you are going to find. You could check out lethalperformance.com or dagostinoracing.com, but their prices are going to all be within 5-10 of AM.

How do I think they will look? I think terrible, but I am not the one to ask. I am a major opponent to black rims and think they should be left to steel wheels that get covered by hub caps. So, my opinion is very biased.

does it tend to make the rim look smaller because of the webbing

Re: How do you think these will look

I like the FR500's but I would never get them in any size lower than an 18. It does look a little odd, black or not.
