Pick Drew's rims!!!

Ok guys and gals.

I will be buying new rims this winter. I have come down to 2 different options and I can't decide. Please help!!!
I will be running 18", 9" front and 10" rear with Micky Thompson ET streets.

Here are the 2 choices:

#1. True Forged Mach 5

#2. FR 500

Well I am kinda on the fence about the 2. I like them both so I decide to get everyone's opinion. I know I would be happy with both so getting the public's opinion is a GREAT idea!

Re: Pick Drew's rims!!!

A good comparison to do (even though it's not on a blue cobra), is compare my car pics to spectors pics. I have the FR's, he has the mach 5's.

I'm partial to the FR's myself...but I want to get the FR like version from true forged. I guess it boils down to do you want to spend $2 grand on rims or $700.

You have to call or email them for pricing. I think I was around $2600 for all 4. NOT Cheap!

I'm not a big fan of five spoke wheels. But those Mach 5's look incredible on that mustang. I love the staggered offset. Ugh, I can't wait to get my wheels... :/ Great idea having a poll btw.

Re: Pick Drew's rims!!!

I went with these! I just ordered them yesterday! 5 weeks I will have them! I went a complete different direction. I wanted to be different and I think I accomplished that.
