Rtr or saleen wheels?

I like them both and cannot decide between the 2. Both sets will be black and staggered 18x9/10. Both r about the same price. The car is for performance but also want it to look good. They will be on a 00 gt. PLEASE HELP!!!!

Yea. I've just never seen any Rtr on my body style. Both had great performance ratings. But my drawback was that i dunno if the Rtr would look as good on there than the saleens

If I had to pick I'd say RTR. Just because it would make it unique

Was going to say RTR so that you won't buy my Saleens. Point me to a side pic of your car and the wheels and I could whip up a Photoshop for ya.

N my end result no chrome or polished aluminum on the car at all. I want it stealthy. It was a really tough decision to make between the rims. I haven't seen anything with the Rtr on them around here so that's y they was one of my choice. But the saleens look mean. The quarter made my decision lol

Yeah I understand that lol
I haven't seen them on new Edges either but they look amazing on the s197s. If I had one I'd want to do the Rtr package

And I want chrome for mine since mine is sonic blue but I have thought about black wheels before
