Saleen wheels vs FR500

Let's take a toll here. Who here thinks Saleens are better than FR500s. And vice versa.

Both look really good! but the FR500s don't belong on any model other than the 94-04...

Oh ya! Well my cousin has an 03 GT And he is always saying that his wheels are better. But I don't think so.

Re: Saleen wheels vs FR500

I went with the FR500s on mine... but the Saleens look so good! If I didn't get so many compliments on the FR500s, I would change to saleens...

I'm having the same argument saleens or fr500 lol. No one sells the fr500 on Craig's so most likely their like 1400 new. I've found a few saleens on Craig's from 500-1100. I want tht deep dish look in the back so ima save up for the fr500's. Both look sick though

I've been debating going back to 17's. Not sure if it's the potholes or what. Just seems like such stiffer ride. Do you have any rubbing issues with the 275 on frt?
