Me personally im more speed freak than looky look. Id prefer a hideous monster to a sweet looking monster.
Its only looks, to me it all matters what's under the hood, pretty doesn't win a race.
Dont get me wrong good looking is never a bad thing

Concave front and rear, its just the design they went with. I like the seven spoke Saleen wheel, I didn't really want to get it through Saleen only because they are so expensive but the Saleen wheel American Muscle offers is pretty much exact, the only thing I didn't like is the center cap isn't flush and and doesn't concave with the wheel, but other then that I love them!!!

I don't know if you can see but the center cap I ordered through AM, isn't concave and doesn't flush to the wheel but it still looks pretty good I think!

I like the wheels they are different and they look sick on the newer body styles. Did you get staggered fitment ?

You have my Vote! I'm definitely a fan of the S197 Saleen wheels, they look perfect on the 10+ Mustangs. Also with your Color I think they'll look great!

Don't know yet, I haven't had it on the dyno lately but the last time I did I hit 468hp and 460tq and that was before I dropped the pulley and LT's and had different gears in the rear too, I have 4.10's in right now!
