I like both... hard to say...

I saw too many new edge with bullit... they are really sexy.... I like the classic look
But, i never saw a new edge with fr500 (in real, just in pictures)... I like the look and a lot of people say they turn heads and they match perfectly with our car...

So i`m really confused now

I personally really like the bullits the best. Just gives it the classic muscle car look.

FR500's are nice, but I like the timeless design of the Bullitt wheel.

I have bullits but want fr500s haha. I think you will stand out more with fr but you can always count on bullits to make your mustang look sexy.

I've got Bullitts and hate them, but I've got FR500s waiting on tires.

Just to give a side by side comparison of the ho hum OEM Bullitts, and the staggered 18" Bullitts from LMR. There is no comparison.

I can see why people don't like their stock bullitts. But I think the after market DD staggered set up bullitts look sweet!! I will be getting rims and tires soon and I'm 95% sure that's what I'm going with.

You won't be disappointed if you do go with DD Bullitts. Just do your research, each company seems to have a different shade of Anthracite. AM's Bullitt wheel looks more like a brighter silver versus the darker gray of LMR's wheel that I went with.

FR500's for sure. Most mustangs have Bullitts (mine included,) I'd do something different if I had the chance. Doesn't help that I love the FR500's also lol

That is easily my top 3 favorite NE Mustang I have ever seen and I think if it had any other wheel on it it would just blend it with most other Mustangs.
