New wheels?

Well I finally saved the cash but deciding what to get is the tough part. I'm leaning towards the 18" staggered SVE drifts from LMR or the 18"staggered DD bullits from AM. Anyone else run into these hard choices? Opinions? Suggestions?

Bullits. The drifts don't look good on your body style.

Bullitts definitely... Did you look at FR500s? They look nice also.

Funny, I was deciding between the same two wheels. In the end I went with the Bullitts.

One thing you want to keep in mind is the color of the anthracite Bullitts varies between companies. AM's Bullitts look to be a brighter silver versus LMR's, which are a darker shade of grey. Mine are LMR Bullitts.

I agree. While the Bullitts from AM look nice. I think they look almost chrome or polished in the sunlight. I definitely like the darker grey of the LMR wheel myself.

Thanks for all the replies! After searching more the drifts just don't do it anymore for me. I do like the the FR500's but everybody here in MA has them. Just don't want to follow the crowd. So DD bullits in chrome or matte black or maybe 03 cobras or even the 10th anniversary wheels. Ugh this is tough. I have chrome wheels now (looks great on ted) but love my color car sitting on black.

I had saleens on my 98 GT and wasn't in love with them. Maybe they would have better curb appeal on my 04
