Rim choice help

I'm going to be purchasing a set of 18 " staggered rims on sumitomo tires from AM on Friday and was originaly dead set on the charcoal AMR rims, now seeing the charcoal Gt500 rims I'm not to sure. Any opinions on what you guys think would look better on my car? Here is my car for reference.

Can't stand them at all. Too played out IMO. But wheels are all preference I suppose

I do like the GT500 wheels, but for some reason I always think the spokes on them are too thick or something and just look a little bulky or something. I'd probably get the AMR's. I do love the 2013 GT500 wheels though also.

The 10 gt500 wheels are ok. Don't go with the 07-09 IMO. The bubble out and take away from the lines of the car. As soon as I get enough $, off they come. At least the 10's curve in and it doesn't take away from the car.

I agree; I feel that if they angled in instead of out they would look so much better.

I'd still pick razors for your car. That's just MO.

They are sweet!!!

They have different sizes and colors as stated. I wish they still made them to fit my Shelby.

I'd go for the '13 gt500 then for sure. I'm anxious to see what they look like. I'm gonna put winter tires on my current rims next year and get new rims and tires next spring, so I'm wanting to see as many options with available rims lol.

AM's 13' GT500 is my vote. Going to pulling the trigger on a set of 18's staggered in a few weeks.
