Wheels

What's your guys' take on which wheels I should get. I got 99/01 cobra wheels and they look cool but they're wayyyy to skinny and they look good with wheel spacers until you get to the back lol. I'm wanting to get some new wheels with my tax money I'm getting back. What your guys opinions on what I should get? There's my car now.

Yep. They were discontinued a couple years ago so finding them is a big pain in the *** and they are expensive on top of that.

Whichever you want to get I would suggest go with 18'. IMO they look better and will fill in the wheel well better as well.

That's what holding me back from getting 17s cause I have them now and 18 looks so good with just that extra inch. Your black gt you had was sick and kinda made me want black FR500s but then again I love chrome saleens lol. Hard decisions!

I agree with Venomous, the 18 inch wheel looks great on our cars. My 17's vs. my 18's.

You wouldn't think you could tell that much of a difference in just one inch but you can really tell! 18s look so much better on your car man!
