rim decision.. opinions...?

I have a 01 true blue gt and I'm deciding on rims and every time I breaks it down I always end back up at stag. Bullitts...

I really like saleens but chrome because I don't think black looks good with the darker blue....

and I can't really go chrome ...

I live in Nebraska so chrome would get ruined from salt...

fr500 are a little too busy..

Any opinions..

So you can't go with chrome and you don't think black looks good on a darker blue.. So what color are you leaning towards..

Those Anthracite Bullitt's look good.

What do you think about Charcoal AMRs or Black with Machined lip 2010 GT500?

You're kind of limiting yourself because you don't want chrome or black....not really have any other choices. You could always keep your stocks wheels for the winter...

I think the anthracite SVE wheels would look pretty awesome with that dark blue. I've also seen some anthracite '13 GT500's.

I have polished wheels here in Ohio and have to deal with a ton of salt also. I haven't had any issues with them yet. I would think as long as you spray them off after it snows or what not you could keep the salt down to a minimum. I washed my Mustang once a week during the winter with a touchless automatic and right after the roads are cleared and the salt is gone I spray it off with the pressure wash. I think if you did that you shouldn't really have any issues with the salt and chrome wheels. I probably also spent about $8 a week on washing it so it's not too pricey to keep up on it either.

The '03 Cobras or the Anniv.? I'd definitely go for the Machined '03's. I was dead set on getting those for my fox body for years but ended up selling to for my '06.

I saw a fox body with machined '03 cobras the other day and they looked quite fantastic on it, so good choice!
