Which rims?

It's been forever, but I have narrowed my choice of rims to American Muscle Chrome 2010 GT Premium Wheels 19inch or Lorenzo WL 28 ,19 inch. Does anybody have a thought on this?

Lorenzo of those two. I don't get the fascination with the 2010 GT wheels. Had that style stock on my 2011 and glad they are gone

I just sold my 2011 Brembo wheels to a local guy who replaced his 2010 GT chrome wheels. They were flaking. Not sure if issue with chroming from factory but it did not look good.

I really don't think you can go wrong, they're a very similar style wheel! I can't speak for the 2nd option, but the 2010 GT Premium wheel is very popular and looks great, as you can see on Mr.Mike's Mustang!

Either way your Mustang will look great. Let me know if you have any questions or need some assistance! Our Mustang Experts are here Monday-Friday from 9AM-9PM EST and Saturdays from 9AM-5:30PM EST. If you want to hit them up, their number is 866.727.1266. I can also have one of them call you directly.

Same here. I'm not much of a non - Mustang wheel fan on a Mustang. I also kind if like the '10 GT wheels. Just a nice clean 5 spoke design which I don't think you can go wrong with.

Plus the fake rivets aren't my cup of tea either, but to each his own.

The fake rivets look hideous imo too. The stock wheels in Chrome look so much better. Another case when less, is more.

They're a little dirty right now. I need to wash him, but if you look at my photos you may be a able to see them a little.

In the pic they're a little blotchy, it's only cause they're wet.

I have spent seven hours on the Internet this weekend looking at rims. The more I look , the more undecided I become. I'm keeping the original tires, because the miles on them are low. That real limits my search to 19 inch rims. I have opened my search now to include some black on the chrome or all chrome

I have the same wheels u do for my stocks, but if your looking to change the rims and keep the tires, I honestly think its a waste... I personally liked my stockers but the real reason ppl change their wheels is so they can have the choice for wider tires for more ground contact and they look way better also it gives your Mustang a meaner look

I'm limited for monetary reasons to just get rims at this time. In a perfect world I would replace both though

Then save up for both unless you never want wider wheels.

The wider tire makes the stance so much meaner! The stock tires are way to narrow for a stang imo.
