Need Help Choosing Between Wheels

I am looking to buy some new rims. But I can't seem to decide between the Anthracite FR500, Black Machined FR500, Black Machined KMC Nova and maybe even the Black Magnum 500 rims. What do y'all think? Please help me out.

I really like the FR500 wheels on the new edge mustangs. Gotta have the 10.5" ers in the rear! As for the color anthracite is my favorite but that's all personal preference. Get what you like!

I really like the FR500s. But also thought something like the Nova would be different, but would they look good, that is the question.

The Nova would be different since so many have the FR500s. Either would look good, if you want something that not everyone else has get the Novas, I myself may be a little boring by choosing aftermarket parts I've seen on other cars and like.

I had the fronts but they didn't have rears so I ordered different. I actually liked them a lot

Wow that looks awesome Slow4V! I attempted some Photoshop using the Nova wheels on my car. How does this look?

But they wouldn't be flush like it looks, they center would be set in farther leaving a lip.

I know I looked there. But the only bad thing is they had DD but not the wheels for up front. Unless I missed something. Know of another place that has them?

I think the Magnums would look the best, especially if you set your car up kind of like Slow's car

If I were to get something with a lot of spokes like that, I would do the FR500s. That's what I am contemplating between is FR500s and the Magnum 500s.

I would probably go with a set of Anthracite or Black FR500 Wheels. This wheel is definitely my personal favorite option for the 99-04 Mustangs! The new edges really look great with a staggered 17x9 & 17x10.5 set up, even the 18x9 & 18x10 look great.

The Magnum 500 wheel is pretty tough to find and the Nova wheel would definitely be different. I've never seen them installed on a new edge, but it's a good looking wheel so I'm sure it would look great!

This is just my .02, feel free to hit me up if you have any questions or need some assistance in the near future!

Yea I really like the Anthracite FR500s. The Magnums are really hard to find. All I can find is the Deep Dish for the backs. I like the Nova wheels too but I haven't found one picture of any 99-04 that has ever installed them. Thanks for the help Dan and I definitely will.
