Black or Charcoal

Trying to decide whether I like the Charcoal or the Black AMR wheels on Sterling Grey 13 GT. I like the fact the charcoal are flat but like black. If they had Flat Black no brainer. Budget doesn't let me get the Fosse I want so what do you guys thing? Any Pictures you can add of either on yours appreciated. I have seen pictures where the charcoal seem pretty dark and others where they seem lighter.

The INVO are definitely better just cost more. I JUST ordered the Black 20's with Sumitomo. Guy does my work says they are good for price and definitely last long. he said liked these over the 55 but the INVOs are better than what I got too. Thought i would share his opinion. Since mine is a DD I went with the Sumitomo for combo of price and longevity. They arrived and look good but wont be on until tomorrow.

Well made the decision and went with the 20" Black AMR and Sumitomo HTR-Z. Only a day in but the tire are WAY better than the Perelli's that came with the Brembo package. Love the look of the wheels. Car is coming along exactly how i wanted it to. Thanks for input guys.

What are you looking to do suspension wise?

I've got Eibach springs and have just ordered Koni orange shocks/struts. Haven't decided on LCA/UCA mods.

Although it has changed a few times I am pretty much set on this:
Eibach Pro System Plus (sprins, shocks struts and sway bars)
Steeda adjustable UCA
J&M adjustable Camber Plates
J&M Extreme Joint LCA
J&M adjustable Pan Hard bar.

Was looking at the Hotchkis Stage 2 TVS package but it is about $500 more than the set up above and no camber plates or shocks and struts. I have a daily driver so think the K member and frame braces are probably overkill too.

Also going to do one piece aluminum drive shaft eventually. Power and help with tranny.

Do you have a manual? If so a short shifter and shift bracket (I did Barton) are a huge help I think.

When I lowered my car, I also picked up a set of Camber bolts but they weren't needed as the tech was able to align my car without them. Because of that I've gone back and forth on a set of camber plates but think I'll pass for now b/c no camber adj needed and I do not plan to track the car.

I do have a manual and am looking to install a MGW shifter at some point (possible after Mustang week).

The aluminum drive shaft should be a nice upgrade.
