Brembo wheels or no?

Ok was looking for some advise on what to do i have my 10 black gt with track pack, i have an option to buy the factory brembo wheels from a 13 gt for $600 or should i go with the gt500 off the am site or was even thinking the billet wheels from am as well in either the black with chrome lip or the gray with chrome, im not wanting anything smaller then 19 and am planning on lowering about 1.2-1.5 all around

For what its worth I am currently (exact moment) getting my Brembo wheels off and getting the AMR. GT500 was first choice but won't fit with Brembo package. Price isnt too bad if decent tires left. I see Brembo wheels on Craigs List all the time with decent tires for $600-750

Not sure if it's the design or inferior paint but my Brembo's were getting sand blasted and chipped after only 15k so I plasti - dipped them.

BTW I tried the repair method by the guys at dipyourcar.com and it works.

I like the brembos look that's for sure. But if your looking to throw a big tire on sooner or later those wont cut more then a 255 I believe.

Keep in mind with the Brembo Brake package, there are some rims that you can't use with that package. Just make sure that you have the rims and tire package that you want. For example, I have the 18" Chrome Bullitts 18-9/10. These rims wont work with the Brembos.

Good Luck whichever way you go!
