What do you think of the wheels i'm considering?

Basing this off in person viewing. I'd say the charcoal. I saw both of them on black cars; and personal opinion the charcoal is the better choice.You can actual see the wheel from a distance. Plus it really complements the car more than the black wheel.The back wheel on the other hand is slightly hidden by the black paint of the car and you don't really see the design of the wheel until your up close. Personally the charcoal wheel looks more intimidating to me. Just my opinion hope it helps

Ps. Lovely car

Funny you say that because I was thinking the same thing about the charcoal but wanted a second opinion.

Hey Devil - That's a tough one and on a Black Car I would say shoot for the Charcoal AMR Wheel, They just look right at home and I think they complement the car nicely as opposed to going with the Gloss Black.

If you're looking for a better idea of how they're going to look take a look at our Customer Submitted Images where you can filter the results by color:



I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any questions and I'm here to help!

Think the Charcoal is the way to go. Work really well on a black car. (or white in my case)

Nice looking wheel choices you have selected.

I went with the Ford Racing 18x9.5 GT500 charcoal/machined wheels and run 255/45/18 and 285/40/18 tires which has a 1% speedo error. Wheels sold as a kit with: 4 wheels, 4 SVT center caps, 4 TPMS and the calibration tool. Look for FRPP: M-1007KIT-DC1895. These wheels will also clear a 4-piston Brembo brake upgrade such as FRPP: M-2300-S. I ended up swapping the SVT center caps for the Tri-bar pony caps.

Personally, I'd go with the 19" versions.

The 20" wheels are heavier and you'll need to a thinner tire which is going to give a harsher ride. The heavier wheels will slow you down a little due to increased rotational mass, AND handle worse due to the heavier wheels not bouncing as rapidly or freely as lighter wheels.

Yeah I'm going with the 19in. Now trying to decide if I want get the suspension parts first or get the six piston brembo brakes.
