MMD 551c look a likes

I ordered staggered 19' MMD 551c's but American Muscle discontinued them... They where really good about taking care of it and offered to give a deal on 20's... AM is always first class but I don't really want 20's

So my question is what are some rims that look similar to these that I can find in staggered 19's?

Rovos Durbans look pretty similar.

Billy - Sorry about the trouble. Like Soccer said above Rovo's would be close but we only stock them in 20's.

Vossens CV3's are somewhat similar (5 spoke, simple classy look) but the area around the lug nuts is a little bit different/

Niche Milans (sadly in 20's only too) but Forgestars CF5's are close too.

Sorry we weren't much help on this but let me know if there's anything else I can help out with on the search.

Thanks for the help. I noticed that all the similar designs are in 20's... Guess I'll just have to keep looking!


Also my dads friend took me to the track with his 5.0 and I was instantly hooked! So if I did decide to go 20's vs 19's how much slower would it make me in the 1/4 mile?

You won't be able to tell the difference I weighted my MMD 551c's and surprisingly they weight less then what I though 23lbs for the 20x8.5 and 26 for the rear 20x10. Tires are also way cheaper for 20's then 19's which is always a plus. Click image for larger version

Ya but isn't it the rotational mass you have to worry about and the fact that the larger diameter? Do you know if it would show up a difference in the 1/4 time?

Also that is a SICK car! I'm jealous!

Well from going from stock 31lbs wheels to 26lbs wheels and being relatively the same diameter tire size wise actually helps quite a bit. And thanks it's been an ongoing project haha

I ordered the same MMD's in charcoal. I got the 245 45 19's. Love them, waiting to put them on. The Vossen's are like double the price of the MMD's!



Just a near stock 3.7

I went with the square set up. I wanted the ability to rotate the tires for maximum tread life.

Need to put my new slotted and drilled rotors on but they are in the process of getting powder coated.

No one knows where I could find some staggered 19' five spoke design rims? I have been searching all over and I only find 20's
