which rims should i choose?

once i get my chin spoiler on, i'm planning on saving up to get some new rims. i'll be selling my 18X9 chrome bullitts soon.

here are my options and i would like to hear some opinions:
18X9 front, 18X10 rear Black Chrome Saleens


18X9 front, 18X10 rear Black Chrome GT500 wheels (leaning towards these)


18X9 front, 18X10 rear Black Chrome FR500s


i originally wanted the Saleens, but the others are quite appealing as well. I know i def want black chrome as reg black is too plain for me, plus i have the black chrome 'Mustang' lettering on my bumper so it would match...

let me know what ya'll think!

I think everyone has the saleens. They're played out. Out of the three choices. I say go with the FR500s.

I think the gt500 are great the fr500 everyone is getting those. I went with a set of cobra r rims with chrome rivets on the lip they look sharp. But I like the looks of the saleens too

Fr500s

My friend Dan has black ones on his red GT like yours and it looks great.

I like the saleens and fr500s. I don't know if I like the gt500s on our model. I still think I picked the best choice for my car and am very happy with the saleens.

I think the saleens would look nice but you'd have to get it lowered...cars with saleens look 10x better with a drop.

You do see a lot of cars out there with the saleens and fr500's. Have you looked at the GT4's? I think they make those in hypercoated (shade lighter than black chrome). I saw them on a SB cobra last summer and they looked *****in in person.

I think the FR 500s look cool . that Saleen style is played out too common . Personally I like the drag look Weld prostars or Draglites - I had Draglites on my 2000 gt and they looked totally badass .

Re: which rims should i choose?

in my opinion FR 500's=first choice and saleens would be my second choice, I don't really like the other ones.

saleen or FR500s not the middle ones, ive heard black chrome chips quick so research that might just be one brand vs another.

Thx for all the input guys. I agree that you see the saleens alot lately. They are becoming like bullitts now. I do like the FR500s a lot also. But I just have a weak spot for those GT500s. Just not sure which would actually look better on my car.

Sonic- I do plan on lowering after the rims.

Louis- how do I add a poll after I post the thread?

You have to use the site not the app. Open the thread and click thread tools and it's in the drop down menu.
