Not black, please. Something polished or machined aluminum.

actually i will be the first to agree with him, i hate black rims, im sure you could search countless threads stating my hate over the whole black rim or black rim/polished lip crap i see everyday.

however i love my car's look, it stance, everything. i planned before buying the car back that the rims would likely be the first to go, however upon seeing it in person my jaw dropped and i instantly said to my buddy who was also gawking over it and went "yeah looks like i wont be buying another set of FR500's"

IF i were to have done rims to the car i probably would have went with Chrome FR500's or Chrome 03/04 5 spokes (like i have now)

Nah....his looks just as bad as the rest with black rims....walmart had a sale when the previous owner picked them up I guess.

And Spec, if you don't like 17" FR500's, then get the 18's. I have seen 18s and 17s side by side and they really don't look that much different to me anyhow. once you get rid of the lift kit, I think they are just fine.

Yeah, but, you're probably just not thinking straight after all that moving we did tuesday and wednesday...you just need some rest and relaxation to come around.

I think there are some around that have a mild dish. They are like 11 or 12 in wide though. I love those wheels.

Re: Wow me with Redfire cars with rims

If your current rim size is 17", get the same rim you have in 18". There is nothing wrong with what is already on your car.

How fat are your pockets Spec? CCW 505A's look badass on a Terminator. The CCW Classics look good too.

You beat me to it, I was going to say CCW Classics. If you are ballin' enough, you could go with some HRE's, they would definitely be unique on a cobra..

Re: Wow me with Redfire cars with rims

I would like to spend 2500 MAYBE 3k max on rims and tires... the 2500 range would be nicer.
