New rim pics

Got new rims today, wanted a more classic mustang look so I sold the saleens. Might have been a mistake car dosen"t look as good.

It looks great either way, but I think I liked the saleens just a hair more. However the bullits still look badass on there.

Nice..I currently have 18's on my mustang, but i'm stepping down to a 17. 18" tires are to damn expensive and i'm wanting to auto-x the car next year.

Re: New rim pics

Are those deep dish bullits? If so, I might take them off your hands when you decide to get the Saleen rims back. The saleens did look better.

Re: New rim pics

I like the polished ring look on your car. The saleens were nice but IMO plain black rims only look good on black cars/trucks. Plus it is getting more common that people are putting black rims on their cars I'd want something different. I wish my camera wasn't broke I'd show everybody my new rims.

Same style as what rim? Those are basically Bullets and Saleens up top.

Still looks good, orion! I'm just partial to Saleens because I want to order those for mine eventually. Love the black and red combo.

Re: New rim pics

Re: New rim pics

Both sets of wheels looked great on your car. Red and black is one of my favorite color combos.

Re: New rim pics

Hell yeah, Straub. Definitely not bad for $100!

I am really starting to like the Bullits more and more. Maybe better than the Saleens. I like the chrome lip breaking up the black.

Re: New rim pics

I think the saleens brought out the modern muscle look of the 05 body style, and the current bullitts bring out the classic muscle-retro look that the body style gives off.

Either way the car looks *****in man...I would have to say though that either set wouldn't look as good if it weren't dropped...lowering makes all the difference.

Re: New rim pics

I agree with sonic on this one. If you weren't dropped, then it would definitely not look as good. I'm sure that's pretty much a given though.

Re: New rim pics

IDK. I just can't warm up to black rims on light or bright colored cars. Too much of a distraction. They look great on dark colored cars - sinister on black. Could be just me.
