What wheels look best

I don't know what wheels to buy.... Y'all please help... The polished aluminum ones are 18" and they are what carl has and the other are 19" 2010+ gt wheels

They are both going to run me about the same price

I'm also worried about cost of ownership of 19" wheels due to tire prices

Not a fan of suv wheels on performance vehicles (one reason I'm not fully sold on 19"... Wanted to stay at 18") 20" wheels will drastically effect performance right?

Dallas, and I don't know how I do it... I just tend to find people throwing stuff out

I'm seriously thinking of starting to sell new and used parts... Trade in trade up so let's say you have an 07 gt and your about to buy a 2012 5.0 you trade in all your old parts to either A. Get a discount off your new parts or B. Just out right sell me your old stuff...

I think a lot of people could benefit from that type of business I already have my own LLC so It would not b very hard to Start this thing up

It was between these or the fr500s. Chose these cuz I read that the big brake upgrade won't fit wit the fr500s.
