I was told these wheels are from a 2009 Gt500. I was offered to purchase all four tires and Gt500 wheels for 425 dollars. They are 18 inch and Dunlap tires. I have no idea of the tread life at this time. What do you guys think of these wheels? Are those Gt500 wheels? Would they look good on my car with my stripping or am I better going with a chrome wheel instead of black?

Yea those are gt500 wheels. I've never been a fan of them but for the price it's not too bad & they look better than the stock 3.7 wheels.

I don't know how much tread life is left on them. I'm just thinking the black will get lost with my color. I thought a chrome or white wheel would look better. I need a freaking money tree bro. Lol

Have to agree on going with either chrome/alloy/white. Black on such a dark color car plus its white accents plus matte black rims...too busy I think.

The stock aren't bad but I also agree with you. You need chrome rims or an alloy because the black ones will get lost with your color scheme.
