Looking for some new shoes

Hey guys so I'm looking to possibly get a new set of rims and I really like the new Black Chrome look. Im thinking either the FR500 or Cobra's. What do you all think?

What do you mean by too rounded? I have the chrome ones now and like them pretty well

FR500 for the win as long as they are staggered.

Re: Looking for some new shoes

staggered look better but you cant rotate so you MUST keep those front tires aligned and watch them for wear issues (air them up regularly)

I definitely agree that they look better but i am on a fairly tight budget so being able to rotate them is a very important issue for me. Once this is not my DD then i can look into something like that

Don't worry about staggered. It's overrated. I'm bout to go 18x10 all the way around. Now if you want the staggered look but want to be able to rotate then get some rear 1" bolt-on spacers.

Staggered is the way to go. Trust me, I got staggered and now my pony looks like a true muscle car!

I see what you mean, the only reason I got mine staggered was because it was a great deal on craigslist. 17x9 and 17x10.5 new 03 04 chrome cobra rims with new tires for $650! Try looking on craigslist, you can find unbelieveable deals sometimes.
