I dunno, I think that most people prefer the look of bullitts and how much justice they do to the car, otherwise there wouldn't be so many people that owned them. The foose wheels are nice but I (as would most people) would take the bullitts all day everyday over the foose

Ha yea only on the 1996-2004 models. And that's it. Pretty sure bullets on your 5.0 would just look plain dumb. And nah it's koo I get TONS of complements on my foose wheels but then again they only look good on the 05-09s

That's why I don't have bullitts on mine, I have the brembo wheels. And like I said there is nothing wrong with your foose wheels, but I would still do bullitts over the foose on the 05-09. Hey brother to each their own, that's what makes us enthusiasts and makes each persons car their own

Off topic but I bought the RTRs for my car but did not like how they looked. Put them on my buddies 11' 5.0 and they were perfect! Check em out the matte black ones would go SIK! With urz. And I'm not tryin to be an a*# on what I write I just like to see people make their cars their own.

Totally agree with the RTR's they are pretty awesome on this 10+ body style

I would say staggered. The way i drive you need good tires in the rain anyways. New tires every 2 years or so isn't that expensive to keep your car on the road.

Not every car looks great with the bullits though.

Try 255. If you do they might have to be on 17's. I have 17's up front, 18's rear.

+1, I bought my used rims/tires last month. Like 5000 miles on them. 555 front 555r rear...wear is great, traction is great...no regrets! Looks mean, and all complaints ive seen about 275 on front I do not see....I love mine.
