Should I buy these fr500's???

Found some fr500's brand new in box 18x9 in front 18x10 in back only $300..... But I just cant decide if I would like them on my car what do you guys think? They have to be better looking then the wheels I have.

No just the wheels. But in thinking that they are better then the current wheels I have which I dont like much. I was also thinking I wanted the 2010 gt 500 wheels but for this price I may be getting these. I just cant decide.

^Nice I love silver and black.

And I basically just bought them. I just need to go pick them up probably tomorrow. And I will be needing new tires on the back so I will have to wait a month or so to be able to afford them. Here is a seek peek the guy showed me.

Here is my question for you guys. 1 I should be able to run my 245/40 18 on the front still with the new wheels right? I dont see why I couldn't. And then im thinking I will just run 285/35 18 on the back, will this setup work out ok for me? I dont know anything about tires......

Me either, but I have 265/35/18 on front and 295/35/18 on back. Maybe that helps.

I know how you feel. My stooopid warranty comes with a set of tires after 2 years. It was a dealer gimmick to sell cars, "Tires for life" they called it. I just got a new set and now I don't want to buy new rims because these new tires won't fit the rims I want. Lol
