Rim decision?

For my gt I was thinking about getting some new rim but having trouble deciding what ones. I'm down to chrome or black chrome sales a.... OR machined FR500... Ether choice would be staggered. And not sure about 17 or 18. This is how she looks now..

I do plan on lowering but just with ford racing springs because the roads here in Nebraska I can go to low...

I'm a fr500 fan personally. Tires for 17's are cheaper if that makes any difference for you

I like chrome personally. I almost went with fr500, but there are a few stangs around here with them so I went with saleens. And I'm so glad I did. I lowered it and the rims set it off.

Look at come chrome saleens. They would look sick on that car. And when you lower it, that will add the finishing touch you need

Once u lower it you will wanna go lower lol. It's your choice on what you get but if your going to buy springs I'd recommend eibach sportlines. There's a before and after. They worked wonders

I've owned both saleens and fr500 18' staggered. They both look good just really depends which ones you like better.

As much as I like FR's, nothing tops a chrome Saleen wheel IMO. Definitely go for 18's though either way.

I like the FRs because of the deep dish! Lol but sale ends looks sick. I was thinking machined frs500 would look goo to keep the busyness down.

I personally went with Silver FR500s (still waiting on tires). It stands out nicely with the black.

I bought them from a guy around where I live brand new 18's staggered and they were only $300 so I had to get them... Also why I was skeptical I did not think that the grey would look good but I like them.
