Honestly, I hate chicanes and classics. They're too busy for New Edge bodies.
I love the classic 5-spoke, but my favorite wheel ever is BBS RK series. Unfortunately, they were discontinued 6 or 7 years ago. I have an all time favorite, but the price keeps them to a select few owners.
Anyways, TF victories are sexy. Don't buy real Saleens because the finish peels off. Cobra replicas are always nice, but they're cheaply made and kinda suck...I can't wait to ditch mine.

They're not "bad" they're just REALLY heavy and the finish is starting to peel after 2 years
Don't get me wrong, I adore these wheels, they've been on all 3 of my mustangs, they just don't last very long. That's about par for a cheap (meaning <$300 each) wheel though. Especially a cast wheel.
I highly recommend a forged or TRUE 3-piece wheel if you can afford it. I only bought these cobras to ditch the stockers while I save for Fikses.
I'll likely have these for as long as I have the GT. No sense in putting $5,000 worth of wheel and tire on a $7,000 car.

I say no rivets. They make the wheel look funny, like you're trying to rub it in everyone's face that you have a 2 or 3-piece wheel.
I love hidden rivets that are on the backside of the wheel.
Again, just my opinion.

So would you recommend me getting them for a dd? i can get some for like 115 a piece for fronts and like 120 for rear. I need wider wheels so i could get these.

CCW Classics or LMs > All wheels. Or Weld RTs if you're looking at a bigs and littles setup. The 03' Black Cobras with chrome lips on AM look great and are cheap if your on a budget though.

About $1,200 each for the ones shown. That's technipolished Profil 5s.
Pretty much any size you want.
Fikse Profils are the highest performing consumer wheel on the market.

I respectfully disagree, I love those wheels for that fact that they are 2 piece and have a massive lip in the back and front. I like their style as well.
