New Wheel Opinion

Hey, I am looking to replace the stock bullitt 17X8 wheels on my 03 Sonic blue vert GT. Looking to go staggered, and staying with 17 inch in a 17X9 front and 17X10.5 in rear. I am favoring 3 different types at the moment, and would be interested in other opinions. Thinking about setup in following wheels:
1. Bullitt deep dish anthracite
2. 03 Cobra chrome
3. Cobra deep dish

Attached are stock photos of all three. Thoughts?

I thought he was asking about those three wheels up there. In that case I would choose the 03 deep dish cobras in crome black

Out of the 3 Im partial to the deep dish bullits in anthracite. Deeper the better. The deep dish Cobras are nice too. The 03 Cobras are my least favorite. Just dont like how you cant really see how nice and wide the rears are. Deep dish gives you a more agressive look when lowered. The Bullits are on everything but I guess its cause they look good, haha. Or go for something different thats what Im trying out on my 03, MMD 551C wheels staggered 18s.

As you can see Im a fan of Bullits.

Out of what you suggested, number 3...I see you have a Mach I theme going on tho and not a lot of people know of these rims, but AFS Wheels has replicas of the factory Mach styled wheels in 17X9 and 10.5" with either grey or black edges:

I agree, what looks good, looks good. If the MMDs dont look good on my 03 I got them so cheap I can sell them easily and even make some money on them.

Those are nice too. Ive always loved the Mach wheels. There used to be a member who had a white Mach his name on here was Slow4V I think, he had a Mach style wheel but it wasnt OEM, just a little different and I really liked them.

It looks like Lmr only has the black with chrome around the edges and not the full black. Any idea where they would sell those?

If I owned a new edge, wheel #1 would go on there without a doubt, wouldn't care if I saw 10 mustangs on the same street I live on with the same wheels. Best looking wheel for those years period. Wheel #3 is a very close second.

Agreed. To me you cant beat a nice set of deep dish Bullits on a 94-04 Mustang.

Not the best pic but it looks good, needs a little drop too and it would be perfect.

Also check out OEwheels.com if shopping for any of the common reproduction Mustang wheels. They are a little cheaper than the other usual Mustang vendors. They most likely come out of the same China factory the AM wheels, SVE wheels come out of. I have a staggered set on my 96 and they are very nice quality, have had them for almost 5 yrs and no issues with finish etc.
