haha thx for the input, but maybe i should clarify...I am pretty set on black and red rims. they arent very common, so i'm trying to see if anybody knows a reputable place to buy some from since most major places like AM and LRS doesnt carry them

Most of us mustang guys and gals prefer more muscle car rims that aren't so flashy compared to the ones your looking at. Bottom line get what you want, its your car and you need to be happy.

thanks man. the thing is, there are so many stangs out there, i want mine to be unique. im hoping to end up with a car that looks great and is completely different from any other stang. I suppose if i dont like them, I can sell them and get a more typical set, but my bet is that I will end up liking them. and thats really all that matters. if other people dont like it, thats ok.

true, it does. and it looks good, but there are thousands of other stangs with bullits. there wont be too many with the rims i want. maybe because people think they look awful, maybe not.

Thing is, Mustangs are the most highly customized cars on the road. Chances are anything you will do will have already been done by someone else. Not saying yours won't be unique.. But you should more or less consider what you'd like to walk out your grit door and see sitting in your driveway. Everyday I walk outside and see my car I smile. It's gorgeous to me, although nothing "unique" has been done to it, really. And I still break necks when I drive by people. Haha.

Point I'm making.. Don't do things to be unique, do it because you want it!

P.S. since I got my car back to Baton Rouge, the two local yellow stands have painted theirs like mine and got the body kits, and one has similar rims now. Haha.
