Shelby wheels

In my hunt for wheels for the interceptor build on my 2012 v6, I came across a guy who has a 2008 gt 500. I am trading him my wheels (20" 2crave no5 + delintes) for his wheels (stock gt500 + bf goodies) I dont know how I am going to go about painting them. I want them two tone and have been thinking of plasti dip to start. Also. One of the 4 has slight curb rash. Should I bother taking it to have it fixed or just wait to buy another. I probably won't have them more than a year as they were not my first choice. High 5 for good deals though. You gotta love CL.

If you're going to replace the wheels in less than a year, I would just rock em as is with the new paint. There's no point in putting extra money into fixing a wheel that you won't hold onto.

What color scheme were you thinking of?

Personally I see nothing wrong with the ones you have on your car now. I say stick with those for the year until you get what you really want.

Well. I drove 3 hours and met him at les Schwab only to find that my rim won't fit with brembo brakes. I guess it's a sign. I wasn't going to swap to the brembo setup until next year so I will wait on wheels a bit longer. Gears, exhaust and louvers next.

Except that they are deep dish 20" baller wheels, no they are a decent overall design.

To me, it's still over rated when you are going to dump money in to them even if plastidip is cheap. Since this time next year you will get rid of them anyway, I say just wait until then. But that's just my opinion

I agree. In the mean time I could do several other important upgrades. Gears and exhaust. Thank you!

Just bought the car in may and I'm a full time student. Im not buying rims, just looking for a straight across trade. But yes, from what I have read and what I have experienced with the stock gearing this year model 6er is in desperate need of new gears. I deserve a slap for waiting almost 2 months to order the parts.

Chrome wouldn't match the color scheme though.

That would have been a cool color scheme for you ride. I always like seeing some type of styling on the unique side..

Since these wheels won't fit your brembo's, what style are you going to look for now? Have you checked the selection on our AmericanMuscle site?

Yea. I like the matte black 2010 gt500 as well as the Laguna seca wheels you guys have. I am a broke college student however so shelling out 1500+ is not feasible.

Personally, I think the Laguna Seca wheels are awesome. I love the split spoke style and I think you could do some clear custom painting too.

I hear ya on cost, wheels aren't cheap. Although, do you have our AmericanMuscle Forums Discount code yet? It's a 6% discount code that you can use on all of your future purchases with AM. The code is exclusive to active forum members with 50+ posts.

Just in case you don't already have it, I just sent you a PM!
