roush vs. amr

I'm lookin at new rims and I think I want 20s but am worried about the added weight causing my car to be slower. does anyone know how heavy the roush 20s are compared to other 18s like amrs? I was looking into forged rims also. I like the look of 20s the most. thanks in advance.

I'd also like to know as I'm thinking about running 19" AMRs up front and 20s in the rear a-la the GT500...

I know the 20s will be heavier but I doubt by much.

Amr 18s are 24 lbs and the roush 20s are 34.1 lbs. is that a big difference?

Not sure how big a difference 10 lbs per wheel will make, but you gotta remember to take into account that not only is the car working harder to get those heavier wheels moving, but the brakes will also be working harder to stop that additional rotating mass.

I understand. I jus don't wanna ruin any performance for just a appearance. do you think forged wheels are worth the extra coin?

Forgestars are some beautiful wheels, I have a set of the F14's, user alrefire got a damn good deal on them.

I love the center cap in the picture. That is the only thing that I don't like about the wheels, very little options for center caps.

F14s. Be aware they no longer 100% coat the entire lug area. Completely dumb.


They supposedly weigh around 25lbs but a you tube video shows the 18s at 18.4 and the 20s at 23 or something.

They weighed about the same as my stock 18s and they look sweet. I was just upset about the lug area but I called them several times and got the same answer. AM checked their inventory and said it was true and I got 2 wheels out of 13 that were coated all the way.

No regrets other than my bank account took a huge hit.

Here a shot after I hurt my hoof but you can tell where they didn't finish the lug area. Garbage. Alefires are all good. Oh well. Unless I point it out nobody notices. I may tape off and dip the lug area at some point. They still look BA.


From forgestar.

Hello Josh,
The 20x9 for a Mustang roughly weighs 24.5lbs. The lug holes are always powdercoated but depending on the depth of the lug holes they may not be able to power the entire lug hole.

I'm looking at the mrt or whatever the brand AM carries. Gonna get them with just the blank red on them. Looks less ford fan boy/ ricer like. I'm not a fan of brake lettering.

Something else to consider when buying 20 inch rims; the stock rotors and brake calipers look very small, and give the car a "cheap" performance look. Those that admire your rims will smirk at your stock rotors and calipers and wonder why you skipped this detail.
