Help choosing new wheels

First of all, Happy new year to all of you

I have been looking for wheels to my 2013 candy red mustang and I always wondered why most people go with the drift style wheels like amr's and rtr etc. I like these wheels and was planning to get 20" charcoal AMR's, but I also like the DF5 wheels which is basically the exact same style as the vossen CV3. So what would you guy pick AMR's or DF5?

The DF5 is a damn good looking wheel, but my vote would probably have to be the AMR. The finish looks kinda "meh" on the website, but having seen some in person they're actually a very nice rim for the price.

I'm a little more Function > Form (dont get me wrong though, i still want to look good) so my deciding factors would be:
Weight
Width (what tire can i put on there)
Price

Should help kind of break it down when using some sort of "objective" reasoning.

Ok thanks and do you think that the staggered setup is worth the $200 more. The car is my daily driver and I don't race. The wheels are mainly for looks.

I went with the DF5. Wheel replica has the matte black on sale.

Your driving a sports car, focus your attention on performance. Weight & size of wheels and tires are relevant.

Sorry for the late response, forgot about this thread. I personally prefer a square set up so i can rotate my tires and they'll last longer.
