Another rims thread...

So as I wind down and tackle the last few items on my car, one of the things it is in NEED of is a new set of wheels. Because these V6 PP ones aren't cutting it for me.

So I have been back and forth (appreciate everyone's thoughts that I asked already). I have narrowed it down to 2 sets of rims.

2013 GT500 Rims - Hyper Dark:
Hyper Dark 2013 Style GT500 Mustang Wheel - 19x8.5 (05-14 GT, V6) - Free Shipping

2015 GT PP Rims - Gloss Black:
Black Performance Pack Style Mustang Wheel - 19x8.5 (05-14 All) - Free Shipping

The reason I am going 19x8.5 is to reuse my existing tires (255/40/19). They still have alot of tread left. And I am limited to $600-$700 because this is a late bday gift.

I love the 2013 GT500 ones but the only one AM now sells at 19x8.5 is the Hyper Dark ones. I have never seen these in Hyper Dark, but I have seen other rims in Hyper Dark so I have sort-of have an idea. Plus I THINK the 2013 GT500 OEM ones do come in Hyper Dark. But I am only 40% sure of that. lol!

The 2015 GT PP ones are aggressive imo and look nice. What also makes them a great choice is they are in the 4th of July Sale for almost $150 a rim. Plus with the Forum code it is less then $600 for the entire set! Which makes my wife happy since she is buying them. lol

Does anyone have any thoughts or ideas? I looked at alot of other brands but wasn't really a fan. I was going to get AMRs but as SoCal mentioned, they are a bit overplayed.

I plan on pulling the trigger on a set tomorrow or Friday.

Yea. They are the 2015 design but the set AM has is designed for 05-14. Giving us other models a chance to sport the newer ones. I think all I will need is a new set of lug nuts.

Seems like a waste of money for you to buy a set of stock like rims the same size with no stagger in my opinion. I would ask if you could apply that along with a Christmas gift and get a staggered set or a better lighter wheel set up. Your stock wheels are no worse than any of the ones you mentioned.

You want to spend 600-700 bucks on rims, don't forget you can sell your stock ones for that same amount give or take. So get a set worth having for 1500 and sell yours after and put that back in the bank.

Well, will 255/40/19s fit anything else besides 19x8.5? I can always replace the rear tires in a few months with better ones if I can get away with my current ones for a bit.

They might stretch out onto a 10" rim but why not just get the rims you really want and get tires when you can afford them? Having them pulled off your current rims, then mounted on another set and balanced is also a waste of money if it's only temporary.

I dunno man. It's your car. I'm not trying to hate on your ideas. I'm just of the opinion or mindset that you do things right the first time. You don't want to kick yourself later when you are re-doing something you already did.

Well I got a local shop that will mount them and stuff for cheap. So I don't mind that too much. They are pretty much doing it for free in a couple of weeks if I get the wheels put on when they repair the body damage on my car.

So you think they will be ok for a 19x9.5? Because that is the size of the rim/color I really want but don't want a blowout. lol

Here is what AM recommends for a 10" wheel

275/40

I'd say your 255's will be fine temporarily. But it's probably going to look a bit weird.

I wouldn't buy a set unless it's an improvement. And in this case that's a staggered set up unless you are getting a bigger rim or lighter rim.

According to TireRack.com, the typical rim width range for 255/40/19 is 8.5" to 10".

Well with Sterling Grey and the black accents like the hood vents, side mirrors, and rear decklid, I might go with the 2015 GT PP style rims. Plus no one else has them around here on a 2013/2014. So it will be unique in a way.

Have to agree with the Sterling Grey and black. Also, unique is always nice.

If I had blue, red, white, or something else, then I would go with Hyper Dark. But to me it has a smidge of chrome feel. And I don't like too much Chrome unless I am putting 22s on that ish!

Not a chance. I took off my 18's with less than 1000 miles on them. I thought the same thing so I started at 600.00...ended up selling them for 300.00. There is little to no money in used stock wheels.

Correct. and since I will be taking off the tires and possibly the center caps, they will be worthless. Maybe $100-$150? lol

Not for appearance package 19" wheels. Also, sell them separately so those people who need just one after they curbed one of theirs. Gotta know the right way to sell certain things. I think your rims are worth more than the ones you are looking to buy unless you go with a stagger.

Kevin, you can EASILY get 125-175 a wheel on eBay. Or you find the right guy locally and easily get 450 for the set.

That's because no one wants the bottom of the barrel 18s

Also, you have to keep in mind what people are willing to spend in other areas. For instance, you could get 400 for X item cuz mofos be straight ballin in your area. But in the Barrio where I am, i could be lucky to get 200. Different markets also impact us.

Hell American muscle sells the TPMS set for freaking 225 bucks I believe. Selling them at entire set for 300 bucks is the "get these out of my life now" price.

Kevin, I'm telling you sell these separate with the tires off in eBay and you will make most of your money back. Keep the boxes your new wheels come in and ship these the same way.

If you hate yourself sell them all for 200 bucks. Lol

Go staggered and don't look back. Sell your stocks to get some money back. You'll love them, and will hook better. 19s will be more expensive tho.

Save up and ball out on a staggered set of some vossen's, velgen's, or rohana's.

I bought a cheap AM staggered setup and eventually sold them and upgraded. They just didn't have the concave like those premier brands

I got the 2015 GT PP Style rims. They are about 28 lbs each. Is that good? Someone weighed the V6 PP ones with the tires and they were like 60-62 lbs.

On the heavier side but about as good as you're gonna get unless you fork out $$$ for light weight wheels. I believe those are lighter then the tp brembo wheels. I've heard they're about 30 lbs each. My 19x9.5 on 275 40 bfgoodrich tires weighed 60lbs a corner.
