Help decide wheels

Well I have been looking at rims. Seems every one is going with RTR rims on t he new 5.0's. That or every one is picking the same wheels as every one else. So I am trying to find something that will look good but yet not be same as everyone.

Also Not sure if I want to keep the car murdered out (last wheels was black)or change it with some polished or chrome wheels.

Also not trying to go broke on wheels. I have enough in this car now with every thing done or parts on the floor. HAHA

Either way rims will be 20" staggered set up. 8.5 front and 10 rear.

#1


#2

#3

#4

#5

#6



I am also open to other idea's if don't think these will look good.

I've always liked the RTRs lol. From this list, I'd go with #3. I definitely like the staggered look though.

Re: Help decide wheels

I like the first and the last (but the spokes on the last look straight dont like that)

whats your budget? if you want to be much more unique you may need to spend about 600 a rim~ but its not THAT bad as they keep their value reasonably well

Mustangs Unlimited has the Brembo Wheels in Black Chrome. They look sick. They might have them in 20 inch cause they are a aftermarket wheel. Check out their website

with or without tires? if its without tires then you have tons of options out there , if with tires then you are around 1500 for rims and will have to get a one piece probably which there are tons out there of but just saying

I went with what I have and they are two piece welded and in all aluminum (just polished). Chrome was heavier and more expensive etc, all those finishes just add onto the price.

Re: Help decide wheels

number 1, 3, or 5 you can't go wrong, want a hint of chrome but maintain overall look black go number 3 or 5 murdered out look #1. I personally like the way the black creeps up on the chrome on #3's spokes

Re: Help decide wheels

Well things went better I will be going with a black 19" stock looking rim. 19x8.5 front and 19x10 rear. I got the rims new for under $500. I couldn't pass it up. Still need tires but i have already found the ones I will order. 255/40/19 and 285/35/19 Hankook Ventus V12 EVO K110's. Tires for under $750 a set. Total invest under $1200. Basically will use for winter driving.
these pictured are just 18's. and the car isn't lowered.


PLUS!

I will be picking up a set of Black RTR rims and tires that have about 1000 miles on them. Rims are perfect as well. Whole set for $1200. This is if everything goes right. Guy message me on S197 cause he knew I was looking for rims. He just went with a 20" rim. 8" front and 11" rear. He will not be selling these for about 4 weeks.

Just like you said everyone is going with RTRs. I think you should just do what you like regaurdless of who or how many people are running them. Afterall you are the one that is gonna look at it everyday. RTRs and the Boss both look great IMO.

Re: Help decide wheels

What sucks is I will really have street tires for no reason. As I run my bigs/skinnies most of the time. That way I am always running my DR's and ready for whatever. Oh and its on.
