Opinions

Ok guys, I have to make a decision pretty soon on which wheel to go with. Currently I have the Boss 338s that were delivered to me with some minor defects. I have the option to return the wheels and get a new set but it will be about 3 weeks for the rear 20x10 wheels (backorder). Should I stick with the Boss or order the gloss black 20 inch FR500s from a local distributor? Below are pics of both wheels. Thanks guys! By the way, I like both styles of wheels a lot

I love the look of the fr500's and if the boss's have minor defects (not sure what type) but if it's like small cracks or somethin it could become worse. So I would do it safe and right the first time with either wheel you choose instead of rushing. Just my 2 cents. But yeah the fr500 is my vote!

Defects are minor scratches on the polished lip. The seller sent me blemished wheels by mistake so he says. He will take a return so its all good. Now I have a decision to make

I will make it uneven. I like the fr500s better. Whatever you go with though is going to look good!

Re: Opinions

In my opinion the fr500s are so common everybody has them so I would go with the boss they are a much better looking wheel but that is just my opinion.

I say get the boss. They are common just like the 500s as they look like black billets. But they look better then the 500s.

I am actually even considering the Anthracite with polished lip FR500s. Maybe they will stand out more than the black
