Thanks buddy, don't beat yourself up. I almost went with the rtr's too. I wanted something that not everybody has yet. And almost everyone is rockin the rtr's, amr's, or sve style wheels. Nothing against them, because i love them too. But the '13 GT500's are the shiznet playa. I love them.

Thanks guys. I did consider the Foose also. They're pricey. I liked the ones that are black with the machined faces though.

Yeah I haven't seen a single mustang where I live with the RTR or GT500 wheels. No I have not seen a single 2013 GT500 but that could be the crappy weather.

I was gonna do like you and get the GT500 to be different but I love the RTR rims too much and I gotta like it first haha.

Regardless I am really loving those rims on your car.

If you're looking at something that styles would look at the forgestar cf5v, AM has them in stock.

Smozilla, looking great brother! Nice choice!

Haven't had much chance to do any real evaluation on the tires yet. They have great reviews and I really like the specs and tread design. I think they'll work great. But I definitely will give a full review in due time. Thanks man!

The car looks great but you have to take it out of the garage more often. Bring it to work so I can see those rims. Only thing now is tint, and supercharger.

I saw the pictures on the other thread, nice pics.

AM has some really clean gloss black badges, to remove u can use fishing line to cut right thru the glue... And u would need some goo gone to remove the glue... I would use blue painters tape around the original badge as a template so u can get the new one on straight as it doesn't have alignment pins like the factory badges.

Thanks man, good luck with your stang too. Yeah, it's the matte black badge. When I got it AM didn't have the gloss ones yet. I'm going to swap it out for gloss black soon enough though. The factory one were a ***** to get off. I did the fishing line trick and goo gone but it still took about an hour or two to finish. And my finger tips were killing me. I wish I had done it on a Warner day and maybe used a hair dryer to warm and soften the adhesive first. But I did use the technique gtstyles had mentioned, I used blue painters tape to retain the location for the new badges.

thanks for the tip using the painters tape, my next question was going to be how u got it so straight. I actually like the matte black. I got the satin black OTT stripe so i think the matte badge will flow nice
