I need some help with some rim choices

Hey guys! My first post so bare with me Ive had my car for about a year and a half. Loved every bit of it. I wanna take it to the next level and invest into rims. Right now i have the track pack gunmetal rims. I like them, personally one of the best stock rims. But im stuck on color. I really like the gunmetal or silver because of the contrast and it pops. But shiny black also intrigues me. It would really be appreciated if you guys could give me suggestions, or post a picture of what youve got! Thanks guys

Video not working for me either but, only you know what wheels you'll like best. Just google for pictures of wheels on a Mustang the same color as yours to give you a good idea

I couldn't see the picture either and as was said, the wheels are a very personal choice.
Personally I think black...any shade whether shiny or semi...is just over done to the point if I see a car with black wheels I don't give it a second look...IMHO
I love the Brembo wheels and had them on my 2014 TrackPak Mustang. I wanted bigger tires in the rear and considered having them widened although the coast would have been around $400 per wheel and then I'd have to buy new tires for the rear. So...I went with some GT-500 take-offs. I liked the color of the wheels although I would have preferred the color of Brembo wheels.

I agree with others, look at pics online, it?ll be your best reference other than seeing them in person. I?ve seen gunmetal wheels and they?re sharp!

There is always the Boss 302 Laguna Seca style wheel with the split spokes. Mine are OE, so are semi gloss graphite metallic with the brushed outer edges. The rears are 10" wide with the correct offset already dialed in from Ford. From personal experience I have found the gloss wheels do take a little more detailing to keep them looking really nice, as brake and road dust do show up on them much more than on a matte or semi gloss wheel. When clean they do look amazing!

I'm "Old School" I guess. 20" x 10" rears w/ Nitto NT 555 295 x 35 x 20 & 20" x 8.5" fronts w/ 245 x 35 x 20 Nitto 555's. Rims are American Racing Torque Thrust II's.

I would definitely try to find different cars the same model/color as yours with what you are looking for. You can also see kind of what the wheels would look like through some of the online viewing apps.

I'm a big fan of the RTR Tech 7's - but my opinion might be biased.

I chose RTR Tech 7's because:

  • They are the lightest wheels you can buy without breaking the bank (24lbs)
  • They were in the width and height I wanted (19x9.5 Front, 19x10.5 Rear)
  • I liked the styling

If you really like the rims you have why not just have them painted or powdercoated whatever color you want? Will be cheaper than buying new rims... like $80-$100 a wheel for a good shop to do it. Mine were $125 per wheel and that was with a LOT of repair work on a few of them.

I try... not to mention an OEM rim vs a LOT of replica rims is going to be way better quality and a good shop will put a much nicer finish on them than the Chinese finishes most of these rims get.
