    Still decideing on new rims, I've finaly made a decision on the Black FR500's over the Chrome Saleens but then came accross these rims that are being sold on eBay but by a company that is actually from around here so I can just go and pick them up. They are a set of Black Deep Dish MSR 088's. They're 19", yes 19inchs, but before you say anything, I have a picture of them on a stang and these 19" rims imo don't look too big and actually look nice. The deep dish is real deep and the finish looks real glossy which is a plus....

    And the kicker is, they are lighter than the FR500's and weigh 208lbs with 245/35/19's all around while the FR500's weigh in at 236lbs with 265's up front and 285's in the rear. That's 28lbs of extra rotating mass that would be robbing my torque compared to the MSR's. My car is stock slow already to begin with :( NOT ONLY THAT, but the size of the 19's 245/35/19 will actually be more closer to the stock 17's diameter size

    Stock.............245/45/17 = 25.7 inches diameter
    MSR 19"..........245/35/19 = 25.8 inches diameter
    FR500 18x9......265/35/18 = 25.4 inches diameter
    FR500 18x10.....285/35/18 = 25.9 inches diameter

    So I dunno. :dunno: What do you guys think judging based on looks, performance, and overall? Oh, and the MSR's are a perfect 19" size for my stang so it won't be an issue, 19x8.5 with 24mm offset. The reason i'm talking more about the MSR's is because some of you guys might have never heard of them and I know you already know all about the FR500's which are bada$$ aswell of course.

    I like the 19's but what is the width on them? I would hate to get a new wheel and still only have a 245 width tire...thats a waste.

    i voted for the FR500's, just because they r a bad ass rim *hands down*

    IMHO, the MSR's look kinda ricey, and a 19" rim doesnt look very good on sn95's

    the width is 8.5, but again, they weigh a total of 28lbs lighter with the tires than the FR500's and my car is stock except for Green air filter, o/r H & Mac catback. I'd be staying with 245's, but i'd be goin faster. So I don't know. I want the FR's for wider tires, but i'm sure they really won't help me much since my car is basicly stock. My tires don't loose control with the 245/45/17's I have now at full throttle, so i'd really just be adding weight. But I don't know, this is why I can't decide :-\

    im gonna agree 100% with that statement
     
  14. I like the FR500s better myself...

    Old, simple, classic design for the most part... I like the wheels that have more of a classic mustang design... like bullitts and FR500s and many others...

    I think the rebels have too much going on...
