Well,i bought a set of Saleens for my girls car for xmas and i never should have put them on mine. I bought them used so i just wanted to make sure, they were balanced up and didnt vibrate or anything. I was completely against all black wheel, but thats what she wanted and now that i see them on my car, i now want a set.

I may sell my FR500s and get a set of these. Or maybe a black set of 18' FR500s.

The best part about the 18s is how my 4:10 gears pull! It just feels completely different and doesn't want to spin every single gear.
Highway cruising at lower RPMs is a MAJOR PLUS also.

What do you guys think?

LOVE. IT.

You now see my dilemma... haha. I want to keep them and i probable would but they are all 18x9s. My set would have to have a 10' in the rear. Ive got 1/4' spacers on in these pics to compensate..

I think they look good but there is no way those look better then the FR500s. Silver looks way cleaner. The black just looks dirty and bland.

Im not dead set on black. I'm not even set on the saleens. They look good I think. What I really want is a set of 18s. I may even get the same anthracite FR500s but in 18" because I like them so much. But I'm still liking these wheels. Have had like 3 compliments since I put them on today. Ha.

watch out, once you go black, its really really hard to go back.......

I like them better on your car and I normally am tired of them.

Honestly I like the Saleens better. They stand out and it seems everybody is Rollin on FR's at the moment.
