    Hey guys, my buddy just offered to buy the bullits off my car for a Ranger he picked up today. I still have the FR500's I got last year that some of you may remember I tried to strip the old paint off of...well half the paint is still on em and I can't get em in a sandblaster around here so I've decided to sell them as well to another guy that wants them. So if all goes well and I sell both sets of wheels, I'll have around $700 plus some in the bank in case I decide on a more expensive set of wheels.

    Ive always liked the FR500's, polished Terminators, and a few multi spoke wheels. But I really don't know much about any more outside the box types of wheels. I don't really wanna spend much over a grand if I can keep from it. I already have tires, 255/40/18 (I think) and 295/35/18. I definitely want as big of a lip in the back as possible as well. So I'm not sure what offset would be the best.

    A part of my really still wants to just get FR500's in either black or anthracite...there may be a thousand SN's with those wheels but they are still my favorite wheels.


    Sorry if this is a little vague too, I guess just need to see some pics of some cars with different wheels than the norm.

    Love these wheels, think they are HRE's which probably means they are out of my price range. Lol

    See I love those wheels but don't really care for the stepped lip that much, it would have to grow on me. I kind of like the new SVE series 3 wheels too and they have a solid lip.

    You can get the Vordovens in 10.5 and I think the hyper black looks killer on them.

    This is gonna be a tough decision no matter what. I don't wanna get some multi spoke wheels and decide I really don't like em as much after I get em....but I also don't wanna get FR500's then wish I'd stepped my game up a little more.

    judging by the offset on that front wheel i'd say that has to be a photoshop lol.

    those black spoked sve wheels look really good though man. i think you'd dig those

    Hahaha yea I noticed that after I put my contacts in this morning. If I was gonna stay wingless forever I'd go for some 18" bullits and trim my Sportlines a little bit, but I do plan on getting an S281 eventually.

    It's just one of those situations where there are only like 4 other SN's in town that are modded at all, so mine already stands out.....but do I want to go the extra mile and make it really stand out or just stick with my first instinct from when I bought the car, which was slammed down on staggered FR's with a Saleen wing. Decisions man decisions...
