I'm kinda 50 50 on this... but I ordered new rims from American muscle... and they screwed up my order and instead of sending me the all gloss black fr500's like I wanted they sent me the black with brushed lip.. do you think they will look good? Or should I go through the huge hassle of trying to return the very heavy mounted and balanced rims..

It's the mach 1 FYI

Keep them! I think they look so much better than what all black wheels would look!

I think it depends what you really want, if you want the all black then return them. get them to have UPS pick them up from your house or something if you need to return them, it's not your fault.

I agree it looks great with those wheels! The mix of black and white that is already present on the car is kind of carried out between the center of the wheel, the lip and the tire so it flows pretty good!

Polished lip will look much classier.

If you want something aggressive looking, send them back and get all black.

I think the fact that they are all staggered is going to make the world of difference.. but a side note.. there isnt anything that is gloss black on my car, all the decals are matte. So maybe all gloss would throw it off.

Id go with the All Matte Black style. Like you said, the decals and spoiler are Matte.

or keep the polished lip ones and if you want them all matte black once in a while you could always dip them.

I like the Matte better than Gloss. I feel it looks more sinister that way. But Im partial to em for a reason. :D

And yeah, Id PlastiDip em too. That way you can change the look up from time to time. Also I think the Black Honeycomb Trunk Panel would look great on your car too.

Or you can just plastidip the centers. That way you have matte black Fr500's while maintaining the polished lip for extra baller points. Win-win.

Black with polished is soooo played out. I think the all-black gloss would look much better.

.02: All black wheels always look dirty especially an all flat black wheel. White is such a clean color, why put a dirty wheel on it?

If your OK with the ones AM sent you, maybe they'll refund you some of the money so they won't have to pay to ship them back. It's worth asking anyway. $20/ wheel maybe?

My Matte Black wheels dont look dirty all the time. Honestly, they get dirty less than my Polished lip Gunmetal FR500's did. Those polished lips always did attract gunk.

That might work

When I bought my headlights from them and mounted them a little tab broke. I called them up and asked how to go through the return process... They offered me like $60 credit back... So it was like a 40% refund just so I was happy and they didn't have to deal with shipping out new ones and being stuck with used ones.
