Got a set of 18x9 FR500s. Werent really looking for a set but got a ridiculous deal on them yesterday. Car looks pretty good I think but I think a chrome or polished wheel pops on this color. Wheels are for sale if anyone is interested lol

I think it looks great, nice grab indeed. Only thing I'd change/add is a rear spacer to make the rear a little more flush.

I loved the old ones better. The chrome just made the car pop.

Yea I agree. Plan on selling the FRs and getting chrome or polished saleens. And I meant to ask you, what's your opinion on polished wheels? Aren't yours polished?

At first I wasn't a fan of them but they've really grown on me. They're easy to clean and maintain. Whenever I want them to shine I just grab some aluminium polish and steel grit and go to town. Chrome seemed like too much work for me to keep clean so polished was the next best thing.

If you lived where there was snow you'd hate a polished wheel. :p The road salt kills a polished wheel. Admittedly once I find me a Mustang I will not be driving it in the winter unless my DD or the wife's car breaks down, but I will never own a wheel I have to polish again.

Well, this car doesn't come out in the snow/salt, and rarely in the rain so maintaining polished wheels isn't too much of a concern

Looks great! I think the car would benefit from some dish in the rear and about an inch drop all around but that's just me.
