    I prefer the Rs, Don't like black bullitts. The bullitts looks better form wise.

    Thanks.I didn't exactly pick em. I got them the same way as my cobra rs. Super cheap and I had to jump on them. I was about to order some new fr500 18s but this way I saved over 900$, and can get a small cowl hood
    Now to really change the stock look

    I think it looks great!

    I was never a fan of the 17" 95R's.

    2 are pretty much brand new with minimal damage. The other 2 is terrible and has no shine to the chrome. Which is why i only took pictures of the my passenger side.. because it had the good pair lol. I took all 4 off my 97 red GT that went up in flames so they were in a fire. I probably plan on keeping them though since its all i could savage from my burnt vert.

    Throw some all season or winter tires on them in case you have to drive it in bad weather. Its nice to have a spare set.

    Never really liked the Rs on an SN but I LOVE them on a Fox. Not a huge fan of the bullits either but those deep dishes are a different story entirely. Look like a completey different wheel.

    I hate cobra rs but my buddy has deep dish gray with chrome lip cobra r on his fox and i swear that's best looking wheel I seen a fox. The deep dish change the entire look of a ugly wheel. So I agree!!

    Yes thats a different story! I have seen 18" deep dish in dark gray with the rivets and they were really nice and I don't usually like rivets.
