    I have chrome staggered 17 inch 03-04 cobras and they look great but Im looking for something different. The Rovos Durban look good pretty good but $2100 for wheels and tires are a little out of my budget. Im mainly wanna go away from the same fr500, bullitt, saleen, and cobra choices. They arent bad choices. Im just wanting something different. Mystic isnt a very common color so the photos ive seen online have just the same ole wheels on them. So mystic owners especially chime in with some thoughts. There is one choice by Varrstoen that im digging in 18x9.5/10 staggered. They are $740 shipped from them directly plus that cost of rubber. Other than that, nothin is really leaping out at me. Another option is staying 17s and keep my tires since the backs are brand new and the fro t have lots of tread left..

    I think gunmetal or silver with a polished lip look good on mystic. But that's just me. I also like 18s on our cars but 17s still get the job done. I almost picked up a mystic and I would have thrown on my silver fr500s but the sale fell through. I told myself awhile back i would never buy a set of fr500s unless they were real ones and. Well. I got real ones so I'm the same. But I'm also different

    I guess on 18s I'd need to go with 265/285 on a staggered set? I know it's probably not ideal but some 295s or even 305s get extremely pricy. the ones I'm looking at are machined face with a basic 5 spoke design..

    they are $740 for the set directly from Varrstoen with free freight.. I'll have to shop for tires.. I know they are cheap but some sumitomos may have to do for now..

    I saw one at a cars and coffee that had black ccw's on it. Gloss black centers and flat black barrels. I was surprised how good the black looked on a mystic.
