Should I ditch my 2007 GT500 wheels for 2010 GT500 wheels?
Alright here's the deal. I'm buying a set of wheels regardless for a set of track rubber (auto-x), but since I've got brembo's that does limit my wheel options a tad. Now, I've got 2007 GT500 wheels on my car now. I like them, they look pretty damn slick, but for some reason, I just don't feel them as much on a 2010 body style as much as the older body. Part of me was thinking about snagging up a set of 2010 GT500 wheels and using those for my street tires and using the 2007 wheels I have now for the track rubber. It would be SLIGHTLY cheaper then the other wheels I'm looking at, Steeda Pentars. But, the GT500 wheels are quite a bit heftier.
I don't really CARE what my track wheels look like, I mean, as long as they aren't steelies, I'm good.
So I dunno, lighter wheels for the track, or a set of wheels for the street that I think fits my car better and cheaper overall. My wife seems to think think that the 2007 GT500 wheels look better, and that she'd rather have me spend more money. I don't think I've EVER heard her say that about my car purchases before. I may need to get that in writing.
For reference, here's my car now. So you be the judge.

I like the 2010's GT500 wheels, but my opinion is bias. The 2011 Track pack wheels (take offs) are 19's front and 20's rear. I would love to move to those, but they are a little more expensive than the ones I have now. You can however order them just in 19's but would rather save $ with buying them from someone who just doesn't want them.
