Default Pulling the Trigger Tomorrow

Folks, I am ordering some wheels tomorrow morning and need your help on deciding between two good looking wheels. I have a performance white 2013 GT with the track pack option.

Choice One: SVE Drift Wheels

http://www.latemodelrestoration.com/...E-Drift-Wheels

This is the expensive choice but I like the width of the wheels. I however cannot reuse my pony caps from my current Brembo wheels.

Choice Two: Black Ford Racing Track Pack Wheels

http://www.latemodelrestoration.com/...ck-Pack-Wheels

This is the choice I'm leaning towards. It's the cheaper option and leaves more money for lowering. I can reuse my current tires. This is basically the wheel I currently have but in black.

What do you think folks? Other mods arriving are window louvers and the GT500 spoiler pre-painted from American Muscle.

I think $1,000 is a lot to spend to essentially change the color of your wheels. For the money I'd rather go with a very different rim and distinguish the car more.

Hmm, interesting take. Thanks for the input. I actually like the look of the Brembos wheels, but I guess I should stop being a cheap *** and get the SVE's.

choice 1 would be my choice. I didn't even find it a hard decision.

Another option would be to paint your Track Pack wheels black. It would cost a lot less than getting new wheels. I doubt that it would cost more than $100/wheel to get them professionally painted with good product.

Assuming I go with choice number 1, do I need to pay the $200-300 for the tpms kit. I'm going to have the dealership install it. They can just use the old ones right?

Here's the Track Pack wheels with the TPMS. It seems like a pretty good deal at $899 and free shipping.
