Default Show Me Some Wheels!!

I might make a move on some rims.

I'm very torn between the following combos:

1. 17x9/10.5 Chrome Bullits with 275/315s

or

2. 18x9/10 Chrome Saleens

I really like the look of the deep dish Bullits with 315s out back but I think the 18" Saleens are more refined. Are the 18x10s with 285s out back as wide as the 315s?

I'm pretty well set on chrome. I think it will look the best on my non-DD, black GT.

BTW, it's race day, so GO CARL!!!

Not a fan of chrome. But it looks best on black... as for it being race day... I live 20mins from "the world fastest half mile" I hate race traffic

I vote for the Saleens also. I rock 18 X 9 out front and 18 X 10's in the rear.

just went picture crazy, but you get the idea. If i were to get another set of wheels i would buy fr500's. you see a lot of mustangs with bullitts but i love the chrome especially with the dd

edit: this is the tire sizes you said too, so its the setup you want

Thanks guys.

Soldier - do you have some closer pics of your rear tires??

Either combo would be better than the stock wheels, but I want to make sure I get it right the first time and don't have any regrets.

Solider- you have any problems with your rear wheels rubbing? What size tires do you have? And are your fenders rolled?

Yes my man big problems. I run a 285 outback with a 1 inch spacer. Spacer wasn't cheap it cost me a 140 bucks (very good quality). I'm looking to get my fenders rolled this summer..This is how she sits in the rear.
