    Those are the wheels im planning on buying next spring. does anybody have any of these black chrome or hyperblack wheels on any car? I've looked almost everywhere for pics of them on a car. I've heard the finish sometimes isnt the best but im thinking these on a black car will look sweet

    I say get Hyperblack. Hyperblack is the same thing as Hypersilver, just different names for the same thing. It looks better than standard alloy rims, and less tacky than chrome. It's worth it, just make sure the finish is made by a reputable manufacturer, and in the replica case - it should be.

    Do those saleens come in 17"? I don't want to lose road performance.

    But man, I've been searching every mustang thread here and the corral and I've yet to finalize a decision. This is hard, lol.

    Does anyone know what the "average" price for a rim is? I really don't know what is considered cheap, a bargin, or expensive. And those FR500's do they come in a polished silver color? I'll post a pic of my car once I find it, maybe that might help the process of finding a rim that looks good.

    Thanks for the help guys, I appreciate it, I really do. :)

    Chowder Head I found the website for AK tires, but the link is dead. Since they are right next to where I work, I will stop by today and make sure they are still open.

    Clean the wheel wells up...paint them black. Put some tire shine on the tires. Put some nice dark tint on the windows with a strip across the top of the windshield. Got some smoked light covers AND :Teh-Win:


    When u do a car like that it ONLY looks good when its CLEAN. Dirt can ruin it sooo easily.

    Damn, those Fahrens look sweet as well. I was also checking out the Koing Villian's (anyone got these?) they don't look half bad either.


    Now after really looking at the FR500's, I'm starting to dig em.
    Of the rims listed here http://www.mustangtuning.com/fr500wheels1.html what do you think would look better on my car? Not the best quality but here it is.

    I'm thinking either the chrome, the silver, or the anthracite ones.

    MustangvertGT, can you post some more pics of your car. I'd like to see a nice straight on shot of the side, I'm thinking of getting black bullits with the polished lip, and my car's red also. Thanks a lot man.

    One more question. When a rim is "deep dish" does that mean it's sorta pushed in farther on the rim itself?
