Default Wheel opinion for 11 black GT

I'm trying to decide which wheel would look best on my ride.
Shame they don't offer these in a sparkle silver finish, I like the subtle look better than in your face chrome.
I did consider painting some of the black bullitts painted silver but figured the cost would get high quickly.
I currently have 19" wheels, figured I would keep that size.

The current wheels are really the only thing I do not like about my ride.
It makes the car look like a Hotwheels or Matchbox car to me.

I REALLY wanted the chrome Bullitt Motorsports on my blackie but they won't fit the Brembos. I'm a little leery of spacers and I don't know if they'd even work with them anyway. Good luck.

I guess I should have mentioned that I do not have Brembos. Would have been nice but since I highly doubt I'll put her on the track I doubt I will need them.

Man your car looks familiar but I can't put my finger on why. I now have 20" triple chrome plated American Racing Torq Thrust M on my car. Love it. Sorry for the poor pics. I'm at work and they have to be resized

I'd personally prefer most any style chrome 5 spoke wheels. Black wheels are cool up close, but from a distance, it's hard to see them.

Now these are some bad-ass wheels. Nice choice man!

I like the stock wheels, I looked around for a set of those for a while unsuccessfully and ended up with silver RTR's instead.

I voted for the 2010 GT500 wheels! These wheels really look good on 10+ Black Mustangs. I honestly don't think you can go wrong with any of the options you have listed, I think it's going to look great either way!

Check out AM Employee Joe's 2012 GT with a set of 2010 Chrome GT500 wheels. I always really liked this wheel, but his car definitely is a perfect example on how good they look!

I voted Black bullits, those are awesome.

But I actually love your current wheels, I think they are great. Id keep them

I have the same combo that you have with the 19 in option wheels. I can't decide between the black murdered out look or the chrome look. I do really like the gt500 wheels tho.

Yeah I am old school. I remember the Keystones and Cragars everyone was running back in the mid 70's when they cruised down main street. The black just begs for some muscular chrome wheels imho anyway. I don't really care much for my Brembo wheels, they're okay but to me too many wheels that are popular now have a flush fit design and a "spokey" look that I don't care for. Great look man!

I appreciate all of the comments, pics, and opinions.

What if I went down to an 18" wheel and did a 1 to 1.5 drop on the suspension?
Thinking of better ride performance vs the 19" - plus 18" are definitely cheaper on the tires.

Wow, I might have a winner...
A friend of mine sent me an email with a saleen heritage 5 spoke 19" silver wheel.
Anyone have information on these, direct fit and all that?
I apologize if I am being a PITA
