Are American Muscle Wheels as Good as Factory?

I'm thinking about buying some American Muscle wheels. Are these wheels just as good as the Ford factory wheels??

Is the quality and finish up to par with factory wheels??

Anyone have any problems balancing the wheels or finish problems??

I have a set of 18x9 and 18x10 Chrome Deep Dish Bullitts wrapped in nitto 555's 285/35/18 and 255/40/18. i got them mounted and balanced from american muscle. i also got the TPMS sensors installed inside of them and ordered the transfer tool as well so i can switch between my stock tires and rims and these. And coming all mounted and balanced i slapped them on my car as soon as the box arrived, no waiting involved

I have Bullits from American Muscle, and I am pleased with the quality. AM is a great parts seller with excellent customer service, so no problem there.

I just installed a set of 2010 GT style 18x9 Anthracite from American muscle three weeks ago. I love them and think they look great. I would recommend them to anyone wanting to purchase wheels

Same here, you probably got enough answers already, but one more is not gonna hurt. I got my wheels from AM too, very happy with the quality. I got the DD Chrome Bullits/tire package and they showed up within a week. No scratches or mistakes. The car looks awesome now, everywhere I go someone always comments on the DD chrome bullits they really make any mustang stand out.
