American Muscle deep dish bullitt lip

Hey all, I was looking at the Deep dish bullitt wheels at American Muscle and noticed differences in the machined lip. To me, it looks like most of the older customer pictures have a lip that has a hard edge. And alot of the newer pictures have a more rounded lip. I was wondering if they've changed their rims? Or perhaps some of these customer pictures were uploaded by people that have deep dish bullitt wheels made by someone else. So, if anyone has recently bought these wheels from American Muscle, I'd like to know which lip your wheels have? Thx

i bought the chrome ones last month. I have gotten my front ones and will be getting the rear ones next week. So far the front ones have the rounder lip.

hard to speculate but the ones that come from AM have the stack racing center cap. So unless the other guy put a different center cap in they could possibly be a different brand

We had to switch suppliers for our 18" Bullitt rims a while back, which is why there are two different styles shown under the customer pictures section. The current style is the more rounded lip, rather than the more angular one.

Thanks Emily...

Thats too bad, I like the older version much better. Just wondering, how come 17x10.5 was never available for 2005+?

I agree, that newer style with the rounded lip looks cheap and less aggressive. Thanks for noticing, I'd never have noticed that and been disappointed when they arrived. I wonder do the American Racing Hot Rod Torque Thrusts that the TireRack.com sell look like the older style Bullitts.

Take a look at the American Racing Torq Thrust M's. Looks to be a stronger edge from what I can tell.

That's the one TireRack.com is selling..."Hot Rod Torq Thrust M". Looks cooler than that rounded edge and the dimensions read the same as the 18" deep dish Bullitts that AmericanMuscle.com currently sell. Were the offsets for the old AmericanMuscle.com Bullitts different from the current models? It's too bad AmericanMuscle.com changed their styling.

I have actually read on one of the forums, that someone had to replace an older style AM 18in bullitt wheel and they purchased a Torque Thrust M and it was identical. The person said it even came in a box with the same type of packing (I think they said the boxes were even the same?) and the only difference was the center cap that was shipped with it?
