Flat Black Wheels for 2011 Mustang GT?

Im looking into buying wheels and everything that isnt a knockoff is ridiculously priced. Anyone with experience with knockoff wheels? Cruizin Concepts in particular. Any feedback on good/reputable sites to buy wheels from? I just had a bad experience with Blue Oval Industries and dont want repeat my mistake with another company.

Anybody here with flat black wheels? Im curious to see how they look on a 2011 (sterling), being that the paint job is so glossy im curious how flat black wheels would look, or if maybe i should go gunmetal.

Find the wheels you want, find the cheapest price you can on the internet... go to a local tire store... Big O, Discount, Hebdon whom ever is a chained tire store in your city... see what their price is, see if they will match it... It is easier to return defective produces locally than shipping it back to waldos wheel and tire emporiam...

I don't speak often but when I do, I don't have clue what I am talking about. I just repeat things that I once heard and do not repeat them correctly... My doctor told me it was an ID 10 T problem and it was incurable.
So when I reply to a post or add to a thread I just find the words elsewhere and copy and paste.

Those wheels are absolutely sick. The black would look amazing.

Just a side note, we have the gunmetal ones on a crazy 15% off blowout sale, if you're interested.

I have the Brembo package, and like the wheels for the street, so I just painted them matte black. My car's white, so I'm currently experimenting with thin white pinstriping around the outer edge of the wheels. On white at least, the matte black looks really good, and I like the white striping up close, but from a distance it makes it look like I have white-wall tires.
The only complaint I have about these wheels is their weight. I haven't weighed 'em, but just R&Ring them I could tell they've got some heft. Unless the stock tires are the problem, but they'd have to be run-flats to make that much difference.
Perfectly fine for the street though.

Do you sell the TSW's in a complete package in 18s? I would like to do the stagger look on mine, 10s out back, 9s up front. Please let me know, I am ready to pull the tigger. Are these the Matte Gunmetal ???

I saw a car at Carlisle (I believe the Pypes shop car) with the RTR's and the rears looked like they stuck out a little too much. The RTR that was there didn't have that problem. Then I saw a Yellow Blaze 2011 at the Evolution booth that had staggered diameter TSW's that looked perfect. They basically copied the SVT wheels with 19" up front and 20" out back. Looked sick.

American Muscle sells the TSW nurburgring which is nearly the same wheel but they aren't nearly as concave as the RTR.
