6 Wheels for Sterling Gray GT Help!

I want my DC 5.0 to be edgy w/Black Sport Stripes & CS Front Facia but got to have some Chrome Accents. Here are my options:
Stock 18" Polished Aluminum or

Chrome GT500 http://customerpics.americanmuscle.com/view.php?sku=28220&sort=0#id=17664
AMERICAN RACING PHANTOM 18x8 http://www.wheelsnext.com/wheels-rims/18x8-american%20racing-phantom-machined%20w%7C%20black.html

I like the chrome Gt-500's, but I also like the 18" polished that come from the factory and they're cheaper too.

Out of your group I like the Black Machined GT500. Black Chrome is cool stuff too and goes well on your sterling gray. Good luck.

I bought the chrome GT500 wheels for my Candy Red GT, so that's my preference. But I also like the same wheels in black chrome or painted black finish.

2011 GT Coupe - candy red, auto, all the options
Mods - Roush supercharger, FRPP Sport axle-back mufflers, Forgestar CF5 gloss black staggered wheels

Are TMS Sensor Kit, Tool, & lug nuts required if swapping rubber from Stk wheels

Do I need to order TMS Sensor Kit, Tool, & lug nuts with custom wheels if swapping rubber from Stock wheels?

You can buy a strap and cradle and re-use the sensors on your factory wheels.

I ordered a set of RTR wheels (19") for the sterling car I've got on comming... more of a stealth look- no chrome.

2011 GT Premium Vert ordered 7/9... arrived 9/21
Brembo, 6spd, HID, Comfort
Sterling with Brick red leather
RTR wheels, hancock tires Ford racing Struts,springs, shocks, sway bar
CHE panhard bar
LLoyd custom mats
Steeda CAI, SCT Lethal Perf tune, Corsa axle back

mmr h5 is my vote thats a very unique&good looking wheel just my .02c
If you swap tires to new wheels you don't need new tpms sensors just rebuild kits, for lugnuts you will need a set of tuner lugnuts which are the small ones as most aftermarket wheels have smaller socket wells. As for the tool to sync the sensors any tire shop you bring it to for getting the tires mounted on the new wheels should have one. I know that all americas tire centers have the tool. Hope this helps and good luck man nice gt btw

Honestly, I dont like any of them. But its your car, so do what you want. I will say dont skimp out on rims. There is a reason those rims are $150/each. If you're going to do it, do it right. Save up and get a good set of forged rims that will last, will have the right off-set, wont chip at the first rock, and will last as long as the car.

There are 10 types of people in the world. Those who understand binary, and those who do not.
