Opinions on my wheel candidates needed......

Before I list the final three choices I've narrowed it down to. Be aware that I'm going for a cohesive design.......not just a good looking wheel. My mustang is kona blue. I have a matte black RTR stripe kit on the way, as well as the emblem delete CDC decklid panel, stillen chin, and black billet grille. Feel free to offer opinions offset and width as well. The thing I'm trying to avoid is the rears sticking out past the body.

1. TSW Valencia matte black. $888 free ship. 18x8 +40 front & 18x9.5 +40 rear.
- Staggered Full Set - <br>(2) 18x8 TSW Valencia Matte Black<br>(2) 18x9.5 TSW Valencia All Matte Black Wheels
2. Concept one c8 matte black. $1010 free ship 18x8 +38 front & 18x9 +42 rear
- Staggered Full Set - <br>(2) 18x8 Concept One C-8 All Matte Black<br>(2) 18x9 Concept One C-8 All Matte Black Wheels
3. Godspeed Omega matte black $1196 18x9 +30 front & 18x10 +40 rear.
18" Staggered Stealth Black Godspeed Omega 05-up Wheel Package

With #1 and 3 I'd probably get the rivets painted body color.......as you can tell by now I'm going for an all blue/black theme. Feel free to offer suggestions too. Thanks in advance

I like the first one and the third one but I think the lip is to obnoxious on the third one so I would say first one

Lip on the 3rd one is a tad much. I like the 1st one slightly better than the 2nd one.

The first one. But I would not have 8" wheels on my car, they are tiny on a car the size of a Mustang.

Don't go 18 inch. They look to small. 19 - 20. The concepts look the best to me.
