Always loved the classic Bullitt-style wheel and even though they haven't been too popular on 2011+ models, I still think they look great on the few examples that I've seen. For instance, they look killer on YerBuddysPony's GT. Was considering these for my 2013, just for a different, classic look.

You guys think that there are fitment issues that AM should know about? Also, are they heavier than stock?

I think Mangarr has told AM about his issues. Mine were really too old to complain about. They work for me, but I'm with him...I wouldn't recommend them. At least in an 18" version; maybe it would be better in a 19 or 20, but I don't know.

I've got new wheels coming, but not because the bullitts don't work for me. It's just time to change the wheels since I've used them for a long time. I'm actually going to miss these wheels though.

17s on my 2011 V6. I like the old school meaty tire look.

Wheels are from America's/Discount tire. Pony OEM center caps are from eBay. I don't plan on lowering it at all.

Factory 18's. Took them off the factory rims and threw them on these then back on the car that's all that's been done.
