Need opinions on Wheels please

Hi everyone would like to get your opinions on what wheels would look best on my Grabber Blue GT
BTW i have 18" FR500 on the car now

Going for 20" Black Wheels and have narrowed it down to two choices

20x8.5 Black FR500 Front
20X10 Black FR500 Rear

or the same dimensions with a concave look Black

Thanks for your opinions

I like the style shown in the second and forth pic more. More info on those? Prices? Vender?

I know it's hard to do with a staggered setup, but I can't stand those wheel combos where the lip is smaller on the front than the back. Works on a race car, but looks stupid on a street car. Just my .02 cents.

Can't agree there at all. Works on race cars and street cars just the same.

If you're going to go with black wheels it really doesn't matter what they look like, because from 20 feet away they all look the same anyway.

(Hey ... you asked for opinions ... :p)

I used to think that too, but black wheels have grown on me. I would prefer if they made a dark grey though.

Sometimes you just don't know what looks good till you see it. My buddy has a red Vette with gold wheels, looks sick. But then again, all classic Ferrari race cars were red with gold wheels too...

IMO that is what makes the wheels. So, YES, you want.
