I tend to picture ***** my car alot, but here it is again for to help you. I think these look way better than the gt500 reps. They are the staggered premium gt reps.

I love the replica GT500 wheels. But, they didn't come in a size my old tires would fit. So I went with the amr wheels, and I love the look. Ether way it makes the car look ten times better.

Thanks for your opinions! I like how the gt500 wheels are slighgly concave in the rear, if I had the dough I would be buying some vossen wheels, but I dont lol wonder if theres a noticeable differences between 19 and 20 inch amr's in terms of comfort , and aswell as performance?

I think the 13 GT500 wheels would look good on your car.

Black wheels will completely change the personality of your car. Be sure and post pics after you're finished.

I'm lucky enough to have two sets of wheels and tires. I have the grey Perf Pacs, that came on my 13 V6. as well as a set of GT take offs (from Roush). My GT wheels got powder coated black. There's a tread floating around here somewhere with pics. Like I've said several times,the black wheels have really grown on me, much more than I thought.

The 18" GTs ride noticeably better than the Perf Pac 19s. The 19s aren't bad, but the 18s take some of the "edge" off of some irregularities on the road.

Whatever you do, is going to look 10X better than the secretary wheels that you have now.

American Muscle has Tenth Anniversary Cobra wheels on sale right now. $100. They are 18s. Thats what I'd do.

I vote for the am gt500s for a wider tire look if you go with 18s.

I tried to edit a photo to see how black wheels might look like. Each day I swap back in forth between amr and gt500 wheels , so I guess the day im ready to order I'll get whichever im liking the most for that day lol

I got GT 500 wheels for my GT. I put the factory Brembo wheels and tires, on the V6 car and I think they look good. I know a lot of guys don't like the Brembo wheels, so there are probably lots of them out there for sale. The Brembo wheels and tires definitely made the car handle much better than it did with factory Pony package wheels and tires. Something to consider, if you want something different. I also have aftermarket exhaust, and a lot of people get confused as to whether its a V6. or a V8. Just a thought.

Normally I like the brembo wheels but I'd have to say I love them on your car, super clean!!

i have the AMR wheels and love them. they look great on anything...

that said, they are a bit of a pain in the ass to clean break dust off of. lots of areas to wipe down.

something to consider...

11 v6 auto. black.black bbk longtubes/xpipe, magnaflow gt competition exhaust, sct93 tune, Eibach Pro kit, GT break upgrade.

That looks pretty damn good! I want to run 19x10 in the rear. I have a question tho, hopefully someone can answer this for me, im also going to upgrade my gear ratio to 3.73 and heard that shorter wheels help improve the ratio aswell, but does it also further hurt the mpg or will it remain the same pretty much?
