GT500 style wheels

Has anyone seen a t-bird with the 07ish GT500 style rims from the custom wheel shop? I am thinking about getting a set and would like to know how they look first. I would put a picture on here of them , but I have no clue how to do that. Any help/pictures would be appreciated.

I think the even newer GT500 rims look better. like 2012 model.

Custom Wheel Shop does not sell those rims. You would have to buy them off a Mustang and do a hub swap.

If you go to the custom wheel shop website and look under customer rides he has a pic of bird with them. I have wanted them for years. But, performance is more important to me then style so I will worry about them when I get where I want to be mechanically.

I think it's an ok design but I don't think the style would fit these cars well. They're too busy looking. There's a certain minimalist quality the 07-09 style GT5 wheels have that fits the minimalist MN12 design better(though I do find them a bit blocky looking).
