-5 spoke/split 5 spoke(no lip)
-5 spoke/split 5 spoke (dip dish lip)
-more then 5 spokes/no lip
-more then 5 spokes/dip dish lip
-BBS mesh style
-chrome
-black
-silver
-gun metal
-black with polished lip ETC. (NO FORGED OR 3 Pc WHEELS)

I need them to be correct bolt pattern (5x108) and fit the look of the car

what about gold with diamonds and flashing neon lights behind the rims. orrrr maybe something off a new dodge charger? orrrr you could just turn on mtv/bet and see what kind of rims are the most popular there? orrrr you could just paint the rims you have bright orange. or you could just get the ones that you think look good that will make you happy. is that a little crazy?

Not crazy at all, and whatever we like he's gonna order what he likes anyway (as he should). I don't think he listened to the opinions on what color he should have painted it either. lol

Maybe he just likes to see what everyone else would do first, just so he can do something different...?

First set looks more custom, second set looks more Mustang.

I like first set, second P-shop.
