Help: Wheel decisions..

I apologize before hand if this post is in the wrong area, I'm new to forums in general and not yet sure on where to post things.. I'll use ignorance as an excuse this time. I really need help on deciding what type of wheels to go with, and not the basic bullitts or AMR's, I've been searching for a couple of months now and can't find anything that catches my eye. I'm down to trade/buy as well, but budgeted at 2.5k.. I have a 2008 Mustang GT, I'm open to any ideas.

You own a mustang so its gonna be hard to find much that isnt common. I just bought a set of sve drifts and ive been thoroughly pleased with them and the whole package ran me just under 1200 but they're similar to the AMRs so you probably wouldnt want them. The sve series 3 wheels look good to me, but they just released so theyre a little pricy, but ive also always been a fan of vossen cv3s but their minimum size is 20"

If you want some wheels that are going to be different look at Enkei wheels. They make a great set of wheels that are rotary forged and light weight at a pretty decent price. Few Mustang owners on the street have them.

Here is my car with the 18x9 Enkei PF01s:

You guys need more meat. SVE drags, 17x4 up front and 15x10 in the back. I think I paid around 1200.

If you've been looking for months and nothing has made your boat float, I doubt you will get much help here. But I am partial to the Godspeed Omegas.

Im partial to the sve drifts version since you can run a square 18x10 setup unlike the amrs and the drifts are more concave.

I was actually looking at a pair of SVE's from a guy on craigslist, he backed out last minute of course. They are nice wheels and not as common as AMR's, but I've looked around some wheel's like the HRE S101's caught my eye, I've been searching for something since then that are similar to them.

Might be replying wrong, I'm not sure haha, anyways. I would love a drag set up, but it wouldn't be practical seeing as this is a daily driver. I need something that won't slide it's ass off in the rain. Oh how I wish I could run that set up

I don't know the SVE Drifts just look off to me. They kinda of look cheap, "I don't know how to describe it. Plus I am going with 19" since I found a great deal on tires.

Trust me I'd love to run a drag setup, but it's not practical for me since this is a daily driver. I'd love some HRE S101'S or CCW's but that's too rich for my blood. I've been looking for some wheels that resemble the S101's, but if there are any offers on wheels I'd be glad to look at them but I am budgeted around 2.5K. Something that resembles these wheels

I was actually looked at the SVE 10th anns. But wasn't sure if I could pull them off, but I think I found what I want, does anybody know of or know how to photoshop, I know this is a shot in the dark. Just don't want to regret spending money on something I won't ultimately like since it's hard for me to save money currently. D:

Their actually knock offs of a set of HRE and BBS wheels and I'm sure half a dozen other wheels before that.

I also have SVE Drifts and well:




There is nothing cheap looking about the Dark Stainless wheels until you get up close and see that they are painted but at least the paint doesn't look poorly applied.

Those are 18x10's with 285/35/18's all the way around. At 24lbs and as cheap, it was a no brainer to buy them!
