Stump,

Remember we do offer Price Matching! We take great pride of our wheels so I'm confident you'll be very happy with them. On top of a great product we offer all of our wheels with a lifetime Structural Warranty and 2-year finish warranty!

Let me know if I can be of any assistance!

-Dan

Do yourself a favor and just order from AM. They have pictures that show the wheels exactly as they come, they have customer car pictures, they offer price matching, and have free shipping. Trust me. I have a set of 20" Bullitts from Cruizin Concepts sitting in my garage unused and mounted to tires because what was pictured is different from what they actually sell. The wheels on my car are from AM and I couldn't be happier with them. Even if it costs you a little more coin, consider that being for a little peace of mind and knowing what you'll be getting.

To answer your question about the differences: offset, lip size, center hub size, lip edge, and spoke size and curvature are what varies from manufacturer to manufacturer. I spent 5 months trying to figure out who to order from and here's the conclusion that I came to:

AM sells exactly what's pictured. Most everyone else uses stock photos and orders from 5 different manufacturers/suppliers. If you have more questions, shoot me a PM.


Also, I should note that both Dan and Shane at AM have made an effort to help me resolve my issue with the other set of wheels from CC. I contacted several companies seeking advice and of the few that even responded to my emails, AM were the only ones that actually did something to help me out. If I have to spend a little more to get something from AM, I'd still do it in a heartbeat just for the customer service.

285/35 is closer to stock thank 285/40. onlinetires.com had them Nitto's for $190 a piece and $140 for the 245/40. I went to discount tire and had them price match and installed in hours.

How do you figure. Those tires will be over 1" shorter than all the other tires he's looking at. Aren't the stock tires right around 27" tall? 285/35's are going to be less than 26", 25.85" to be more precise. I think that would look way funny wih such a tiny back tire.

stock on my gt according to tire rack stats was 27.1 inches and i put on 285/40/18 nitto's. i've seen 27.1 to 27.3 in height same size that came on 1st gt500's in the rear. this is my 1st choice. 275/40/18 too short for me, even if you are lowered.

I agree with purchasing from American Muscle. I think I purchased the same ones your looking at, or similar, from Cruisin Concepts. They took longer than expected to arrive and took calling someone multiple times to receive any information about the shipment. I'd go with AM as long as it was the same rim.
