Fr500 rims, can't make my mind up

Ok, I have a 2003 Black mach 1 with AFS mach 1 replicas in 18". I like them, but I like the look of the FR500's a lot better. Anyone have pics of their FR500's on a black mach 1? I have been looking at the Hypercoated ones, as well as Anthracite, and also the chromies. Just can't make my mind up. I def. want 18" rims though. I like the way they fill the wheel well up better and I don't want to lower my car b/c the roads around here are CRAP! I've even been looking at the black fr500's with the chrome ring around the outside which would look good on my black car, but might be too much black. Opinions please! Thanks.

Dennis

Re: Fr500 rims, can't make my mind up

I too have a UA, and you won't find too many with black FR's on a black Mach. Most prefer chrome or black chrome, or whatever. I did a poll on this a long time ago, most don't like black on black. I personally love it. Not full black like a 04 Cobra rim, black/polished lip it what I love and will get. But I am still searching for a lightweight wheel that is black/polished lip that is not over $1k a wheel, that is not on every Mustang out there. Hard to do. Those FR's plus added tire weight = more rotational mass = not what I want. Not that I will ever autoX, or that I currently drag (will hopefully soon), but added weight = bad, and is a concern of mine. Most don't care about the added rotational mass either.

Re: Fr500 rims, can't make my mind up

I've been thinking about black chrome FR500s on my white Mach. I'd REALLY like some black chrome Mach wheels though.

Re: Fr500 rims, can't make my mind up

Yeah, I really like the Anthracite or the Hypercoated. I'm actually into AutoX and I'm not really concerned with the rotational mass of the wheels. I'm not looking for gold medals and sponsors, just fun and looking good while doing it. The black fr500's with the chrome ring look really nice, but I think it's too much black on black. So who has pics of a black mach with anthracite or hypercoated fr500's. Preferably with 18" wheels and stock ride height. Once again, I don't want to lower the car b/c the roads where I live SUCK! Thanks for all of the advice and input.

Re: Fr500 rims, can't make my mind up

I had a Black Cobra with Chrome Y2Ks and it looked nice imo.

Black on black still makes me think of a car without hubcaps.....Growing up without money makes you appreciate shiny....ha ha

Very true, guess that's why I like chrome too! ****, well guys, it's either between chrome, Hypercoat, or Anthracite.

Re: Fr500 rims, can't make my mind up

i have the black chrome fr500 on my black mach and i love them. i get complements on them all the time. The only thing I don’t like about them is that when they are dirty they look just like normal chrome.

I think i would love those as well, looks like I'm going to start saving my pennies. I'm going to need tires as well, any recommendations? I go to the strip, autox, and daily drive it in the summer. I had a set of goodyear GSD3's on my 00' GT, loved them, might go with those again. Let me know what you all recommend.

Re: Fr500 rims, can't make my mind up

My Bias not-with-standing

Sinister look on black go with Black Chrome, then Black with Machine lip.

I personally like each finish we carry on a Black Car. I like Chrome, as well as the Sliver. I like Anthracite on just about everything out there.

If weight is an issue as well, remember our 17x9 Fr5's painted are 20lbs on the nose....
