    Default Help with wheel choice?

    Which set of wheels would look best on a 2006 GP Base?
    Two of these are stock mustang takeoffs and the third is an aftermarket set:

    18" Stock


    19" Stock


    20" Aftermarket

    As far as style I would pick the 19" style, but I personally wouldn't go any bigger than 18"

    If tire cost is something you worry about, the 19's will cost you the most lol.

    Much as want to vote 18s (and theres an easy way to put Pontiac centers in those), and as much as I also don't really care for black wheels, I'd go for the 19s.

    To each his own, but in my opinion. I'm with him.
    Black wheels are hard to make look good. They have to be the right style with supporting exterior mods, the car has to be the right color... Most of the time they look bad.
    p.s. I have black wheels.




    Those 18's probably will look best, and be the cheapest to wrap in rubber.

    I like the style of the 19's, but tires suck for 19's.

    Those 20's probably belong back on the Dodge Charger srt someone made the mistake that they looked good on in the first place.
