Only problem is, I'm not sure if I like those rivet/bolt looking things on the back of the wheel. They have 18" wheels like those that are smooth but I don't know if it's worth 700 extra bones for that...

When you have the $$$s, go for yhe 18"s. But, when you like one's comfort get the 17"s!

The rivets dont have anything to do with the price, its the size difference. The rivet things are generally a sign of a 2 or 3 piece wheel. On cheaper wheels it may be added as a faux 2 or 3 piece, i dont know hamman wheels as well as others, but i know they are good and im sure they are not fake rivets.

The seller is a good seller, i would buy from them...

Either would look very sweet, 17" would allow you to do more with your suspension, ride height, etc.

I know they're not fake rivets... I'm just not sure if I like them or not.. I do but then I don't...

My car was already lowered when I got it... I have on standard 15's right now and my wheel is about 1 inch from the wheel well... So I'm not sure if 18's would work...

Thanks for the input guys...

18's will fit, just kind of restrict driving HARD w/o many mods to the suspension...

i wasnt questioning your ability to identify fake rivets, the way you initially worded the post, it sounded like you were saying the non riveted wheels were more expensive because they were smooth, not cause they were bigger, my bad...

forgot to mention... your car is sweet! I'm not sure if I'm going to buy an m3 front body kit yet or have the guy that is doing all the body work on my car, remove the horizontal plastic bars from mine and put a mesh grill in there which would make it look similiar to a m3 kit. He said he would for it about 200... but your car looks great.

I think hamanns are nice but there are definitely nicer out there. just remember that a lot of people have hamanns, so they won't look unique. But I like the Hm2's better because they are a really nice smooth 2 peice wheel, and the fully polished lip makes it what it really is. The Hm2 without the polished lip isn't worth that kind of money, IMO.

Thanks. I'm gonna post some pics in the showroom if i can ever stop ordering shit for it (I've got a german plate, Kamei headlight eyebrows, and interior pieces on order).

I bought the grill mesh for 12 bucks and just popped the bars out myself. Using pop rivets and the factory plastic nipples around the opening, i just popped it in myself. Of course that's with a different front bumper, i dont know if the bars are as easily removed on the oem bumper, but either way $200 seems a bit high!!

For twice that, you can buy the M3 bumper with the eurogrill mesh preinstalled!!!

It is my understanding that the Mustang also has a 5x120 bolt pattern and a similar offset. I think you should be original and go for factory ford wheels.
