Choice 2
Should I get the the black polish w/ chrome lip Tork Revo from wheelsnext
I like these over the HP evo. If you look at them closely you will see that it has a 5 spoke base and 3 different 5 spoke patterns in one rim.

19x9.5 front and rear with 275/30/R19 tires

I keep on switching choices I can't make my mind. What are your views & opinions?

Without seeing your car or knowing what you have I like the Revos personally. I think you're overanalyzing it though. There is no 3 5-spoke pattern though, its a standard split 10-spoke wheel.

I like the TTM 17's mainly because 19's are way to big IMO.

17 inch wheels are too small on our large cars. 17" just fail my wheel size to car size ratio, 19s look perfect. From what I read they may not be good bargain.

I like the TTM but they are not offered in a 19 inch diameter. Since the rim is black the diameter needs to be larger.

Does 10mm, going from a 40 to 30 ratio tire, really make that big of a difference in performance vs. stock?

17" = :zzz:
18" = :bored:
19" = :nod:
20" = :|
22" = :rolleyes:
24" = :laser:

MY car must just put everyone to sleep then :rolleyes:

19's look great but you sacrifice a lot, tires are ridiculously expensive, same with 18's. I prefer 17's. Id go with the TTM's

I think the TTM's look alright but to me they look way to much like a mustang bullitt wheel

I hate rims with rivet things. TTM is my choice.

TTMs would be great in an 18 or 19... I'd go with the Revos

You and zlover have chrome, unlike black rims they look better in smaller diameter. Black wheels need to be slightly larger.

Tork! They look more exotic. I think the TTM's are overplayed now. But what do i know, i still roll on stockers.

definitely the torks, too many people have tt2's and the torks look badass

They are actually polished aluminum, not chrome. I wish they were chrome so I wouldn't have to polish them all the time. They are for sale too!

yea, mine are also polished aluminum, but ill take that as a compliment that they were mistaken for chrome ;) And mine are 17's

Personally...it's a tough to give a recommendation because I'm not really down with either of those choices.

I'd definetly lean towards the TTM's, but I'm not totally down with getting a wheel that looks almost exactly like a factory Mustang wheel

As for the Revo's, in my opinion 19's are a tad too big for my tastes...I think 18's are perfect!
