    I would not recommend AM/AMR wheels.. There have been several complaints on some of the other Mustang forums about poor quality in addition to wheels being out of round..

    IMHO I would stick with name brand wheels such as Forgestar, Velgen, HRE, Niche, Ford Racing, Roush and Steeda..

    I have a brand new AMR wheel and tire package for sale. 8.5 x 20 fronts 10 x 20 rears charcoal with the Sumitomo HtrzIII 255-35-20 front. 285-30-20 rears. Literally 5 miles on these. I put them on my Saleen and look really cool but I liked the Saleen look better. Just paid $1400 for these. $1200 will buy them.. I can send photos. Thanks

    I have the AM 7 spoke silver saleens and one of the wheels took 4 ounces of weight to balance. A Tirerack article mentions adding no more than 1% of total wheel & tire weight to balance the wheel which makes 7.5-8 ounces the acceptable limit. As the tire wore I have a steering wheel vibration that developed and I'll need to get the wheels balanced again. Jury is out on the trueness of the wheel but any issues are probably from me driving on it. I wouldn't write off AM wheels just yet.
