    I bought these off a great guy. Got a great deal on them. I then went to the local tire shop and had them switch the tires on the other wheels. So wheels, tires getting transferred. I have less then $300 in it. I like them a lot better then the factory but the car needs lowered a little I think to make it better.

    Yea...Saleens don't look good on 05+. Body too big!

    But they are in better condition than your stockers. Which looks like someone poured acid on them.

    What happened to the factory wheels to cause that?

    I'd have spent the $300 on having the originals refinished, never been a fan of Saleen rims.

    Much better than before. I know the Saleen wheels aren't as popular on the S197+ cars, but I actually think they look pretty decent on your car. Especially considering that you only spent $300.00 on them.

    put the stockers up on CL and sell them, youll have $000 invested in the swap at that point. I see people asking $300-500 for those wheels (I was looking to put them on my Fusion as they look great on there for an OEM wheel option).

    I don't know what happened to the factory wheels. The only thing I can come up with is that it is either dog or cat pee.

    Looks good. Hold on to the old wheels and maybe re-finish them yourself some day.
