American Racing vs American Muscle

Hi folks,
Looking to change out my wheels on my 2014 DIB to the Bullet/torque thrust style wheels, I like the black with polished lip.


I see American Racing has these for about $180
and American Muscle has their own brand for about $100.


So I am familiar with American Racing (have a restored set from the '70s on my old cougar) but I am not sure about the American Muscle. Anyone have a set, or an opinion about them?


Thanks in advance.

So does anyone out there have a set of American Muscle wheels?

There are TONS of AM wheels out there. As to which one is better I don't think I can answer in all honesty

Thank you for your honest reply. I am just wondering who makes the American Muscle brand wheels and are they any good.
I know American Racing well and have a set of 4 circa 1970 on my old cougar.
Thanks


Anyone else know these wheels for American Muscle?

Some people have had issues with AM wheels finish, but typically AM will take care of that. I've had nothing but great customer service from them, but in all honesty some members have had the opposite.

I went with SVE wheels (LMR.com brand) for my Mustang for my track set. Cheap at $179/wheel in 19x9.5, and 3 years later I still love them.

I wonder if the difference is one is imported and one is not?

American Racing is made in China.

I would bet a dollar American muscle is as well, as most/all their brand parts are made in China.
