As if we needed another wheel question

I'm on unfamiliar ground for a while having bought my most recent Mustang, a 2012 Shelby GT500. I've had several Mustangs in the past but the last one was a 1992 5.0 LX. I don't like the wheels that are currently on the car I just bought and would like to buy a set of nice polished Aluminum wheels for it. I don't mind paying a premium price for quality wheels and would like some recommendations please. Since I'm having a new set of Michelin tires mounted, I may as well have them mounted on new wheels.

What sizes are you looking to do? There aren't many polished wheels on the market, unless you go custom. Also, what's your budget? If you're thinking polished, I have some U.S. Mags wheels in mind for you!

Help. I own a 2015 GT. Current tire size is 255/40ZR 19". I dont know what the stock width is in inches, but I would like to go wider (maybe 10" to 12"?).I want to purchase some new rims. However it seems all the rims I like are 20". Can I put these 20" on my GT? I have not done any suspension or lowering (yet - maybe later). What other modifications or "spacing" is required to do something like this. I appreciate any guidance with this.

Contact Need4Speed Motorsports. If you want OEM look but wide wheels, they offer multiple different GT350 style replicas in 19x10, 19x11, 20x10, 20x11 that fit our cars perfectly.
