Upgraded Roush Styling
This 2005-2014 Mustang Roush wheel kit gives your S197 the same aggressive looks as the Roush edition Mustang. With a chrome finish, these 20"x9.5" cast aluminum wheels are the perfect compliment to any paint color or body style. The famous ROUSH five spoke design looks great on and off the track, making this wheel a must have for 05-14 Mustang owners! This wheel also features the word "ROUSH' engraved into one spoke for added custom looks.
Hands down yes I would recommend these everytime. The 5 spoke wheel cannot be beat and the overall attractiveness and sleek look it gives is just amazing. Roush has always been known for top quality and amazing performance and design. These wheels capture that. I search for months and months before attempting to buy these. Now I realize they aren't the cheapest wheel. $1680 to throw a set of wheels on a car is a decent amount and you should pay for what you get.
When I first got the wheels I was a little concerned cause UPS delivered and the boxes were in horrid condition, so I was nervous to see how bad these were going to be beat up. Two weeks prior to purchasing these I attempted to buy these wheels off eBay from a man claiming new and about after two months of fighting with him about the condition being in horrid condition it was resolved. Anyway so at this point I was not in any mood to deal with another damaged product. So I open up the boxes and start inspecting. First one looked in mint condition and was surprised and happy. Go onto the next box and inspect it and notice a small ding on the wheel lip and like I said I was just over dealing with CS trying to replace and send back and blah blah crap, so I just shrugged it off. The next box I opened and looked at the wheel seemed to be in good condition. Looking at it closer revealed a bubble in one of the spokes, thinking great my chromes gonna pop and now start pealing. So I press on it with my finger as hard as I could attempting it to pop. Well it didn't pop surprisingly and just assumed it was a bubble from the mold and not the chroming. So I move onto the last wheel, open it up and looks in mind condition. Then I notice a smudge when I begin to wipe it off with a micro fiber. I keep rubbing the area unsure of what it was, because it didn't resemble a scratch. So I look around and notice a longer same mark on the inside of the wheel were the chrome and aluminum cut off. Come later to determine it was not properly coated of bonded when they sprayed it so not leaves a couple marks of hardly any chrome.
Overall would I buy these wheels, yes. Why cause nooooo one makes replicas and I don't plan on paying more for other brands that look similar, but not as nice in my opinion. Am I disappointed in Roush for even having these wheels sent out the door with out being properly inspected. ABSOLUTELY! Took me 5 minutes to inspect all rims and find these areas. No reason this was even sent to me...sometimes I really regret and wonder why I purchase items off line. Word to the wise, buy these in store in your face were you know exactly what they look like before being delivered or put on your car.
