Default Rims For my Crown Vic

I need some help choosing which rim to go with. there are a lot of choices so I thought I'd ask what you guys thought.

Most folks are telling me to go with the 03 cobra rims, but after some research I learned they weigh 26 lbs. The Bullitts only weigh 22 lbs. the FR500 I could not find any weights on. But so you guys can get a better Idea on what these rims look like on the car, I have some pics from other Crown Vic owners

Well this is a hard one for me since a crown vic isn't quite the showier type of vehicle...but I think just to go with simple and clean maybe some cobras? I think the FR500s are too edgy and overdone for a vic, and the Bullitts would demand so much attention on a vic body that I think it'd look off. But I don't know...that's a hard one.

Or you could go with the older saleen style wheels with a DD in the rear.

I dont think the FR's look good at all The ones I think look the best by far are the 05+ Bullitt's

Or....... marauder wheels.

Chrome 18" Bullitt's. 18/9" front and 18/10" DD in the back. Big car needs a big meaty wheel.

PS. that white Vic is one of the ugliest things I've ever seen. Why doesn't he just get a Mustang? I mean seriously, Mustang chin spoiler on a Vic? & the badges are just funny..
