These seem to be a pretty good wheel for the money and i like the look so am considering ordering the 19x10 (35mm offset) with 285s for a square set up. LMR isnt able to tell me if the FP or factory center caps will work with these. Anyone tried them?

Additionally, if I do lower, i asked them of clearance for 1 inch drop would be ok, and they seem to think so. If i do drop would probably be less than that, but that would be the absolute most.

Any experience, likes/dislikes with this wheel?

I don't have any direct experience, but I have seen posts here that the OEM center caps are a little too small. I think some have gotten them to work with tape or adapting them somehow.

Not specifically to the X500 wheel, but I along with many people on here have ran some sort of SVE replica wheel with good results. They are all basically the same specs and construction, just different visual obviously.

I run a square 19x10 setup lowered 1.2 and no issues on stock camber settings. LMR also has quite a few sales on eBay especially of "display" items for considerable savings. I bought my wheels practically new for just under $600 when they got for twice that on their normal website.

If you're talking about the Ford Performance center caps or the other the other GT350 "Ford" ones on LMRs website, I bet that they would work with it being that it's an SVE wheel. There's pictures on this in the "Post Pix of your S550 aftermarket wheels" thread of people using them in the SVE R350's. Also, I've seen other people on You Tube while looking at wheel reviews who've replaced them on the SVE's.

Thanka. In the website some of the sve wheels have the Ford Performance caps listed on the same page. When i called they said they are guaranteed to fit those wheels but they dont know if they fit the x500. I asked if they had both parts in same warehouse and they do, but couldnt open them to check for me. Bummer.

There is only one way to know. Buy one and give it a shot! Id say there's a good chance that it'll work being that they work with the other SVE rims. It's worth a shot if that's the look you are going for. Good luck!

I think wheels are VASTLY more important than a cheap shit plastic disc insert.
