confused

Hey I love all these face options.

Anyone seen some nice wheel designs that would suit XR AU models. I like the wheels on the Xplod show car. They are a Kahn rsr wheel that is sold by Herrod, but these are the only aftermarket wheel I have seen fitted. Anyone else see something that looks good?

The T series rims are 18" azuro(?) ROH rims I think.


Is it possible to go from a 15" rim 65 tyres, to a 17" rim 45 tyres without affecting the speedo etc?

cool

Yes it is. Most places that sell tyres have charts showing what tyre goes with what wheel to keep speedo happy. My spare is only 15 " and I am reasonably sure it is 65 series rubber.

Read in wheels that the designers at Ford are fighting the engineers over how low the Falcon will ride and how big the wheels will be....
Lets hope for a change that the engineers don't win (like on the EF....) and we get some Falcons with nice large wheels and a low ride height.

I think Ford have learned a BIG lesson from the AU Falcon.
Having Holden hand them their arse on a plate every month hurts us blokes, so how does Ford feel. Pretty embarrassed I'd reckon. I think the Falcons we'll see from now on will be great looking cars (they'd friggin better be anyway...)

Thumbs up

Hey thanks J-Type - that looks great!!

Glad to see they are still thinking of using the quad style headlights at the front - an XR trademark!
