HELP!!! New wheels needed for EBXR8

I just got the nod from the mrs to buy some 17' rims for my car!!! W00t

I just need to know opinions on what to get as I have a strict budget of about $1200 which will have to include tyres. yeah yeah I know its probably impossible but Im gonna try.

My choices are:
AU2 XR copies
ELGT copies
Avantek Blades

Opinions please. I would like to buy today or tomorrow as I would like to parade them for the SA Falcon cruise on monday!

Any photo shoppers are welcome to match some rims up too from the pics I have on my site (click on EBXR8 link below)

Please hurry!!!

ELGT copies for sure! too many running around with s2 XR rims, and they look much better. What ever you do don't get chrome.

I agree...chrome wheels are HORRIBLE!....I would go as far to sya that I hate chrome wheels as much as sparkles hates GT stripes. You would be cleaning the stupid things everyday.

blueoval...you can make any rims chrome if you really wanted to..but dont because they belong on fully sick lancers!

Re: HELP!!! New wheels needed for EBXR8

yeah I agree with ya there FoMoCo, they look da bling blingest moit!

I wouldnt get chrome wheels ever. The closest I'd get to chrome is polished alloy.

I want to know what other option I could get other than the ones stated.

Re: HELP!!! New wheels needed for EBXR8

Personally I think you should choose something different to the AUII XR copies and EL GT copies. I do like them, but they're getting very common. Have you got a picture of the Avantek blades?

Re: HELP!!! New wheels needed for EBXR8

Try a set of speedy spyders - they are a nice rim, but they are also around $300 each which leaves you no money for tyres.

Sweeet!!! I wonder how well that would go down with the cops?

Ive just been to look at a few wheel and tyre places such as:

The used tyre mart. The had a set of 17x8 CSA Prowlers with new Simex tyres, fitted and balanced for $1500 cash.

Bob Jane - Quoted me for a set of 17x8 Speedy Longchamps in the chrome look with sava tyres fitted and balanced for $2100.

They had cheaper rims and tyres there but their really getting a little ordinary for my liking. I might have to up my budget or I might as well buy a set of 15's.(eewww)

I might take my time to look for some decent deals as well as save a bit more cash!

Re: HELP!!! New wheels needed for EBXR8

Simex Tyres = waste of money

Check the trader for some 2nd handers, and I'll let ya know if I hear anything
