Question [POLL] What rims would you put on an AU1 XR6

Well I am going to change the S-Series rims on my AU1 XR6 soon enough and I am contemplating 3 choices which I am listing in the poll.

AU Boy, check my wheels photo on the Gallery.
The style is a little conservative, 5 spoke but are very nice
Discontinued model however, Speedy didn't sell too many of them

I reckon Ford need to get wise - ie. because most people piss off the factory rims straight away, instead of wasting time and resources designing and fitting factory mags they should push the cars out with just 15" steelies and 185/15 Bob Jane Alrounders on them and reduce the price by say, $1000.

OK, well that'd be a fantastic way to drastically reduce sales and get incredibly bad reviews in just about every motoring publication there is! BTW, i would say 9 (or more) out of 10 late model XR's i see would still have ford factory mags.

Exactly PigDog! While quite a few XRs have huge diameter (and sometimes very RICEY) wheels, lots of them are owned by family people who leave them pretty standard. Polished versions of standard wheels have also become very popular.

Yeah, and imagine the reviews of an XR6 / 8 with 15" or 16" steel wheels!!

I was actually being a little tongue-in-cheek there:bs6:

On a serious note tho - Ford do seem to have finally come up with designs that are worth hanging onto.

Hey - I think there should be the option to have a the XR's with 15" stocky rims.

I know a lot of people who change the rims, and rip out the stereo within a week of getting there cars...
