New Wheels for the Ghia

let me know what you think. I'm getting it lowered in a couple of weeks. For those that want to know the wheels are AMG Matrix 18x8" and the tyres are Maxxis MA-V1 235/40/ZR18

Re: New Wheels for the Ghia

Re: New Wheels for the Ghia

Totally agree with you there, even though the Ghia is lower than an XT it still sits too high especially at the rear. I have a set of king springs for it, they will be getting fitted over Christmas.

Re: New Wheels for the Ghia

SWEEEET CAR.
Agree on the size, they look like 17's at best but i guess that's because all you see on MOST BA's is 16's & 17's unlike E-series where after market wheel size looks a lot different to factory wheel size so it's more noticable when someone up-sizes.
They're creeping down in price those BA Ghias. Seen a few under $30k now.

Re: New Wheels for the Ghia

Thanks for the comments. Here's a pic of it with the original wheels.
We bought the ghia secondhand with only 20,000 on it (10mths old) for $30k which was cheaper than some XR6's we looked at. I think a Ghia is good value used at the moment. Don't think I'd pay $52k for one new though.

Re: New Wheels for the Ghia

looks great, lower will look smick, I sometimes think of getting the same instead of the XR.
Be careful in the wet, the Maxxis I had a while ago were pretty scary but fun !!!
