Looks real nice there Jamie, yeah it's amazing how going an inch bigger on rims changes the look of the car. Your rims are definitly unique which makes your car standout.
I'm beginning to see that my rims are way to main stream as everyones got them and even fitting them to older falcons.

On an unrelated subject, how do you go with the pager alarm?
Haven't really driven the car anywhere yet, just around the block. I might be imagining it but the steering feels a little heavier. I always thought the steering was too light so I'm happy with it.
There was plenty of room at the rear, could go bigger again! I noticed though there isn't much room at all at the front between the inside edge of the rim and the suspension arm. I remember that there wasn't much anyway with the original 16x7s.
They are 235/45/17 at the front and 255/40/17 so there is only a thread depth between them. Shouldn't put the speedo out.
