XLS V8 Ute

Hi i was thinking of maybe getting an XLS ute with the V8 in it, and putting a set of Fairmont Ghia Wheels on it, with the Faimront Ghia Parking Lamps and a Chrome Grill, what does everyone think????

Also could someone maybe do one up with the wheels atleast in Photo shop?


Thanx

Why not. It will be alittle different from you average BA ute. Depends also on whether it's a pla thing or a work ute too.

I don't think that Fairmont Ghia wheels would suit a ute. I'm not sure about the optional 17" either, but maybe they might be a better choice.

They would look good. but you're better off getting after market wheels IMO. If you get standard 16"s, you can sell them as anyway and get money back. Then either spend the extra money on some really hot wheels or just save the money alltogether.

Yeah i dunno, ive got a thing about not liking after market wheels, but yeah i think the XLS ute would proabrlyh look better untouched.

I see on the website that you can order it will optoinal colour coded door rubbers, im like why dont they make that an optoin on the XT sedan.
