GT rims on AU XR

I'm a novice at this, so I had a photo of my AU 3 XR6 with a BA Pursuit in front of it. Thought I would give it a go doing one of easier jobs and that is a rim change. Just took the rims from the BA and put em on my car. But it wasn't the greatest of jobs cause you can see the front rim is a little square at the bottom. Anyway, my first attempt. Maybe I might try changing the colours of the cars around

I can tell you now, that you've done a good job! It wasn't till I looked what forum I was actually in till I realised that this isn't a real car, but a photoshopped one.

Re: GT rims on AU XR

Hmm, I actually like the look of the GT rims on the AU. Anyone running this combo?

I'm in 2 minds. In some shots they look good, but others not so good. I'm gonna leave it to good old heads and tails.

I think they don't look too bad. I haven't yet tried the other rim that are on the gt's.

I'm hoping that I'll have these wheels on my XR in the near future, but not sure. Just gotta keep saving me pennies

Wow, I think the BA GT wheels look better on the AU than the BA.
