rims for my AUII



Looking to drop it as low as I can go and get 18" [extremely] low profile tyres.

Firstly, still looking around for a decent set of rims. I love these rims currently.

Anyone have any suggestions on things which would make it look sexy? I'm going for the sexy/sleeper look, not the XR8/GTP look. Only exterior plans is to do this lowering and rims, then maybe a bodykit not including spoiler to keep it as low as possible.

If someone does have suggestions, I would love a photochop on it :)

Thanks


edit: I know that pic is crap. I'll take some nicer ones tomorrow night.

Hmmm....the T3TS50 front bar, side skirts and rear bar would be nice (even without rear wing). Then throw in a set of the T3 five spoke wheels....not too over the top I suppose.

Re: rims for my AUII

Monaro rims on a Falcon - please don't do that! They look similar to the ROH Fury though - which are a very good looking wheel but almost every second Falcadore has them these days.



If you go 18's, the standard tyre size is 245/40/18 and the tyres run out from around the $300 mark ++++. 17s can look just as effective, and tyres are around half that (from about $180 on). Of course, if money is no object, then follow XTS220 advice and get your bum into an XR8.

What he said^^^^^^ I found out the hard way, and Falkeen did, and no doubt countless others! But spending money on a car is not always about resale - some things you do for love (or mental illness - lol).

Re: rims for my AUII

If you love your car, money doesn't seem like an object! Hell, to think all my wages go towards my car (and drinking!), yet resale will be woeful.

I think she will look sweet with a subtle kit and nice wheels.

Check these pics out:



Horn! That's exactly what I'd be doing to an AU.

What Xrated has posted is a picture of a genuine T3 TS50 without the rear wing.

Re: rims for my AUII

And don't forgot the twin 3" tips (at least) at the rear to fill the arch.
I'm using a twin 3.25" round tip on mine and it's almost filling the arch...anything bigger you'll end up introducing too much heat to the area around the arch...hence lead to possibly melting that portion of the rear bar??? Dunno how true that is.
