I don't think so...

My rule is old wheels on old cars.....

15" alloys are pretty cheap...

Agree, I used to think they looked ok in photos, but after seeing a few in real life, i think it makes newer cars look a bit rural which i dont really like....but then again its your car, do what ever you thikn looks good!

I've seen a few ea-eb's with really shiny 12 slotters on them....looks a bit crap.

But then, if the car is lowered IMO it looks really, really nice.

I'd put em on mine....but only if its lowered :)

Just an opinion i spose.


Thanks


Dane.

12 slotters look good on anything up to XF. On any EA-BA Falcon they just look crap imo. They also look bad on anything other than a Ford too.

I think if your car is lowered and they are a nice clean set, go for it. I had mine on a low EA, and while they are old, they do look nice if they are looked after, plus there is the fact that not all of us have a spare $500 plus to put into wheels, I know i didnt when i got my first car, therefore it made sense to put something on that i could afford.
If you do go ahead, i would love to see some pics of them on the old girl

I agree with the pro group - I recken they look good but only when lowered.. It would be a good way to get some wide rubber on the car and HEY!! whats wrong with a rural look!! Haha...

It's much safer to do circle work in 15's than 17's...
