MKII xr8 18's

Hey fellas some of you will know i have a MKII xr8 on its way, seeing as it comes with 18's as standard kit im thinking of replacing them with either the new GT-P 19's or something else. What would be a reasonable price to ask for the wheels with rubber if i replace them. Also anyone know when the FPV series gets released, them 19's look nice.

$2000 is about what they are worth with rubber!

As for the 19's the best way to get them would be ring www.wheelking.com.au they will exchange your 18's plus cash for the 19 inch rims, they stock all FORD and HOLDEN rims available!

Re: MKII xr8 18's

I think ill get more with a private sale seeing as they will need to make a margin on them. Im ringing my uncle tomorrow about a price for the 19's, no way im paying retail for em. But just for a comparo ill ring them to see how much they charge, im guessing 3 grand for the rims.

Ull be looking at about $850 a rim for the new 19's they certainly arent cheap.. And another $92 each on top for the FPV Centre caps, which you wont be able to get unless you have an FPV Vin number!

Plus 60 for the Ford centre cap i think, or does that price include that tho JR??

Dont think you'll ever get that much for them tho XRQTOR, I paid $2000 for a brand new set on my old AU!! and that was before they started making copies! You can get copies of the same rim for about $250 now...
