We were looking at a set of 16 X 7 and 16 X 8 B45 simmons, but picked these up at a nice price.

Looks tops mate, I much prefer the EL rims over the EF ones, they look 100 times better IMO

The wheels are a nice upgrade! What's the difference on the road with the 16's?

Re: our EB XR8

EBXR,

Feels alot more responsive on the road. We also have Koni's, king springs and full urthane bushes, you can really feel the bumps, potholes, etc on the road more now as well.


Crowbar, I walked into the local Bridgestone outlet last weekend and they had them there second hand. With 225 X50 X 16 tyres near new dunlops on the back. I paid $770 for them. I sold my EF wheels for $300 bucks to cArSik on here.

NobbyXR8, I thought all XR6 & XR8's came with the clear indicators. If you are looking for a set, I always see them for sale on ebay. Just go to the car section and do a seach within the area for EB or XR8 and you will find them.


Cheers
Mark
