Wanted - Photo of Venom BA XR8 Sedan with 18's

Would someone please be kind enough to post a photo or photo's of a BA XR8 sedan in Venom with 18's.

A seach of the Gallery and the posts have proved fruitless (although I'm still coming to grips with finding things you want in the Gallery!!

Many thanks.

Thanks Gremin.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who has difficulty finding a photo. My car should be here in 7-10 days. I don't envy you having to wait a further month but at least its not the wait time for a turbo. 10 days is plenty.

Mine has been built but currently at FPV for roof and wheels. I thought a picture was the next best thing but the best I could find was a venom XR6 with 18's or a 1\48 model!! Close but no cigar (ur bulge). I'm also a bit surprised that we cannot find a picture of the the real deal. Perhaps someone out there can put us out of our misery.

10 days and counting.......

hey again! Did you order the standard 18"s? Im getting some after market ones... Check out the choice in the image attached and let me know what you think. Either 1 or 6.

I rung up my Ford dealer to change the color from orange to black. I test drove the black manual and loved it... but thought the orange was the better colour. But after seeing both of colors on the XR8 in the next week after i ordered the car... Ive changed my mind. I think the orange looks great on the XR6T (which was what i was going to get), but the black JUST LOOKS TOO MEAN(TM) to pass up. Lucky i got the colour changed in time. Its on the production line TODAY. Jeeeeze - i can't F*$Ken wait!

I think number 1 looks better.

yea... That was my original choice. Lots of people think that the 5-spoke works the best on a grunty looking car, and i tend to agree, but the #1 is brand new out, so hardly any about. If they were 17"s i can understand the 5-spoke choice, but #1 mags look wicked in 18"s. and not many people would make that choice, so the car will look 'different' if you know what i mean.

Re: Wanted - Photo of Venom BA XR8 Sedan with 18's

No 1 would be my choice out of that range. They have a touch of M3 about them and are a bit different. But hey, its your car not mine. I'm not one for seeing brake parts through the wheel, unless you have Brembo's of course. If you wanted a 5 spoke then I assume that you would have gone with the factory 18 inchwheels as I have done.
