The wheels are okay. I'd go for the performance route myself. What else have you done to your car?

Re: what to do next??

I agree. rims are a little plain looking. much more around for 2 1/2 g's.. maybe spend $1500-$2000 on rims and buy something else nice for the car for round $1000.

Re: what to do next??

XRated: So far i have put full pedders lows, pod filter, de-badge, took the pin-strip off, tinted the tail lights and repeaters, Blue dash Mod, a kenwood headunit, kenwood splits, 3-way rear, 2 12" kenwood subs, and 1 4ch amp and 1 mono amp both kenwood .

Walkinshaw: i got a qoute for the rims and tyres in melboure $2200 just got to shop around coz i place wanted $3000 for them.

Sprint_250: i went to the tyre factory in sunshine and they said the rims bolt right on, no need for spaces and in the R.O.H cat it has Pre-AU in it.

plus that pic make the rims look shit i will try to find a better pic.
