RIMS for EF/EL

Anyone can recommend any nice rims for a lowered ef falcon?
(not 17's since i would probably dent them from how i drive, lol)

Pics would be appreciated.

I really like the EL Fairlane By TICKFORD "Speedline Wheels By Roman Autotek" but at $800ea from ford and not able to buy them from Roman Autotek i'd rather something else.

CSA Force rims are nice, but i dont want polished..

Any suggestions? :s5


:CU:

(ps. pic attached are the speedline rims for ref.)

Im pretty sure the Tickford Fairlane rims are 17inch anyway.....


But these rims are popular (a bit too popular now IMO )




And ive always found these ones interesting....(off a Fairlane Sportsman or something??)



Theres also the ED XR Sprint rims

So thats where CSA copied the Force wheels from...I reckon the force wheels look better, the polished finish on the Force's is not polished...its a very coarse machine finish which lasts. Go have a look at the ute pics in the showroom thread. Those wheels(speedline)look just like any other everyday(think grey polaris wheels) wheels but $800 each!!!What a crock...If u want to spend that much might as well get some nice custom billet wheels or go for huge chrome..!

Lightbulb CSA Runs

CSA Rims on your ute, what size are they? 15's or 16's or?

Because they look quite small in comparison with your car thats the problem i found with them.

Nice wheels, although those Speedline rims are mad .. but csa or some others it might come down to.


Any other suggestions? And not interested in Ford Rims!

confused el futura's expensive wishlist

Do NOT! buy a body kit from SSV.

Ford itself charges last time i rang (2 months ago) $975 for a Tickford Kit including wing im sure too, not fitted/not sprayed.

With your Exhaust+Extractors i can organise for you if you like :) And spraying of the body kit or watever! :bcool:

Those are nice wheels actually, how much do they go for but?



Anyone else? So many people have read this Post but no1 has an idea? i mean come on!

they are 17's...!the high sides of the ute are deceiving.In the pics the front wheels look big and the back looks small.
There is another EL here somewhere with these wheels...cant remember his name tho.
And yes Id love some 20'$ too

I've got a set of ROH Azzurros on my EF (which is the same colour as the one in the post above :s5 schweet)

They are in the 16" size, and though they look a bit different than the ones in this picture (mine have a different centre) I like them. They cost ~$290 back in 1999. Even Tickford are putting 18" versions on their cars now...


Maybe this is just me, but I have a small problem with the 16" tickford rims - the directional ones, first picture in Martin's post above. While they look great, they aren't made in left and right sides. Therefore one one side of the car they are "backwards". I have noticed this with wheels and hubcaps from many manufacturers. I particularly remember the VN SS group A, whre they mentioned that the rims were designed especially to duct air to or from the brakes. Trouble was they were directional, so maybe only the brakes on one side got cooled?
