Hi,

I have a set of 18" Speedy Ravens on my ED.

With the Bridgstone SO2's on them they set me back just under $3500.

You can get a set of 17" rims and rubber for about $2500. You will also have a bigger variety to choose from (there arent that many 18" rims on the market for pre AU falcons.)

:-)

Kelli, Tell me about, I ended up getting 17" (CSA Force) rims because they didn't have the rims that I wanted in 18" size.

Hi,

There is a pic of my car here...

http://www.xrclub.itcs.net.au/images...lli_edxr8.html

I have been having a few issues with my rims and tyres in the last 2 weeks ($1200 worth of probs to be precise) My suggestion is to not go bigger than 17's

:-(

Kelli,
What problems are you having??? I have 18inch rims on mine the same as the new TE50...with 235s on the front and 245s on the back, lowered with super low springs... no problem except it still isnt low enough and the rear tyres arent wide enough (want 265s).. am looking to lower it anther inch shortly and are hoping you dont have a nightmare story to share.
