Re: FR19 simmons on an au xr8

This is a photo of 3FIVE1's AUII XR8 Rebel with 19" Simmons. More pic's here.



Very expensive rims those Simmons, especially in 19". Don't know if they suit the AU shape though, getting a bit old in design now. On the Porsches is another story, looks damn good on them.

What about these two? Available in 19x8 for AU and BA by Advanti.

Re: FR19 simmons on an au xr8

Whatever you get it has to be no less than 18's. I have 17's and they look small on a large car.

Those simmons look sweet.

Check the garage section of www.aufalcon.com if you haven't already.

Re: FR19 simmons on an au xr8

i sold a set of those Advani Babbina's 19x8 to a member here last month for $1800 with 70% hankook rubber there a good looking wheel...
before you buy new alloys make sure you ask somwone to photoshop them on your car 1st so you know you made the right chioce..

Re: FR19 simmons on an au xr8

I went for the ROH Modenas because of two reasons:

- the Simmons FR19s still can't be made to fit over Brembos
- the Simmons parts are all made in China now (with only wheel assembly done in Oz

But I still LOVE the FR19s looks.

Re: FR19 simmons on an au xr8

have a set of azzuros that i have just taken off the tickford- wouldn't do it to you though (look great clean but don't stay clean)

also looked at the simmons- went away from that idea, but definately the FR's are their (simmons') best

Re: FR19 simmons on an au xr8

Simmons are the only way to go for me, my mate has a brand new set for sale - his car was sold before the rims arrived so now they've gotta go. If anyone's interested, PM me and I'll give you contact details. They are Gold in colour, polished lip - don't know exactly what rubber but they suit AU-BA, price is $3800 I think.
