Help find 17 inch wheels for blueovals car today!

I just got the nod from the mrs to buy some 17' rims for my car!!! W00t

I just need to know opinions on what to get as I have a strict budget of about $1200 which will have to include tyres. yeah yeah I know its probably impossible but Im gonna try.

My choices are:
AU2 XR copies
ELGT copies
Avantek Blades

Opinions please. I would like to buy today or tomorrow as I would like to parade them for the SA Falcon cruise on monday!

Any photo shoppers are welcome to match some rims up too from the pics I have on my site (click on EBXR8 link below)

Please hurry!!!

Re: Help find 17 inch wheels for blueovals car today!

I'd love to but I rang up the tyre factory in Melbourne for a quote on the champagne coloured set with tyres and they want $1700. A little outta my price range unfortunately.

Can you suggest any other wheel brand or type other than the ones I mentioned?

Re: Help find 17 inch wheels for blueovals car today!

What are the csa edges worth per rim?

montyv8 has a 'friend' who can help me out in getting some 17x7.5 performance AP7's for a real cheap price. What do you reckon of these wheels in the silver of course?

Re: Help find 17 inch wheels for blueovals car today!

Personally I think the AU XR wheels look great on any E series, they suit the lines very well.

ROH 'Monaco' (I think thats what they're called) have studs along the outer rim, but they are a 3 piece rim and cost about $400 each .


EFFalcon, those rims are ROH 'Envy' - I have them on my EF in 15" size, and they cost me $150 a rim at that size.

too slow..............for now

EDFPV - I called them up today and they quoted me $1500 with remoulds for a set of elgt's. It was the dandenong branch. Which branch did you get that price quoted from?
