Yep, they will look good, but if you were after something unique, I think you just found out that they won't be. Love them on any car - I reckon they'd even make a commodore look good!

yeh i've accepted that they wont be entirely unique, but hey they look alright, and they arent everywhere like some other wheels(think VTSS)

talked to bob jane(cannington shop, damien) today.. the guy that gives em prices was in geraldton so i couldnt get exact figures, but i'm told around or under $300 a piece for 17x8.. i'll stick the price up here when i know for sure.

hey tuffesp, you got pics of your beast you can show me?? i would love to see these wheels in action..

Dont go to bob jane!!! they mark up there prices $100+
Go to Tyrepower, or some other small company, they mark them up by around $10-20 max!

I got quotes on rims from Tyrepower in malaga for $250 for ANZ FTR, Bob in joondalup wanted $330'ish. The rim itself costs only $230 (well my rim anyhow).

Stay well clear from the big names, they make HUGE profits!!!

Try Mr Mag in Morely. His prices seemed reasonable when I was looking for wheels earlier this year.
