Question Recommend some Rims for new XR6?

Hey guys, i was thinking of selling my 5 spoke XR6 rims 2003 model.
I went to canterbury tyres and they were gonna give me $950 trade in and sell them for $1200. They are MINT condition, only 6 months wear on tyres, so anyone thinks thats what they are worth, or more?


Secondly,
what would you recommend, i was looking at some 19" APEX AP-203, a mate can get them for $3500 with tread, which is quite cheap, but dont know if i wanna spend that much. He seems to think that the suspension would not need any mod's & that'll fit straight on... does anyone concur? As a different mate said if i put 19's or higher, i would have to spend another 3 K on a new supension, spacers etc. Im looking at either 18' or 19' in a 235 width.

Any one has pics of their XR 6 with nice chrome rims & can recommend a place , or website would be great....
email me at deltondo1@optusnet.com.au

Thanks

Daniel

Re: Recommend some Rims for new XR6?

If you get 18s or 19s, go 245 width. i think standard is 245/40/18 or 245/35/19. you could even go up to around 265 on the back (265/35/18 or 265/30/19). If you go 18s or 19s, you will not NEED to do any suspension mods, or spacers, however, you can always do that if you WANT.

As for actual rims - do a search, there are plenty of places that advertise on the net. Rims are such a personal choice, that for every 10 or 20 recommendations you get, you may only like one style.

I have a set of 19" rims with 265/30/19 with 98% tread for sale, PM if interested.
They are a sort of five spoke design, and immaculate.

Re: Recommend some Rims for new XR6?

You know the DJR BBS rims, advanti has a rim in their range called "Chile" which are almost identical.. I have been quoted $3500 with decent Hancock tyres or $3700 with Falken tyres. It is the 19" size.. he is also going to give me a $650 trade in on my 17" XR6 factorie rims & tyres.. Does anyone know a place that could better this price, or another rim similar to the DJR BBS rims in a good price range???
