Re: rims for EL

I voted Drift Rs, but I don't like your chances of getting them in E series offset.

Re: rims for EL

Azzurro look great but as JC said, do they suit E series? Go with AMG Quakes.

Re: rims for EL

I almost had a set of Drift R's for my XF, the pictures don't do it any justice. You really need to see the rim upfront to like it. I had beaurepairs try to sell them to me for $1700 with brand new tires, fitted and balanced in 17". Very nice looking rims.

Re: rims for EL

ANZ FTR's in the 17" if you can find them. They look superb on the EF/EL's.

Re: rims for EL

I know for a fact you can get the drift R's to suit e-series from bob jane in a 17'. They offered them to me as a package.

AMG's always look killer on anything. As with ANZ rims, not necessarily FTR rims but others there too.

Check out www.tempetyres.com.au for a huge selection of tyres & wheels. The do packages too if on a budget.

There is so many to choose from if your budget permits.

Re: rims for EL

Stick with 17's. Still looks damn good, and the tires are cheaper than 18's.

Re: rims for EL

Yeah I got new Hankook Ventus K102 235/45/17's for $154ea fitted & balanced here in SA. I bet ya cant find a decent 18' tyre under the $200 mark anywhere in aus. Stick with 17' unless you can afford the 18's.
