What rims to purchase.

Righto, here's the deal. In a couple of months, I'll have the funds to get a set of rims for the EL.

The car is as obvious as in the signature, heritage green EL fairmont.

The pricing limit is $1600.

Current options:

- 17" EL GT
- 17" AU2 Tickfords
- 18" Lenso Concept 5's, or copies.


Basically I am looking for something in either 17" or 18", abiding to that mentioned price, I cannot afford to go over that.

Please include pictures, you guys rock :)

Oh, and do bother to help, as, read my signature, we need to get this car somewhat arse-kicking over John's EF :D (hehehehheehehehe) ..(hehehe)

Re: What rims to purchase.
