What Wheels for BA XR8 Ute ?!?

My new BA XR8 ute arrives in a month or so and I need peoples opinions on what aftermarket wheels to fit.

A few conditions though:
- Wheels have to be 18x8 or 18x9 not interested in anything else.
- Style wise 5 or 6 spoke is good but im open to suggestions.
- As far as finish anything goes but I'm not too keen on chrome.

That's it, offer up any ideas you have! Pictures or links would also help out...

Mak Sting ? I thinks thats the name

All tough looking wheels and look great...........
Shadow Chrome or Silver looks beautiful imo.
Yes totally agree no chrome

They do, some of the better wheels Ford has offered in recent years but there is better out there.

All fine suggestions so far, keep 'em coming!

5 or 7 spoke. 6 spoke looks to much like a waggon wheel. Just a thought.

Something to think about that.

It really is a big decision picking out wheels for a car, you don't want to get it wrong.
