Those rims are heaps cheaper now.. when i bought them they were $1900 without polish. But i've seen them on cars and they look terrible. Either Chrome em or polish em =) they look like a different rim! (That was including rubber, Falkon - 245/40R17, but i had a harder compound tyre put on which was the same price)
When i said it cost me $2500, i meant wheels tyres springs and polish included lol
Don't forget Factory Direct have 12months interest free. Take advantage of that. They were the only company that supplied those rims (not sure now though) - they are not ford rims. If you get them ask for the FORD centers.. and dont forget lock nuts.
Springs - superlow stage 2 (like mine ride height) 11cms off the ground. BUT.. DO NOT go this far down without SHOCKS.. trust me.. i was without shocks for 8months... TERRIBLE ride!
All the best... let me know what happens eh?
Hmm, you said that i needed shocks to go that low? Doesn't my XR6 have shocks already? I'm not very car friendly when it comes to wheels/brakes/suspension... All i know is that my shocks are yellow at the rear after i checked my rotor for hot spots yesterday..
I think i'll have to hold off with the body kit for now, as that is just purely an visual thing that can be done later. The wheels are visual also, but i really need new wheels, as the ef xr6 wheels are the biggest pieces of crap i've ever seen
When you said 12 months interest free, i might put a $1000 desposit down, and pay the rest off as i go.. do the rims need re-polishing after a certain amount of time? are they easy to clean? does cleaning them un-polish them?
Oh, and i must say that i LOVE your car setup :) Very nicely done dude :) I can't wait until i get my p's, and i'll be coming to all the cruises!!
