What wheels to get on my EF XR6?

Hey guys, just wondering what your thoughts are on wheels for the EF. My 15" wheels just aren't funky enough. I was thinking something like this?

what do you guys think? what have you seen that looks good?

Thanks,

Yagz

I love these wheels on an EF/NF. Pic from the recent EF-EL cruise.

hey chubbz, so, the bodykit is a proper tickford kit? I know people who can do the painting for it, so that's not a drama.

The wheels all up will cost me $2500 with the springs? is that including rubber? Are they genuine ford rims?

So, my budget;
Wheels and Springs (XLR) = $2500 + $250 polished = $2750
Bodykit = $1000 + $300 = $1300

grand total = $4050 !

Hmm, i think i'm going to have to do with wheels and springs first :\ , then if i get more money, i can do the kit.

Hey Yagz, Jack i think that is FBT195's fairlane, he had the NL Speedlines on it but then he went for Simonds.

There are only Three sets of Genuine Ford wheels that fit the E series Yagz, EB GT, EL GT & NL Tickford Fairlane, the ones on my car.

Hey yagz...

My bodykit is aftermarket (EL XR8 kit). Got it from Alkon Vehicle Enhancement. I heard you could get the genuine kit for even less than what i paid these days. Dunno though...

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!!

Thanks,

Yagz
