Original XA wheels

I'm sick of the Tridents on my XA and I'm looking at putting some original XA wheels back on. Can anyone post some pictures of an XA sedan with stock wheels? How hard are these to find? I'm assuming they are 14", do I need to find proper Falcon wheels, or will just 14" steelies fit the Falcon hub caps?

Re: Original XA wheels

Here's a picture I found of the style of wheel I'm after. If anyone could post a higher quality pic that would be awesome!

Re: Original XA wheels

wheels are fine, but getting decent tyres will be the challenge.

I have to agree with that. The dumbs thing i ever did was sell my set of auto drags 15x8.5 and 15x5.5, and go for the Gliden prostars all i could get at the time was 14x7 and 14x8.5s

Re: Original XA wheels

Is it getting hard to find 14" tyres or something? I'm not after flash performance tyres, I just want the period look of cool chrome hub caps and skinny 14" tyres.

In 14s, say a 215/65; I would go with Toyo, Kumho or Bridgestone. I personally don't use Goodyear, as I agree with the ad, if they save you once in a year, then it WAS a good year. I think they are rubbish. Any of the 3 I recommended above will save you HEAPS of times a year...!!
