Cant choose which rims? HELP

Hey guys. Looking at getting some wheels thought i'd ask for your input, cant decide.

Non-genuine EL GT rims
AU2 XR8
BA XR8 17"

I have a oxford green EL futura, so i was thinking the fake gt's.

IMO the EL GT's look awesome on any E-series car.

Interesting you say that, i have been told not to go for the BA xr8's but for the au2's. As you say, the gt's look horn on any E-series and i personally prefer them.

Re: Cant choose which rims? HELP

Thats a hard choice but the way i see it everyone has the AU 2 rims on the e-series so if you want to be different go for the BA XR8 rims or even the EL GT rims which is one of my favourite rims.

Despite i cant afford EL GT or the BA XR8 rims im looking at getting the au 2 rims will see how it all turns out.

Yeah guys, The tyre Factory in Mitcham Victoria, has a set of genuine EL GT rims for $600 (no tyres). They are relatively gutter scratched, but would be ok with a lil bit of tlc.
