Re: The XW

Actaully mate i was going to go fishing for this thread today as im currently working on the front suspension just waiting for my mate to drop off my lower control arms. Im hoping for all 4 wheels to be on the ground by tommoro.

Probably post some pics of all the suspension components later.

Still deciding buddy. Leaning towards BA XR 17's or Convo pros, the xr wheels are the cheaper option but im just gonna wait and see till its all finished to make a decision.

Any more suggestions are welcome too guys and gals.

(and im not putting globes or 5 slots, galaxy )

Re: The XW

Deep dished (setback) wheels are in my oppinion the way to go, as they look the part.
New cars do not have them due to airodynamic BS.
8" way to go pref. 15" or 5 slotters? Nahh.
The Convo's look the part!
