Hey I love all these face options.

Anyone seen some nice wheel designs that would suit XR AU models. I like the wheels on the Xplod show car. They are a Kahn rsr wheel that is sold by Herrod, but these are the only aftermarket wheel I have seen fitted. Anyone else see something that looks good?

Yes it is. Most places that sell tyres have charts showing what tyre goes with what wheel to keep speedo happy. My spare is only 15 " and I am reasonably sure it is 65 series rubber.

Read in wheels that the designers at Ford are fighting the engineers over how low the Falcon will ride and how big the wheels will be....
Lets hope for a change that the engineers don't win (like on the EF....) and we get some Falcons with nice large wheels and a low ride height.

I think Ford have learned a BIG lesson from the AU Falcon.
Having Holden hand them their arse on a plate every month hurts us blokes, so how does Ford feel. Pretty embarrassed I'd reckon. I think the Falcons we'll see from now on will be great looking cars (they'd friggin better be anyway...)

Hey thanks J-Type - that looks great!!

Glad to see they are still thinking of using the quad style headlights at the front - an XR trademark!

I've thought about it and I'm not too worried because back over at BON I mentioned that I would have some info regarding the AV wagon from a source.
He's seen the pics of the XR6 but he reckons the front looks a bit more roundish.
But if the XR6 picture is the real thing it still does'nt bother me as long as I DON'T ever see it turning up at BON or any other website or in Wheels and Motor.
I should have copy writed the picture, so if I did find the picture any where I would be able to sue them a AU11 XR8.

J-Type if you think that's near to the real thing can you please remove it unitl we get closer to AV launch. If your confident this won't cause a hassle I don't want to edit your posts.

Things like this drawing are much better left to email so no-one from the factory knows what info we've actually got. ;)

If you've got any worries send me an email and we'll work something out.

Sorry guys but my consience got the better of me...

Anything like the pictures that were posted or bonifide information is best kept to email...

Not only would Ford have kittens but I would hate to see Fishermans Bend get a leg up over Broady. God knows they have enough advantage already.

If you guys have a major drama with what I've done please send me an email and I'll explain...

Cheers
