Ok, so now the mod bug has attacked and I'm on the hunt for new rims and suspension for the AU1 XR6.

I have already been pointed to the whiteline site (thankyou Kerry) and will probably go that way.
After the suspension it will be time for new rims. First choice is for a set of the original Tickford 17" AU1 rims but, if the $2000 (without tyres) price from Ford is anything to go by I think I'll just go straight to the 18" aftermarkets.

My problem is I am very, very fussy and have not found too many rims I like. So far they have been few and far between however I have found a set I like and want some opinions on how people think they would look.

Opinions?

Advanti Vallens 18x7.5

I'd like to but they are the wrong angle. I think they will look good anyhow. Now, to find out the price :fraz:
