well original EL GT's you probly don't wanna know.. but i think the knock offs aren't that expensive... actual cost escapes me right now off the top of my head but The Tyre Factory stock them

ooooooh..... it's a tough one, but I'm a sucker for factory rims, so put me down for the EL GT's.. although I dunno how they'd look with white... I would put money on it that someone on here has a white EA-ED with EL GT's on it for you to look at it to decide

I don't think champagne (gold) EL GT's would look good on a white car, but there are knockoffs, in silver which IMO would look ok.

On my car however they look HOT.

can also get them in shadow chrome as well, the darkened chrome, which could look sweet on a white car

Wheels to buy are AMG Quakes at the moment, Bob Janes have a special of 18" for $1599 or 17's for $1299. That's with tyres.
I reckon the CSA Gladiators are an awsome wheel too, but won't be as good value for money as the Quakes on special!
The EL GT's are also really nice and they're different to most wheels being a 6 spoker and that, but there's a lot of Falcons with them now.

The darker the wheel, the better it looks on white cars in my opinion.
