hey how ya going, fairly new to all this haha.
anyway i just got myself a 92 EBII xr6 and have major plans for her, so i've been getting info on all the stuff im wanting and come across wheels.
i went to my local shop and asked for info and specs on the wheels i could possibly put on her and came out with only 3 possibilities, 2 of which are the same wheel just in a different colour.

so the question is am i able to put a decent set of 5 spokers on my eb that aren't volts and if so would i be able to get something over 17's on there (the guy at the shop said 17's might be the only size to fit on)

all help appreciated!

cheers

(i'm not sure if this is the right place for the post either!)

Yeh you need copies, can be found on ebay.

Offset you need is +6mm
PCD - 5x114.3
18s are a pretty common size, can be had for about 1500 with tyres.

Those CSA BOSS wheels look hot from what i can see and i dont mind the Avengers either, looks like the JAXX guy was full of s**t when he said there were only two wheels for me.

I dont mind the Volts but im trying to stear clear of them, a couple of my mates have em both in black and chrome so I wanted to try something a little different.

Thanks guys

Haha yeah I realise that now after about half an hour of research into wheels.

Woah I think I fell in love with them Tycoons haha they look real nice, deffinately not keen for the Mayhems though, I like a nice simple wheel that sets off my car, not something thats take the attention away from her :)
