I've had Cragar SS mags or kidney beans on every car i've ever had.
I get my BF XR6 on tuesday and looking at wheels here online this Speedy Malibu is the closest I can find to that design.
Can anyone point me to something similar by perhaps another manufacturer?

ALso am I correct in that 18"s will bolt straight on with no modifications needed?

Sorry for the perhaps basic questions this is my first car made after 2000

youll have to check if the malibus have the right caliper clearance etc. im not sure if they do 18's. yes 18's are fine they come from factory on most the xr8's. if you want that style rim look up american racing torque thrust 2's. big dollars compared to the speedys.

sorry i should have seperated that I know malibus are only 17"

according to the bob jane 'virtual car' 17" malibus fit but yeah that's not cast in stone:P

my 18" question was regarding wether I include 18's in my searching or stick with the stock 17s

and the malibus are also available in "classic silver" which I like on a silver car
