I'm getting ready to do the wheels on my car soon but can't settle on a wheel I like yet.

I'm looking for something like the FBT speedlines (i.e. CSA force 2 but they only come in 16") in a 17x7 or 17x7.5 etc. I had settled on the EL GT reps in shadow chrome but after I saw a set of the champagne ones on a white EL it turned me off. (I thought they looked to fragile on the car.. not thick enough to suit the body)

Image

Does anyone have any other suggestions for similar wheels? I don't really like the AU xr's because I think they are too chunky looking for an E-series. No chrome either.

Have you seen the Advanti Stalkers? They are 5 spokes and come in 17x8's to suit E series Falcons, They only come in silver. My mate has them on his White EL Futura and they look awesome.

A little off topic but I saw a genuine EL GT parked at the shops near my work.. had a good scope... mmmm :)


Just out of interest Daniel what are the FBT speedlines? 17x8?

Nah, they are 17" x 7.5" ...


The edge are a nice rim, but i dunno why they dont suit ef/el very well.. just looks iffy to me lol.

they are the sweetest rims! i put a deposit on mine the other day - spent 3 hours on hands & knees scrubbing floors to get the deposit, but can't wait to get mine! exactly the same - BA XR8's :P

although with my windows being smashed, they are now a few weeks away... :(
