best way to check your speedo accuracy is with a hand held GPS, checked mine when i was doing 100km/h with 16" / 55 rubber GPS said 100.7km/h tryed a stock AU at 100km/h GPS said 97km/h.
before i got hold of a gps i asked the cops to check it with the speed gun and it was dead accurate at 100km/h.

The helpful fellows at Tempe Tyres hooked me up with some hub adapters ($50 each!!).
They did tell me they were illegal, but being an E series there werent too many rims around for this price that would bolt straight on.

I have to do some research and find out about problems with the hub adapters, like will they snap and lose my wheel etc.
(Why are they illegal??)

The rims are made by StarCorp.
Theres no model badge on it so I dunno what they are called, but they are made by Starcorp.

Its handy, the lip is unboltable, so if it gets scuffed on a gutter I can get it re-machined.

Now im counting the days until some faggot steals my valve caps, they are polished too.

Look a bit like the simmons FR range, but isnt. Nice rims, and i love the fact the outer lip is changeable!

I wouldn't go anything less than 18 anyways, bet ya you get some stares while your cruising :). Nothing beats the presence of some big rollers dont care what people on here say about illegal! LOL

Tell us if you run into problems with the hub adapters, cause now i'm really considering some nice big 18s as well.

Have a look at that thread, which will basically confuse you on the legality of Hub Adapters :P
They are safe but, the track is the same, so no extra load on suspension components.
And AFAIK no one has 'broken' one.
