Hey Guys,

A bloke on here has just offered me a bit of money for my 17" CSA Dominators in AU-BF offset. He's giving me his stockies to chuck on my car as a temporary fix but I will need new wheels very soon...

What do people think of the 18x8" BA Typhoon wheels? They come in pre-AU offset and arrive at my door for a touch under a grand...

Image

I'm open to other suggestions of other wheels but I don't want to spend any more than $1500 all up, wheels and tyres...

Here's a quick photochop of them on my car...

I love your wheels but like you said, a bit over my budget... Plus 19" is getting a bit big for me. And I already got the kit, I thought you knew that, I'm fitting it these holidays so that will change the look of the whole car of course...

Do you know an E-series with these wheels fitted? I thought they were fairly uncommon as they're not readily available from common wheel places. I'd love to see a pic of them fitted if you've seen it.

I'll keep looking around of course but it's so hard to find wheels in E-series offset that arent as common. Besides, when you come by a good set of wheels in E-series offset, you don't want to part with them which makes them next to impossible to come by second hand. And you pay through the nose for nice wheels from Bob Jane and places like that.

Ok... Just went down to Bob Jane and spoke to my mate. Apart from the typical FORD wheels that every E-series have, there are the following available...

- AMG Quakes - 17" $1250, 18" $1600
Image

- CSA Retros - 17" $1450
I can't find a pic of these anywhere...

All those prices are for packages with good rubber at mate's rates :wink: ... But, there really isn't many choices out there for E-series... The Typhoon wheels end up being $1490 with rubber posted to my door.

Anyone got any suggestions for wheels around the $1500 price?

Excuse the massive picture above and the fact that it's on a commonwhore but it was the best pic I could find of the Quakes... Here's a crap one of the Retros I took of the catalouge with my phone...
