i have a set of auscar rims that came optioned on my ef

i thought the option would have been the ftr look, are these things rare? they are a five spoke design, alloy, auscar caps in the middle.

an approximate price would be nice.

cheers

also individual dealers put aftermarket rims on cars as sort of a 'dealer specific' option... when they make good rates with tyre/wheel companies. many examples of these locally.... although from what you speak of i'm pretty sure i know the rim your speaking of and they're not the goldmine you expect them to be. 5 spoke pretty smooth, spokes not excessively large.

yeh worked all day im free tomorrow arvo so will post a pic up.

they're a 5 spoke design but each spoke kinda has two spokes to it.. will see it tomorrow.

and i'm not expecting them to be a goldmine, i prefer the el xr rims and if the value is similar would like to do a trade. or any rim of my liking for that matter.

thanks and quite interesting re dealer options never knew
