Wich series of AU's. Series1 or 2. I have the S1 on the Terrorist. not overly fussed on the S2, GT's look the goods, but if i was getting rims again, it would be the 18 option for the T series cars

I reckon 18 is the biggest to go on most E/S - anything bigger looks a bit weird IMHO...although there are some tidy exceptions out there IMHO - Jet XR comes to mind among others I'm sure...

Team GenuineELGTRims all da way :P

Aren't spacers counted as a defect?

The 19s are a blackened variation of the GT rims.
The 18s were a unique style.

no.. the 19's are a black version of the BF GT-P rims. The BF GT has the same wheels as the BA MKII GT-P.
The BFII Typhoon 19's look unreal though.. check them out!
