I can get them both for around $1200 new with tyres and just wondering what people think would look better. My EL fairy is a silvery light blue colour so I will probably get the silver ELGTs but I love the look of the AU XR rims.

Get Advanti Stalkers ;) they look mad.
I wouldn't get either rim, both are far too common.

lol 19s are too big for e series, look weird most of the time (short of fr's ;))
18s are good.

I'd go with the AU XR rims, they do look pretty nice on E series cars and everyone has the EL GT's.

go with something nobody else has, nothing worse than the boring xr's or gt's, thats all everyone ever gets, there too common, but id choose the xrs just because there off another model, stockies would look better than those 2 choices, ive got 19's on mine and they suit it really good, and not much chance of people copying me either, cuz everyone around my area are too cheap to buy big rims, they all just shread there tyres anway trying to show off in front of the little teen girls, wow thats gonna impress them.

Like I said I would love 18s but Im cant justify the price difference in tires. 17s are much more practical.
