Hey all,

Getting some rims for my new BA XR6T, narrowed it down to these 3 variations of the same wheel:

18's

19's
http://www.tempetyres.com.au/products_c ... art_no=179
http://www.tempetyres.com.au/products_c ... art_no=180

Which ones, people?

My car:

Example of what they can look like on a BA.

For my colour (mercury silver 'gunmetal') ...should I go Chrome or Shadow?

Should I go for these rims at all?

Yes, they're awesome, go the 19"s, and DON'T go chrome on your silver car!
Will look s**t.
Shadow chrome looks schmick on lighter coloured cars.
BA's make rims look small, so DEFINATLEY go the 19"s

Not so sure about the 19" Shadow Chrome, because I would prefer that it was all the silver look i.e. NOT the chrome dish!

What do you think?

Have a look at the 18's and you'll see what I mean...
