I'm sorry but I really dislike that style of rim...........

They will make an otherwise good looking car look old.

A mate had a similar rim on his XD and it looked ok I 'spose, but that was 10 years ago and on a 1980 vehicle.

I would really consider changing your rim choice to something that is a bit flatter in its side aspect/offset. if you look at all the current ie last 15 years, of OE rim design they are all flat (ish).

CONFUSED????? (F*^CKIN' OATH you should be.......I just confused myself!))))

Long story short....keep em if you like em. Change em if you don't!!!

im also sorry but i have to aggree with phil. the magnum really is an ugly looking wheel in my point of view and if you look around you will find a much better rim than the magum. if you dealing with
CSA wheels why not go for the Gladiator or the Force 2 or something? they will suit the car much better. but if you really like them. go for it. cheers

I like the Magnum wheel, and I think with the dish it makes the car look good.

I don't understand why you cant get wheels with a nice dish in the wheels.

It's just a shame you can't get these in 17x8.

If you like them that is all that matters.

I just found a pic of a set on an ef and posted in the first post. I have seen a few ef &El with them on and i like them. The fact they are deep dish they look like 17's but are only 16's.

Cheers Luke.

i think they would look better on a old ea wagon with faded cream paint, roof racks, huge susp, n dirty windows from the 5 kids in the the back..... thats my oppinion.... if ya like them, get em.... just dont put white lettering tires on em, i think that would be realy bad...

There is no dish on those rims... The spoke curve into the centre... A deep dish rim has the spokes inside the outer edge of the rim...

They are best left to 4WDs... they are horrible!

I gotta agree, they look like they would be at home on a Pajero or something alike.

Personally I love the AUI XR6 5 Spoke wheels on the EF/L's with the right spacers.

haha, i bought my ef with 15in csa magnum RT's (blacked out between the gaps).
it also had the white writing on the tyres.
i ended up getting new ones, cause it looked pretty ugly.
i like the wheels though, how much are you paying for them?
