When i had my EA (2ish years ago) i bought a set of 17's with reasonable rubber for $1200. My guess is cheaper now.

Last car had the 17's for e-series - see my gallery.

Looks good up close but s**t when they used to get dirty... if I had another EL and was gonna do it again I'd probably get the silver painted finish (like most BA/BF rims) instead of the machined chrome like finish on the genuine BA XR8 rims.

Sometimes looked a bit weird having shiny rims on a white car - machined finish would always look awesome on any other colour except white especially silver or black :D

The ride was really harsh with the superlows/KYB's and 17's too.. hate to think how it would be with 18's.

Pricewise mine were about $1500 fitted/balanced for set of 4 with an OK set of rubber around start of 2006 from memory.
