Hi guys,

Ive been looking for 18" wheels for a e-series falcon (EL - Red Hot Chilli) and it doesnt seem like theres a lot of choice, Im not made of money or Id be looking at Simmons or Roh Modenas/Directors. Im not wanting to use hub adapters. If you guys can give me any tips or advice... Id like to achieve a 5 spoke deep dish effect so nothing too bulgy or flat (Im guessing im fussy) If you know of any other schmiko looking wheels, Pllllzzz let me know. So far ive looked at:

Zenetti Kaotics - Adapters required. :x
Koya Octanes :P
ANZ Mayhems :cry:
ROH Drift R's :?

A few others I cant think of at the moment.

Cheers. :)

Cheers mate, Im reallly considering a set of BF GT Wheels now, 18". I got one package price online at wheeldirect, $1800 with the tyres etc. Looks like ebay might save me some pocket money. If anyone could post a pic of their e-series with later model falcon wheels fitted, itd be appreciated, I got a few already.

Ive been torn between wheels the last few weeks but Im pretty much deadset on these BF GTP wheels now, something about em, keep it ford ;). Its definitly worth shopping around, some sites differ by $100 so far Ive seen. My brothers offered to get some prices later in the week locally as well so theres no rush. I was orginally planning to go 18" but now that Im set on these wheels and they are cheaper then most other wheels, I think I'll take the punt and just get 19's. Be done with.
