my opinion is i dont like them, but who cares cause you obviously like them and thats all that matters

So heres a couple links to mobs who sell copies, might be cheaper than what your looking at

Done a million times, have a look for something different and with spacers for the AU/BA offsets the sky's the limit with rim choices.

I just dont like 6 spoke rims on falcons, more suited to Jap cars, but thats only my opinion.

The ROH rt's come in 17's and 18's. Contact the ROH W.A. sales rep and ask them if and when they get them in stock. Also ask them for a dealer near you.

They are 8" wide. They are hot looking wheels, and yes im biased but when you see them in the flesh you'll understand :) If you go for them, make sure you get them in the 'fake' chrome finish, as ive seen these wheels on other cars in plain silver and they dont look anywhere as good.

Ive only got lows, so it doesnt look the best, but im happy.
