hey guys, just looking at the new fg rims,

the same ones that tocchi had on his xr8 before he changed them,
i wouldnt mind putting them on my car,

but wanted to see what you guys reckon, its a blue xr6, with a soon to be djr spoiler and dumped (when i get the right rims)
i wanna keep the car pretty much just all ford.

also, will the fg rims match up to the ba stud patten?

cheers guys.

Are they the ones you are referring to? If so, I have seen them on a BF XR6 not long ago and they are truly expensive. The retail is $825.00 each but I suppose you could get them after market somewhere?

Hey man, i like the idea of keeping the car all Ford! Thats what i am trying to do, mod the car yet keep it all original in a way.

Both style FG rims above are nice but the ones on the black XR8 would go better on your Bionic XR.
Cant wait for it to happen oh and another thing, bionic is the s**t :wink: :lol:

Why not try your Local Ford dealer? We have a deal running at the moment on Genuine XR8 18" with tyres for $1550.00. I guess that they may be available in WA also? Doesn't hurt to try anyway??

I couldn't find an EXACT pic but this seems to be pretty close

I bought the wheels for $1200 in brand new condition and put Maxxis Z1's on so all up about $2200 for wheels and tyres. Now is a good time to get them as people are getting new cars and selling them quick, so the wheels can be had in great condition. No copies yet on these or the 18"s, (don't like the 18's at all) so original is the only way to go.

very nice i must say,
and i wouldnt be looking at 18's at all, i dont like how they look on b series.

did you pick them up from ford or off another seller?
cause there is a ford dealership just down the road, but they would probably want more than 1200 wouldnt they? haha

God i love the mean look of the BF's, i think they are a really fine car, i love that sort of non metallic blue colour. The BF's are by far one of the nicest looking falcon models
