I have the money sitting around for some rims. I would like to spend around $1300 but upto $1600 if its something special. I want to get 18s and would prefer a 5 spoke setup. I loved these ones but only available in post-au. Not a fan of many of the copy rims. I can get BA XR8 18s for $1190 with new tyres but I dunno about them.

Refer to my post on Pre-Au mags.

http://www.fordmods.com/forums/fitment- ... 56861.html

Ebay seller "thekgb123" has a range of mags for pre-au fords in 18's for around the $1500 mark including wheels, chrome valves, chrome nuts + a set of lock nuts.

Also check out my gallery for pics of mags being fitted this week

au/ ba offset. hub adaptors required. i paid 1500 a few years ago so they are an excellent price. i contemplated 20's in black centre as an upgrade, but decided on bling. i still have the adaptors on now.

what colour is your car? black kaotiks look awesome...
