If you dont get them i will personally drive all the way to WA to slap some sense into you. You seriously need to get them rims, they look brilliant on your car.
P.s. is that a BPT sticker on the rear quarter glass?

(and the more peopel that get these rims means the less xr8 copies, which means a happy TTBMX seeing as a few newy members now have the same rims as me)


Hehe ...you kinky beast.

Yeah, will definitely HAVE to get 'em now.

Yep, it's a BPT sticker ...they've done a little work on her, and have got her ear-marked for R&D tuning with the SCT / CAPA E-series software when it's available ...they get an EL XR6 to play around with, I get a free tune = all good. :wink:

I still like the BA XR8 copies, but the GTP rims just seem to work better with my paint colour & the tikky kit.

That does it ...I'm definitely getting myself a set of these babies! :P

Dunno about the 19's tho ...18's will be more sensible, and about $700 cheaper. :wink:

I am Rideing on King springs super lows, with pedders shocks not sure what type but there trimmed or something meaning the shocks are actually made for the super lows because keeping your original shocks cuase massive tyre wear and rubbing etc. All up shocks and super lows cost me about $700 i got both back and front shocks done, most say only the front ones need doin but for the extra $$ spent on back shocks will save my tyres in the long run and for $300 a tyre no thanks lol...

I was goin to choose the 19's but your right the $2400 price tag and thats only with crapy falon tyres i think they where about $2800 or more for the good hancook silica tyres low profile. 18's look a bit more professional and not as rice looking, it also sits very nicely on the road and you dont have to worry about rubbing, you might have to get the dude that puts them on the slighty bend your wheel arch on the inside so it always for definatly no room for rubbing. Hope this helps :D

Ok mate, thanks for the tip.

Yeah, at least you can get better tyres with the 18's ...price for the 19's is TOO much of a jump.

Plus I'm aiming to spend more time at the drags ...gonna be a lot harder to drop tyre pressures with 19's ...unless I want to go skating down the track on my rims! :shock:

Once again, nice work ...I bet you get heaps of looks with your beast & those rims now! :wink:

That's very good ...as they normally average about $1850 as a package!

Just make sure you're getting decent tyres though ...as crappy tyres will obviously be cheaper. :wink:
