Ok, have the cash in hand and ready to start looking.

I want a set of 19's for my black au xr8.

So far i've seen 3 designs i like, they're in my gallery.

Just wondering what styles, colours/finishes etc you guys think would work with the XR styling?

She's used for work so nothing real over the top and flash. I want it to look kind of sophisticated but tough.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks guys.

I can only see the last ones, (Apache) and they're allright.

Just try not to have rims that can get gutter-rashed easliy. and try to get tyres with a rim-protector. (protects your investment and keeps them looking newer for longer)

Here are some that i think would look good... I know exactly the wheel that would be perfect, but, i dunno what it's called and i canna find it. The tracers are in my opinion the best, and i think the ones from the BF GOODRICH advert with the s2000 would look tops, dunno what they are tho.

Those are pretty nice hey!

My best mate just bought a set of gold 19 tracers. They're sick wheels but we spend hours driving together every week so i'd prefer something a little different.

I have found a gorgeous set of (i think hp) chrome 5 spoke rims. I'll get it off my phone and post them up tomorrow. Just a simple 5 spoke design but looks so so sweet. Only thing holding me back is the s**t look of the au1 brakes. With holes that big in the wheels, it'd most probably look s**t without nice big brakes.

Good excuse for a massive brake upgrade i guess. :?

Not too worried about the gutter rash. No one else drives my car except myself and the missus. U can laugh but f**k the girl can drive.

Get some 19" XHP Chrome barbs,they are a 5 spoke wheel but look unreal and will suit your car. If you cant get them in 19's,get them in 18's but you may have to do some extra chrome work stuff to set the car off.

Me personally, i've always loved the Series 3 TS-50 rims, the 5 spoke design, but they're only 18's.
19's aren't all that special over 18's.
