Not for me, but if you like them thats all that matters. Still better than stock.

I like that style, but they're not for ELs. If I had a BA, I'd have those for sure.

personally i like them, but you definitely need to lower it, toss the jailbar grille, and maybe get a kit

yeap i think i definetly need to get it lower, but it was an ex cop car and when i had the original taxi wheels on it, it kinda looked ok but i think these wheels actualy make my car look higher for some reason. this is like part one of my mods , i'm saving up for a te50 kit cause they look damn hot! and then maybe some engine mods but i'm still going to uni full time and working part time takes forever to save up.

Colour code that grill, or get rid of it, they are the worst thing on AUs. The rims look nice though.

regarding the grill, what happens if i just take it off, do i replace it with something else?is there another kind of grill that will fit?cause i don't like the look of it either and still have to save abit for the kit.

mine are 18's and i think its gunmetal or something like that and i think its either 7.5 or 7 but they do come in alot of different sizes.
something i totally forgot to mention is that the handling is about 10 times better than when i had the taxi wheels with goodyear ga's , now i got falkin tyres and it grips so much.
