try ebay.. and stick with a 18 inch or 19 inch max rim with atleast a 35 series sidewall.. to keep some comfort..

B-series are a Pretty big car so definitely 19's + then Take the wing off, De-badge, & an drop it to the ground an you'll have a fairly nice cruiser...

hmm as for taking wing off i actualy like it but de badging my just do i read fishing wire was the best to do this

i have requested a quote from TTF about typhoon mkII 18's as the price i got for 19 is just a bit out of my price range considering they hadnt priced tiers onto it yet 2k for knock of 19s if i cant get anything else i like then maybe:P

lowering first then rims.... why you ask?

well in my opinion, car lowered on stock rims looks better than big rims on a factory height car

I agree.. however, my car (standard height BA) doesnt look TOO bad on the 19's, the rear sits nicely but the front looks like its on lifter kits :lol: :lol:
