just a no name brand 225/50/16.($129 fitted) But they should handle better than the federal 205/65/15 it's sitting on at the moment.

They only make the offset ET6 to 16in, AU falcons with the offset of 38 can get the 17's fitted.

Anyhow i have only looked at 16's because once you go 17''s you need to lower the car or it will look like a roller skate. and i don't want to do that.

i just recently got 17" advanti Stalkers for my EL....for those who dont know...they are shadow chrome, so doesnt look real bling bling...which is what i wanted to avoid. And yes if u go 17"s u definitely have to get the car lowered...took me 10 min to realsie that....few hundred dollars later, superlows were on.

hmm looks like u got a good price for what ur getting

Mine came with BFGoodrich rubber...all up set me back $1350, fitted; with a wheel alignment n lock nutz thrown in.
