Looks okay, is that a fake TS50 or did the earlier ones have the orange rear indicators.

they dont look like 17's... maybe its just the angle of the photo, but they look small.

how much did they set you back?

its a fake.
thats a series 1 AU with a series 3 TS50 bodykit. You can tell by the orange rear indicartors and orange side repeaters. The headlights have a silver bezel, series 3 TS50's got a black bezel, also all auII/III got the clear rear indicators, and only the prototype series 3 TS50's had the orange side indicators. Also series 3 TS50's came with 18's so why downgrade?
Looks good in my opinion, but pull the TS50 badges off..

17s are too small for an au only 1 inch bigger than stock? well it looks better than stock but doesnt compare to tickford 18's especialy with that bodykit to make them look smaller again.

They look REALLY small.

I'd go 18, maybe 19 inch.

With kit - 18/19".
Without kit - 17" min with good lowering.

All in all id rather see it on different angle before making judgement.
Side on pics of rims are very decieving.
