Ok well ive decided on a new wheel for my car, but cant decide what colour to get. Heres the low down, the car is a 94 ED (fake XR) and it is polynesian green. (look in gallery for an idea of the colour!)

Ok these are the wheels in the different colours, dont worry about the size and what not i'm after what colour would look best on my car!
Shadow Chrome

Blacl with polished lip

Or Gold

Opinions on colour of rims for my ED?

Moving on to bigger things mate, like a new car for starters. But am considering keeping until i get the new car.
But yeah so far ive had 2 blacks and 1 shadow chrome. And i like the rims i got now but they are getting way to common on boxcars, and these arent as common to what i can see. Something a bit different from the usual rim selection is what i want!

If you get these, get the 19s, shadow chrome.
The 18s look a bit weird cause the spokes are too short and have too much angle if ya get what I mean.
I was looking at them a whole back myself, but never could save up the folding.

Glenn no offence but those 18s actually look like 17's on the ED, and steady mate i know exactly what you mean mate.
And gold wasnt really an option just thought id post ALL the colour options, i was leaning to wards black, but that pic of shadow chrome has a gun metalish type shade to it!
Cheers guys keep the ideas/opinions and photos comming, its all a great help!

Yeah ive seen a few pics of your car and seen them rims on a BA a couple of days ago (an XT with a full BF XR conversion thing happening!)

But yeah i'm getting 19's anyway so size issue is zilch ive decided size just between black or shadow chrome.

Keep the 19's.. those 20" rims are such a common design, i dunno why though because imo they're so ugly.. :oops:

I'm not a big fanof darker coloured wheels on dark cars - i.e. shaddow chrome. Looks awsome on light cars, especially white but.

Gold would be a bit different. Otherwise powder coated white rim would look ace.

Otherwise just your standard sorts of silers I reckon.

O, and personally I think the style of rim your looking at is hideous on Falcons, spokes are too thin and weak looking for the big bulky bodies. Thick 5 to 9 spokers look far better.
