Well guys finally got myself a set of 19's. Have been keen for a set of 19's for the ute for a long time now nd this was an offer i couldnt refuse.

I know, i know, they are old news now, but i have always liked the look of the GT-P's in 19's. I think they look good on the ute, they suit the XH XR's well. They came with Toyo Proxes4's all round. 245/35's up front and big 265/30's on the rear, all with approx 90% tread. Heres a couple of quick pics, apologies on the state of the ute, its been collecting dust for the last 2-3 weeks.

Comment away!!!

Thanks mate. Its definately filthy though :lol: , look behind the rears, thats from the last drag meet from the water on the pre-stage skids lol. Its dusty as too and front windows filthy :oops: , need to give the bugger a clean and get a car cover to stop it collecting dust when it sits there.
No pic from the rear atm, bit dark outside now too, will get one up as soon as i get a chance.

Thanks mate, payed a measely $1000 cash for the lot, which IMO is an absolute bargain with the tyres that are on them.
No trade-in, straight outta the quokka, turned i also knew of the bloke who was selling them. And believe it or not they actually came off another XH XR8, as rare as these utes are.....whats the chances lol.

looks good mate, suits the ute just nice. how you think you will go for rear end grip on the street with thoes rubberbands? wish i got 19s as i had the choice of 18s or 19s for the same price but went 18s as i thaught with the rugh roads around here 19s would be a bit harsh.

Cheers for the comments guys. I knew they are not everyones cup of tea so i expected some negative feedback so its all good.

I think they'll hold up well on the street , but i guess theres only one way to find out :wink: .
