Ride: 2005 BA MKII FUTURA

Power: 145 rwkw

Location: Eden Hills
SA, Australia

As some of you may know, my pride and joy (94 TX5 Special Edition) was written off last month. was rear ended by a Toyota Hilux with a Roo bar.

Was a Sad day.

Anyhoo, a few weeks ago, i bought a 2005 BA MKII Futura with only 62k on the clock.

Got annoyed with people saying, i'm driving daddys car, or the work car. so i set out to make it alittle more mine so to speak.


264/40-R18 Speedy Wheel Inferno's (Gloss Black with Machined Lip)
See below.

I don't have any plans to lower atm... Lowered my last car and it was a royal pain in the backside... I was hitting everything...

Maybe down the track, a little lower, but i'm not dumping her like my last car.

have become a fan of black wheels lately on certain cars, & it looks good on your car.

But the chrome lip on the outside ruins it, paint it black and will look better & bigger :wink:
