time for some new alloys for the GT-P got to be 18x8.5 or bigger :D
looked at some BBS wheels but $7500 is a bit much.
any suggestions and photos


Thanks

I normally dont talk herrod stuff up much, but i think their rims on BA's look awesome!
Also dont get chrome with your colour gt-p, would look real tacky imho..
I say go the herrod or the likes.. :P :idea:

haha .. very right there, maybe get a 355 when you get a flat or need a spare 5th wheel too.

Depending on colour, i presonally like the bbs style criss-cross rims which are shadowchrome with chrome/polished ring on the outter.. looks always good ..

Well if the herrod/bbs wheels are out of the Question due to price, how about some look a likes?
Im sure there has to be some around somewhere!
Id go have a chat to a local rim/tyre "consultant" (as they like to be called now im told) theres a few decent places around, but not sure of any out FTG way. :roll:

Advanti Chile's are pretty close. I have a set on my car.

Whatever you do, think big, think real big. Don't settle for anything less than 19". :)

Dazza these look the ducks nuts on the BA and are available in 8.5's and 9.5's

Here's a pic of them on a BA 'Mont

My other suggestions are a set of either FR or OM Simmons but you'll need some coin.

The one's on the RX7 or on the BA? The RX7's are silver and the BA's are shadow chrome. Here's a pic of the chrome http://www.tempetyres.com.au/products_c ... art_no=205 Much shinier especially on the sides of the spokes.
