They look good, but I feel they are too smallish looking for such a big a** sedan.

Got my ride looking good and I couldn't be happier. Everyone i know that has seen the car reckons it looks good. The guy at tyrepower said it was the best EL fairmont he had seen in years. Spotless interior, perfect paint, not one ding or scratch and low low km's.

Cheers ...

Different rims look different. I went from a set of 15" Advanti Racings to my current 17" Speedys and the size difference isn't very noticable. Most people that see my wheels don't relise that there actually as big as 17"s. And they look decent on stock height. But I reckon if I tried some Quakes like Tims, they'd make my car look 4WD even though there the same size wheel.
The guy at the tyre shop also noticed it (when we tried on some AMG Quakes) and we decided it was because my speedys have a lip on them so the spokes are shorter.

Yeah, I've never really liked those rims either, too small for the XRs.
