sold my AUII XR8 reps the other week so im on stockies all round for a while, until i get the $$$ for the rims i really want. What you all think?? Personally i think it looks alright, kinda suits the car as everything is black and white now, blackened my side indicators to suit as well.

im not a fan of the "interceptor" look, plus they have %&*$ all grip. with ur indicators y dont you get clear one's i have a set and they look tops, plus they work.

plus having stokies will make u save hard for ur new wheels to get rid of them.

I'll be getting some clearys, but when I get rims. For the moment the black indicators match the black wheels, body striping, and the black windows (very tinted)

The black ones work, the whole thing doesnt light up, just the middle.

hahha, true.

unlike most commodores with stockies though my car has a bit of motor work to make it move a bit quicker. unlike the VN with stockies, pod and no rear reso.
