Well on monday i got some bigger brakes put on and my stupid wheels wont fit on :| So i'm looking for some new 19x8 rims to replace them.

At the moment i'm looking at:

BF II Typhoon
http://cgi.ebay.com.au/FORD-FALCON-FPV- ... dZViewItem

BF GTP
http://cgi.ebay.com.au/FORD-FALCON-BF-F ... dZViewItem

Or any other ideas people might have that would suit a BA ute in Acid Rush?

Don't get some crappy copies. There is plenty around for the BA's so go checkout some wheel stores.

Ye it will be 19s, i just used that link for the picture.

I think i gotta start looking around whenever i get a chance, i need new rims as soon as i can :|

And im going to be selling my old ones, koya rush in black, what would be a fair price to sell just the rims? They are pretty much perfect condition, just a few light scratchs on the lip from dirt.

Thanks mate, I will have to start looking around tomorrow since i finally have some time! I saw the ROH Mantis rims in the lastest street fords and they dont look too bad.

Would asking $800-$1000 for my old rims (no tyres) be too much?

Don't get GT rims. Out of those 2 go the typhoon rims because the black will match the acid rush better.

That ute HOT mate, even with the bars, gives it that sleeper look, especially knowing theres bucketloads of torque under the hood, well done mate, love it.
