I would say the XR rims out of those 3 - IMO the other 2 just don't suit at all.

Look in my gallery as I've got the 18in Typhoon rims fitted and mine is also a Gunmetal EF. I like them but they really show off my tiny brake rotors :( The MKII 19's look sick BUT don't really suit the EF shape I don't think and the XR rims are way too common.

IMO there are much nicer wheels out there than these but they are a hell of a lot easier to source and cheaper to buy.

I agree with you, but wait a couple of months. So many people will have the typhoon wheels.

Too true. Like I said, there are a hell of a lot nicer wheels out there but you either have to use hub adaptors or pay through your a*** for correct offset ones.
