I got the feeling you guys thought all the rims were s**t I showed and thought chrome wasn’t a good move so if you have any better suggestions in 20' rims I would be keen to here them as this is one of the key focus points on my car

Thanks Al

Personally, I wouldnt get anything past 18". Especially chromies. they look s**t and big wheels cost f**k in rubber. There is nothing wrong with AUII XR wheels, they look s**t hot and not all that expensive on rubber.

Plus they would be cheap than your chromies too ;)

Yeh they may look alright dude...at the end of the day i wouldnt be concerned with making a decision based on th approval of others...go with what u or ya close mates reckon is gonna look hot .. diff ppl like different stuff and when it comes to your ride...u payfor the darn thing so u should be the only deciding factor when it comes to spending more money on it :P

Theres loads of options available in the 20" market with the assistance of multi fit bolt on hub adaptors and advise to do the right thing and seek prior approval from a recommended engineer in your area...and even more so an engineering certificate afterwards...saves alot of drama later on plus shows their a safe mod.

Remember that size rims will greatly effect your ride comfort, how your suspension and handling perform....not too mention rim repairs, the rims and tyres themselves are very costly and will generally wear loads quicker due to the camber and weight distribution changes with high speed conering etc....but u make the choice dude what ever u think is gonna look hot go with

Basically do exactly what BigKev said.
You shouldn't have too many drama's finding 20's, seeing as your car is an AU. Just about all of the 20's for Falcons are for AU/BA offset.
Usually something polished or silver looks better than just about any chrome wheel. But thats just my opinion.
Go with what u like.

hey man....those wheels on ebay look tough as....would suit any ford i rekon...im a fan of machined rims but chrome can look just as tough if th ride is slammed on them...usually darker cars(meanin black or dark blue, purple) will look good on chrome but personally if its white go machined finish...just personal opinion. end of th day ur ride, ur wheels, ur acheivement.......
