need some help with the decision of wheels...

atm im thinking of Vault Devilles http://wheels.my105.com/index.asp?produ ... entid=6912

i have never seen them on an EL and i want something original and eye catching..

i would also consider
http://wheels.my105.com/index.asp?produ ... entid=6912
or
http://wheels.my105.com/index.asp?produ ... entid=6905

YES THEY DO HAVE TO BE 18" :)

are u guys a fan of the chrome or normal...my first original thought for rims were FPV replica rims...they a fair bit cheaper as well but are fair common.

Im also going to dump my car... superlows or ultra lows would be the go...although ultra lows are illegal they are my #1 thought at the moment.

The only concern i have is that when i have people in the car that it is going to scrape on everything??

can i have feedback from someone that has ultras or supers on their el/ef

either of the two vaults would be ok... as long as the rest of the car wasnt jacked up like a 4wd... :lol: has to be dumped to make those rims work...

Mmm i'd have to agree with the other guys, it doesn't blend into the car, more for jap stuff,
Show us some more photos of diff rims:P,

With your ultralows, you'll be bottoming out on speed humps without people in the back...with a full car load....well good luck! haha
Unless you used to going over speed humps sideways (not drifiting), Reverse Parking, Coming out of driveways dead straigh back (til lthe front is clear of the gutter), and many other of these problems...wel thats what your going to experiance...

at least hes not going for yet another set of FPV ebay copies like everyone these days...

And to "inowereulive", those vault devilles look horrible... BUT the vault crystal's you have 2nd on your list are the ones i would buy. My bro' has them (or exactly the same design) on his R8 in 20" and they look fukin hot !!!!

one's opinion does not condemn a product to be of the same thought to every one else...

its not the finish of the rim that is rice... it is the STYLE of the rim that determins a ricy look or not..
