What rims suit best for my car, it is darkish green, I was looking at XR6 rims but I am open to anything.

I'm pretty much wanting to walk out of this decision with change out of $1000

Since your down in melbourne i would just get 18inch BA XR8 rims in the E Series offset. They look very good and suit the falcons nicely. I think the place to get them is wheels direct.

Plus there about 1k for a set so its within your price range.

Big rims and lowered into the guards, make your EB look hot mate. :D

Personally like the big car with big rollers look.

those BA XR8 rims come in 17" copies for e-series offset - i've got a set on my EF, and they rock! 8-) cost me $1350 brand spankers, with remoulded tyres :wink:

EL GT's look nice on green too. but yeah the 16 inch EL XR wheels are a safe option.

I'd say go the FTR 16's also...means you'll be able to afford a decent set of tyres too.

Cheap bastard bob :P

Alright so its down the the EL XR rims or the BA XR rims.

Does anybody have any photos of the BA rims on an E-series falcon, because I have seen thousands of the EL wheels on.

Also does anybody have the website for wheels direct in Melbourne?

Thanks for the pics guys, they are all great!!!

Regie!! - What did your rims cost and could your
car fit the 18's on, or was there not enough room,
that is that exact color of my car and it looks really good.

Hey Jamie,

Just a reminder that the larger the wheels you get, the more
expensive the rubber is......Can be a costly exercise to re-shoe
your car down the track...

Hope you get what you're after at any rate. Good Luck.
