yeah 19" would look pretty good mate, i got ba xr 17" on my au, look decent with the superlows. There a bloke around da area drving a burgundy au with 18" ba xr wheels(da chrome ones), n fkn hell its looks really good, really considering putting them on my car. It comes down to personal preference if u wanna stick with ford wheels or go something after market, and also how much u wanna spend, personally if i was goin to go 19" i would put on gt-p wheels, cant go wrong.

Go #1, the starcorp fusions in the 19" widepack. It'll look sweet as man. I just fitted 19" widepack starcorp impuls on my AUII a few weeks ago and they look hot with the big chrome dish. Check out my gallery.

Speedy do a rim much like the fusion called "cheetah" available with a black centre and polished dish. It looks very nice.

I still prefer the fusions though.. bigger dish and probably cheaper than speedy's too.

personal preference, but i dont like the style of most the mags posted on here, like the 1st pic, i prefer the defined look like the 5 spokes are great, this is my preference only, but i think those that spurt out into many spokes look really gay. i had roh furys on mine, it looked alrite, ive seen them on a few au's and they suit the style of car, but i left them on when i upgraded to the ba cos they wouldnt have suited.

Definitely like the Fusions that Glenn posted up.

LG has the Advanti Chile.
Tempe have a version of them called Starcorp Challenge.

$2100/set with rubber.

Another cheap set they have is a really nice 5 spoke 19" wheel called Starcorp Eclipse.
Heres a pic of them on 70AST
