Tough decision no doubt, I see too many of the same rim on different BA's.

When I was in the process of getting an AU ghia I loved the T series rims, multispoke, but now I got the BA instead, I dunno what rims to get either, I doubt the T series rims would look much good on it.

Anyhow, have you taken a good look at http://www.tempetyres.com.au/index.asp , heaps of decent rims on there, but you cant see them on your car before you buy unforunately, so maybe you can ask someone to photoshop it for ya.

17's on an XR6T isn't an upgrade at all. Go 19's or 20's.. they'll look sweet. Especially if you go black face with chrome or silver lip.

Yeah like Glen says, its a big car so you need big rims. If your on a budget then obviously 18"s at least :)

The tyres for my stock 17" rims cost the same for 19" rims :?

I suggest the current model BFII Typhoon rims ... very nice wheels indeed.
