Hey, thanks it is pretty clean huh :D
To much time on my hands i guess, plus i used sum polish stuff i got from supercheap....lol
i was lucky enough to find one with a nice clean interior.

Too many to choose from, i like the look of chucking huge 19" chromeys on it as well. But i guess i want to kind of keep the kinda factory look, i know its obvious but what do you think of puttin el/ef xr8s with low profiles? can you get them in bigger than 16"? Does anyone here have the EL/F GTs on thier car?

Thanks guyz

Genuine only come in 16" but you can get them from ANZ in 17", I used to have a set on my old EF GHIA, if your trying to stay with the factory look I'd stay with the 16"s or go for AU2 Tickford 17"s..

Check this place for some replicas, unsure if they will fit an E series though. I'm chasing some 17/18" Ford/Tickford wheels myself and Im waiting for the guy to get back to me about fitment for an E series.

Will AU2 Tickford 17"s fit an E series offset though or are spacers/adapters needed?

Genuine AU2 Tickford 17"s won't fit an E series without adaptors, but ya can get aftermarket ones in E series offset which look identical..

After looking at another thread AU III Rebel 18's i think they would suit quite nicely or EL GT's AU T Series with adapters are also a possiblity !! either way - you will find somehting that will look nice mate - good luck in the hunt

CSA Edge, Gladiator or force 2 look good.

Have a look at some really chrome offset rims, they look really good on low EL's

You are best running adapters if you want a wider range.
