Hey guys, I'm trying to decide which one of these rims would better suite my car if at all. I'd really like a rim with more spokes than these, but there are none, so I give up.

If anyone has an EF/EL Falcon, etc. with some BA XR8 18s, and their car is preferably super low, please post your pictures up.

And if anyone has a EF/EL Falcon, etc. with BF GTP wheels in 19inch, and their car is preferably super low, please post a picture too.

I neeeeed to decide, my dad leaves for Doha this month, and mum will follow in a few weeks. Then it's crazy spending timeeeee, lol.

Attached pics of wheels, and my car side on. If anyone has time for photoshop, feel free to have ago. But keep in mind the XRs are 18, ad the GTPs are 19.

Cheers all.

Hey lil_lincoln, thanks for your reply. Yeah I talked to the guy on ebayer, as he's out of stock of the 18s copies, but more in 2 weeks apparantly. And yes, friendly guy thus far.

Thanks for the pic, and if you're going to take more pics, some wide shots of your car with them on would be great also.

if you want spokes, alnd lots of em.. find yourself a set of TE50 SIII wheels and hub adaptors..

but i agree hard to find wheels with spokes that are not blinged out crap looking chromies.

But i have to agree with lil_lincoln, wait the 2 weeks. the 18" copies look amazing on EF/EL's

Hey Horris, thanks for posting that picture. I don't mind them actually, I like the Gold. How much were they if you don't mind me asking? And do they come any smaller?

Thanks ISQUIK, seems I'm losing my interest in the BA XR8s every day, lol. Shame, seeing as they are cheap.

No one likes the GTPs?
