just remember if u want them looking really big, the FR18s run the same centre as the FR17s - meaning the 'star' is still noticeably smaller than the FR19 - which are specifically designed for a 19inch application only.
that said, my brother runs fully polished FR18s on his EL and that looks tuff.


Are you serious??? IM STOKED!!
I have gold-centered FR17s on my elxr but would kill for the FR18's!
So going by what you said can i just replace the 'outer part' of the rims to convert them to the 18" version?????? I hope so! :)

Get this... and i almost sold them not too long ago to some guy that spotted them on my car at a servo who wanted to buy them then and there, lol! :roll:

I'm guessing you might have to replace the innner and outer pieces. Even if you only had to replace the Outer piece, it still definately wouldn't be a cheap exercise.
I'd be reckoning around the $1000+mark to change the outer to new polished ones.

agreed, you'd probably come out cheaper if you sold the 17s and stepped up to a complete set of 18s

Thats a bugger!
So what do you reckon a set of gold-centered FR17s would go for with goodyear eagle f1s on em (90% rubber)???

Cheers guys.

Probably around the $1500-$2000 mark. Probably more towards the 2k mark, as they have almost new tyres.

simmons are very expensive but i must admit you can not go wrong with them on ANY falcon. any car for that matter, they just always look good.

I agree, they look good, no matter what model Falcon. I mean I still find it weird that a design that is as old as they are, looks that good on new and old cars alike.
