They will be the wrong offset. They should bolt up to an AU ok.

yeah after a bit of research it seems with wire wheels you have to retighten the spokes as regular maintenance.... f**k that. Plus i rang SSA and some dude that barely spoke english told me they only make one wheel in eseries offset, even though there website says the spoke rims are "0" offset :?

ok i went and seen my local beaurepaires about some wheels, was expecting ridiculous prices... BUT he showed me a pamphlet they get with monthly specials, and after only talking with him for a couple minutes he said he can do a 19" Advanti Volt package for $1500 :shock:

i know i just sold a used set of these in 18's, but these are 19's and to be honest are an 'ok' looking rim, and I couldnt be f**k waiting 5 weeks for ebay rims, when i can get bigger rims for a similar price and have it all on my car within a week

and need some honest opinions if these wheels will suit my car?!!

Yes, take the 19's :mrgreen:

To be honest they look f**k awesome on your Fairmont, the paint colour suits it well i reckon. Very good price too, only thing better than 18" volts is 19" ones :lol:

Go for it, unless you can get the cobra's in 19's for a similar price

yeah i think the dark purple paint suits darker coloured wheels more than bright alloy's. They fpv copies in 19" start at $1100 inc post, plus tyres which would end up like $1700+

this Volt package i was offered is about $400 cheaper than anywhere ive seen on the net, the bloke is not the manager there, but kinda runs the place while the boss is out, so i think i better put some f**k money down on these rims before his boss see's whats going on :lol:
