Personally i only like them in 24inch diameter rims and sitting on a hummer/H2.

Havent seen them "in the flesh" on a sedan...

BTW - prepare to be flamed by some of our "conservative" members, lol 8-)

there is a red ef/l in my area which has them on, and in my opinion it is the worst thing you could do to a falcon.. looks cheap and ricey almost like those carbon fibre tickers people put on their petrol flaps.. dont do it man...

lol i am always prepared to be flamed by conservative members. what i hate about them is that someone will probably steal them, so i wound have to take them off everytime i park my car. My car is a white EL, and the spinners will be chrome of course. im gonna see if i can try them on before i buy, just so i can see what they look like

you could always get some small cable-ties or something to hold them on - if someone really wants them, they'll rip 'em off, but might be worth putting them on anyways

They may be pretty to look at but they are so so sad ....
Theres a little yellow toyota echo in my area that has spinners, its funny to watch them spin when she stops at lights, like its doing some kind of cool burnout minus the waste of rubber.
Overall though, dont get em they would suit a falcon even less then they suit an echo, and they really DONT suit the echo...

Also, Chrome is overated, try chrome shadow instead :D
