oh well anything is better than ef fairmont alloys yuk. I need to find something like el fairmont for the wagon. In fact I may just get another set of classic mags as they look pretty decent for 15" om my workhorse wagon.
BTW they look great Joolz.
I saw a set on a fairmont at the wreckers a few weeks ago and never got a price... silly me

Looking good there Joolz..........

Thought you had already been down the "superlow path",
and then reverted to lows ??
Anyway, looks fine to me with regard to levelling out, and the lows
do offer a bit more leeway for speed bumps and such...

Yeah i have had superlows on before but all around and on stock 15" EL Fairmont rims. The ride is around 15mm higher on 17's. I can pick up some front superlows for $40 so if its not right its no real loss and leave the rears on lows. Thanks heaps for the feed back guys.
