Well i have been searching for a while and finally got some rims. thank christ, as it was looking like too much of a grandpa's car.

anyways they are the BA XR rims 18" 235x40.

Lowering is on the way, just gotta get rego and insurance out of the way with this month, so hopefully next month getting her lowered with pedders shocks and springs. Also getting tinted windows and installing the subs/speakers/amps in a few months down the track.

mate i paid roughly $1600 brand spankers delivered with tyres, but had to get wheel nuts to fit,so that bumped it up a bit.

not sure on second hand ones, these are in the e series offset, so they fit on nicely without the need for spacers or hub adaptors.

Shaawwwweeeeeeeeeettt!!!!

But then I'm biased to the over-accessorised Falcon's anyway, at least I know what mine would look like with those rims. hehehe.

And I'll tell ya now, doing the suspension will transform the way the car handles. And best bet is to remove the mudflaps before you lower otherwise you'll end up losing them anyway (from experience).

Then all you need is a bit fat set of brakes like mine and she'll stop on a dime as well.. :D :D
