They are made by Lenso, 17" with 245/45/17. I got them from a place in Parramatta, Sydney, called Spin City, and they were approx $1400 including tyres. I can't really remember the price but it wasn't far of this. Obvisouly are cars are very similar.

Ooo, I might be interested, they'll be easier to paint black than my current wheels!

I'd lower that ute before wheels, it just looks so wrong at the moment.
But any 5 or 6 spoke wheel usually looks tops on the Falcooons.

Hahahaha, yeah well least i am doing sumthing right .. wheels then lowering :P

may be blonde, but not THAT blonde.

Other thing is it is an Outback so it is slightly higher than standard (well so i am told) so those 15's look crap at the moment, almost too embarased to drive it around without new rims.

Not necessarily. Depends how drastic your going with the rim size and how drastic with the lowering. But if your not going overboard shouldn;'t be an issue.

it'll look even higher with bigger wheels and lower tyres. outbacks are cool, that had that hydrolic diff or something queer like that and all the bash gaurds underneath (might be handy if you drop it on the ground).

Yeah tiz hydratrack and got heaps of mudflaps underneath, and two 68 litre tanks - young guy asked me at the servo yesterday if i wanted it fulled up - said if you are willing to pay for one tank - poor bugger looked puzzled til i explained to him there was two fuel tanks.

As for the rims - going to stick with 17's and for the lowering, not going to go too low - would be nice to drive over speed humps rather than having tell everyone to get out and lift the ute up while i drive over them.

Then once that is done, then back to the panel beaters to get the bonnet done - altho thinking seriously about chaning the entire colour at the same time to that phantom colour.

lol like you would know :P Wont be going too low, and s**t if all else fails will change the front again - womans prerogative to change her mind as many times as she likes.

Naa will get the rims on and then see, will go to WA Suspensions and see what they reckon too. Def gotta do something about the rear end tho, way toooo high.
