imo thin spoke wheels dont suit eseries. Chunky spokes look tougher

I had a set of ROH RT's and they looked f**k nice...... i wish i didnt sell them :cry:

Dude given it's a fairlane i would stay with the luxury look and get either the akuza or linear if you're oing with bob jane wheels both of them would ft the style of your car better... Like fordfairmont said thin spoke don't look right... they don't fill the car out enough

If it's any help here's a pic of them on a fairmont... i'm no sure who's it is though (hope they don't mind)

Chrome is all well an good, but you can't beat painted. A gunbarrel gray set of EL GT replicas or a dished 5 spoke would look very neat. I don't know why people feel the need to spend extra $$$ on 18's or 19's. Especially since the E series was never engineered to support them.

Nah Hickmanioz those rims have way too much going on... Chunkier would look better but i think they still need to be simple and classy to go with the fairlane look
