What size are you getting them in?
Need to be 18s/19s, many spokes and deep dish look s**t in 17s (or god forbid.. smaller :cry:).
Cars gonna need serious dumpage too.
Vote for 2, only because I don't think the black/shadow centres will suit the colour of your car.

Hmmm, that's the next step, getting someone to photoshop (when I get a picture of my car with the appropiate angle for the pictures of the wheels) to scale so I can see how it looks.

What is the difference, generally, in the cost of tyres between my current 15s and one of these 18s. Starting to worry about the long term costs now, lol. Aren't the prices of tyres that suit 18s coming down because so many cars get released with that size rim nowadays?

Thanks lads.

the 18's arent really all tht much dearer. depends on what you buy. we can sell 18 inch starting from around 200 -250ish an go right up to about 600ish

unless there are some really cheap tires that we can get onto

17's and 18's these days are cheap as chips. The 19's prices are still up there a bit though.
But i've seen new 18's tyres going for around the $150-$180 mark.

Lol, not too sure what tyres I'd want to be experiencing at 180 a tyre for 18s.
I get whatever second hand tyres I need from north west tyres in reservoir, if you tell the guy there daniel with the with fairmont sent you he'll look after you, my uncle got a set of 18" dunlops for his SS to sell it at 80% tread for $400 balanced and fitted.

Yeah but for $250 a tyre i can get Falkens, which aren't too bad of a tyre, and 18's have a pretty big price difference to the 19's.
