Yep, this is what happens when you're poor and dumb.

Why pick the 15 inch ones? for performance?

BA XR6 without a doubt.

You cant get the territory ones because they have massive tyres.

EB wheels are wrong offset.

16s are ugly.

Your left with the BA XRs.

Theyre also the best performance wise.

As said EB ones wont fit. Neither will any other e series ones.

Get at least 17's or else it will just look stupid :lol:. 18's or 19's would be ideal 8-)

BA XR's if you can get a set in good condition. You'll be able to fit wider tyres on them so it'll give you good grip as long as you've got good rubber wrapped round them. Aftermarket rims in 17", 18" etc are starting to get relatively cheap so dont think you have to restrict yourself to only Ford items. There should be heaps of rims to suit AU offset.
