Hi there my XY has a lot of work before I get it to look like this but with Photoshop I can see what maybe it would look like.

What do you think , what wheels should i use , ect

I don't think the photoshopped colour looks like the real colour so it should look much better with the correct paint. IMO the wheels don't suit but that's probably because I couldn't go past a fat set of B45 Simmon's on an XR-XY

Same, go with some older style wheels, modern wheels look s**t on older cars.

Yeah the paint and venetians look awesome!

With the wheels though you have to go pimping old skool style, modern wheels just wouldnt cut it on that car.

Simmons FR17s or 18s would suit it. Ive seen a couple of XYs with these wheels and they look awsome. B45s are nice too and with a bright colour car you can get away with colour coded centres.

Looks great, except the wheels aint my cup of tea..
If it were me, I'd go for 14" chrome 12 slotters and some
beefy rubber.

Or alternatively, I've seen something similar to
a "Performance Wheel AP-7" (at 15") on an XP sedan and it
looked great.

All the best for the project.
