A vote for the stockies here, get them chromed and widened at the back.

Just bought widened stockies for the back with fat tyres, and 6" wheels at the front with skinny tyres and fake chrome paint, looks tougher than bling wheels imo

I don't mind stockies, Just as long as they are EF-EL stockies instead of the AU-BA items. But out of all 3 pics I like the 2nd set of wheels the best.

Chromed stockies?

Stockies for sure, I don't think the typhoon wheels suit E-Series at all.

Wow thanks for the replies fellas! Yes i really do like the stockies.....

PLUS its cheap :P lol would any1 have an idea of how much they cost to be widened... I wanna run the AU-BA ones because they are 16's i dont really like the Ef-El ones as much...

Could they modify the offset as well....i doubt.. ill have to get hub adapters

Chromed stockies is just taking a bad thing one more step in the wrong direction...

As for the 2 rims that were photoshopped, they are both s**t.

maybe black 16" stockies? maybe widened for the back, to have that deep dish look.

But, as someone who has had stockies on the car for about three years now, the wanting to get some nice mags becomes to overwhelming. So, i would just say get a nice set of mags.

Stockies are awesome BECAUSE they are poor, you have to embrace the fact your E-Series is a cheap s**t, and treat it as such.
