Hey all, as you may have previously read I did the whole hub adapter thing and had a wheel fall off. So i managed to find a set of 18's in pre au fitment, I will post some pics when they are on, which should be in a few weeks. Also getting 245.40.18 rubber should make a huge difference to the ED

To be honest I don't know what they are called, they are a 5 spoke type wheel with a big lip, in shadow chrome (should look good against the cardinal red). I was looking at the BA xr8 replicas in 17" but did me a deal on the 18's for the same price. Helps to be in good with the boss. lol.

Are they Apec Apaches?

Good choice if they are. Look f**k mad.

Yeah the dish is nice, but the spokes aren't my thing. A FordMods member at Gold Coast has them on his white EF.
