Yeah chrome mags lick balls!!! They will date VERY quickly (even though I think they are dated already)

A nice set of XR rims, while not terribly original, look the ducks guts. Very nice.

Personally i reckon EL GT's, look pretty darn good on any e-series.

But if i comes down to chromies or BA/AU XR's, i would go for the AU/BA Xr's. Look tuff on any falcon. Although, head turner wise probably the chromies, but not my thing. End of the day its your money, ur car.

Thats just my 2 cents.
