Hey boys, i have a BA Fairmont Ghia, she is a beautiful car but it was painted yellow, i would be a taxi!! so i was thinking of adding a full XR bodykit to it, and being a colour they dont make XR's in (maroon) it would definently make it a nice car, my only quarm is would it look good with the current rims on it?

what do ya recon boys?

get some zenetti fusions 19"... f**k the kit.a ba ghia can go without a kit and look hotter than XR. looks better without plus its like stuffing sock down your undies putting a kit from a more powerful car on :D

These BA Ghia's are the hottest i've seen. Just lower it an some fat wheels.

The black one has zenetti fusions (best lookin rims ever) :lol:

personally i wouldnt go bigger than 18" rims, and not totally overboard with the lowering as it tends to be a pain in the ring when u go shopping etc...

While I was in the states I looked around a wheel shop and spotted 26" rims. I really would hate to pay for tyres for them. 20" are common over there and sell for $1,299 USwith tyres. I've seen 19" on AU's and they look cool on them
