    hey guyz, i was down at the local rim shop looking at sum new rims for my vl and the guy said he had some original vl walkingshaw rims for $1000 with semi-new tyres. they are still original paint with 1 or 2 scratches or the front left rim was just wondering if they are worth it as a collector thing?
    oh and they r originals as they have the serial number and the momo logo stamped on them.

    The rims arnt as rare as people think, they pop up on ebay all the time, and going on the prices ive seen on ebay 1k seems a bit much, you can still buy em new from holden as well, a dealer here in adelaide has some on display, cant remember the price though. If you were going to fit em to your car, then its probably worth it, if not, i cant see them appreciating in value very much to make it worthwhile.

    Thats right they aint rare. They were first fitted to the Walky hence why they are know as that, but they were fitted to alot of the lower spec VN and VP HSV's aswell.
    After all they are a 15 year old 16" rim.......how much does he expect to get? Offer him $500

    how many walky commodores do you see with them on? not many. so there should be a few out there for sale.

    hey, a couple of months ago i was told walky rims go for around the 3k mark as they were "supposively" rare and all as soon as i saw them for 1k i kinda jumped to conclusions + the guy at the shop said that they were a very very good investment. nd soz i ment FR18's not FR19's

    were walky rims made by MOMO?? i didnt think they were. they werent MOMO stars were they? ( fat flat five spoke rim with a smooth edge ) if they were then they are worth more than the $1000 he was asking!!

    nah they were just the stock walkies 5 spoke 1 piece rims with the centre painted panorama silver and the outer rim polished metal. nd yeah they have momo stamped arount the outer edge or on the spoke

    soz, the rims r not original momos but they were still made by momo for gm so i cant see your problem. and have alook at a set sumtime and you'll see the momo and gm logo

    if they're made by momo for gm then they're original momo, like my momo stars!! generally copies wont have the logo like that on the inside, one of the ways of telling fakes ive been told.

    ill try and find the pic of some walkinshaw rims with the momo logo, but i went back to the rim shop and have been told that some of the rims have gm + momo stamp along with th serial code where as others only have the serial code so i am a lil confused but ill still post the pic when i find it.
