hi
i am buying a calais v shortly in evoke & i will be fitting some new rims.thats the problem!i cant find any that i like that are available.the only rims i can find that i like are the lenso konvex.i want 19x8.5 & 19x9.5 but they are not available in australia at the moment.dont want to go any bigger,not into chrome bling,prefer something with a bit of black or gunmetal or shadow chrome,want as much lip as possible & no thin 5 spokes as i think they need to have bigger brakes to look good.well thats my brief,should be easy heh?any suggestions you may have seen around the place that you think would work,i would appreciate your help.attached is pic of lenso konvex to give you an idea.just a quick photoshop.
cheers

Yeah they are 19x8 front and 19x9.5 rear Petrol Metrix with Kumho Ku19 245/40R19 275/35R19. Cost me $2800 with 4 wheel alignment, nitrogen and locknuts. Sold the old Calais rims and tyres for $700 on eBay.

They have a polished stainless steel lip, not machined alloy.

The ride quality was virtualy unchanged from the original 18" std tyres.
