    No, sorry I don't have a bigger picture. It is a car that is on carpoint and am just wandering what wheels they are because I really like what I saw

    http://www.carpoint.com.au/used-car/HOLDEN/COMMODORE/Victoria/1786468.aspx

    This may be hard to explain, but between each wheel spoke, their is like a rectangle divet if you get me. Basically, between each spoke, it isnt just flat metal it sorta dips down into a rectangle, and they have the HSV logo in the middle of each wheel, but these might have just been put in as the guy told me that one got stolen and that he was buying a new one

    Sorry if none of this makes sense

    looks like the VT Shadow Silver GTS alloys to me....

    Tho im sure they come in 18" as it's a HSV alloy, but in the link given
    they are saying 17" alloys, may even be an imitation

    but being an R8 body kit, the earlier versions of the GTS alloys may have
    been 17"

    ok i don't want to change topic of the VT ones, but while we're talking about this, i'm wondering if anyone knows exactly what these ones are?
    i bought a set of them in 18 inch (copies), but don't know exactly what model they are from. are they a 2004 CV8R?

    i thought they might have been at first, but the vx gts originals look like the ones below - they have the angled indent. mine just have a slit cut out, with black inside. i thought they were a different model??

    Nah they're regarded as VX GTS clones.

    If it was an exact copy they'd have major legal issues with ROH.

    There will always be little differences in clones.

    They still look mean as.

    Those ones at the top are a Speedy version of the VT GTS.

    I have an LWT version in chrome, but I remember the Speedy from when I bought mine 6 years ago :)

    DOn't think they are made any more after HSV and ROH cracked the shits about copright :(
