hi all

i'm looking to get new wheels for my vl calais. it currently has 18 inch, 5 spoke, shadow chrome rims on it. the car is slammed and looks weird on anything smaller than 17 inch (the stockies look ****). i'm keen on sticking with 5 spokes. i dont want VY SS wheels coz everyone does it so ive been looking at VX SS wheels and monaro wheels. the problem is i cant picture what it would look like and it's a little too expensive to use 'trial & error'.

how do i decide?

what do you think looks good?

will photos help?

go to a mag and tyre shop and get them to place wheels up to your car...kneel down to eye level with the car and make a decision from there...

or take a photo of your car find a pic of the wheels you want off the net and photochop them on..

i wouldn't be keen with the VYSS mags as, like you said, everyone has them

dear hairy eater

i'll take you up on the offer... does it matter what size the photos of the wheels are and what size the photo of the car is?

not really.... can set your digi cam to 1 mp ...... if the wheels or car pic has to be zoomed up to fit in the other pic... it can get a bit blurred
just post some here to get me started..... 40 kb to 100 kb pics would be okay.

I doubt it will help you, but go here and you can get a good idea of the shape of rims on cars. They use real brands too:)

Then select your wheels using the "Wheels Tab"
