    Hey guys, I've got a dilemma on my hands. I wanna get new wheels on my car and I've been getting a lot of recommendations from people. I wanted some die-hard drivers advice so I thought I'd post it up on the forums.

    My car.

    And then there's my choices.
    Either the VZ II Maloo Rims.
    [​IMG]
    Or the VY Signature rims
    [​IMG]

    Whats been frustrating me heaps is the fact that some say the VY rims are good cos they're some massive dish something or other and on the other hand I have people telling me the VZ rims look better and its just a vicious circle that's confusing me. Oh and ontop of that circle I'm also being told that keeping it stock also looks great. =/

    I've found some pictures of what the wheels look on the cars. Hopefully it can help with some comparison.

    Wheels are probably the last thing I get done to the car. But some advice really would help sort out this mess of mine.

    what do you care what others are telling you what looks good and what doesnt.
    are you doing it for yourself or for everyone else?

    what do YOU think looks good on your car - thats what you should get.

    I don't know what looks good. That's why I wanted opinions.

    I think the maloo rims look better.

    each to their own though, would look sweet with a set of my old advanti fusions on it in 18 or 19"
    theyd suit the old man colour

    Mmm thats a possibility true. But I'm not keen on making it look extremely eye catching. I don't want my car to be eye candy, just have a nice subtlety to it. I'm willing to have to deal with the prices of genuines.

    SIGS ALL THE WAY!

    nothing looks better on a VY/VZ then those beauties. Ive been looking for a set for prob over 6 months, appear to be rare as ****.

    tell me if you find some, and for some crazy reason dont buy em yourself!

    edit:

    do you know anything about that pic you have of the Calais with the sigs? they look too small to be 19's?

    Its your choice in the end you have to been seen in the car :p

    Sigs are too common these days, well they are where i live..

    I prefer the 20" VE supersports hence why I put them on my Berlina ;)

    Down in Melb, GTR. If you want second hand I honestly don't know where from you can get them, WK only does brand new.

    I'm leaning towards the VZ II Maloo wheels now.
