I wouldn't mind a different set of wheels for my Monaro. I do like the 2004 VXR wheels that it wears but I wouldn't mind something a bit more eye catching, certainly dished if possible. (no bling!!).

Suggestions gentlemen?

Thanks.

What you need is deep pockets imo only one's that look really nice have to be made?

You won't get deep dish (IMHO) as the offset is so great on your car. Many BMW wheels for the E36 and E46 will fit though. smile

Going by your previous post on mileage, shouldn't you be saving your money for petrol!?

Best thing to do IMO is either get the car tubbed like 007 has suggested, or, as I might be plannng on doing is to have the arches rolled before a flash over respray, this will then give you loads more choice on wheels.

At the moment, there is very little that will fit the VXR, I gave up trying after numerous phone calls.

I have deep dish fitted to mine - 8.5j rim with 45mm offset and 255 rubber. No issues at all.

I assume the 4x4 suspension helps? smile

My car is set on super low, the tyre is very close to the wheel arch !

Agreed, and there's quite a few here that appeal... www.imagewheels.co.uk/pages/wheels_billet.html

I want some PIAA Super Rozzas. They're fairly similar to the VXR ones, but 5kg lighter per wheel, and have a bit of a dish.

Downsides? Cost. Only from USA really, nobody sells them here any more as the yen to pounds isn't good

My car was lowered and they still cleared fine. Raised it back up as got sick to death smashing the front bumper to bits on speed bumps, car park ramps, curbs, etc.
