dont know if you noticed dude, but they're 5-stud

if you've done a 5-stud conversion, you can find much sexier wheels than that!!

that said, I think they'd look ok

youd be suprised!

whilst the 5 x 114.3 is a much more common PCD, the mags that are actually available in +8mm offset look woeful (designed for old falcons)

unless you want to dish out on mega $$, 5 stud is still a PITA - not as much as 4 stud, but still... getting anything decnt looking with a bit of dish is hard work!

hmmm not on an MA61

how about stock MA70 wheels?

or if you want cheap and easy to get some 15x8/9/10 12 sloters may look ok on an MA61... my MA45 seems to have the same shitty offset too Grrrrr

sure allan, you wanna make em fit? ma70 offset is all wrong ~38mm if i recall...

gotta be big enough to slide over 310mm rotors w/ st205 calipers, and once again, even getting 16x7 or 16x8 steelies in +10 offest is either impossible, or expensive (depends how you look at it eh?!)

Glen - im not keen on the whole simmons thing Confused
the ones on the red esprit look alright... $$ ?

yeah, im trying to find a decent looking dished wheel that doesnt cost a fortune. and i dont like spokes...

these kinda remind me of merc wheels, and i kinda like them. there is a fair bit of dish in them, its just no obvious.

IF SOMEONE SENT ME PHOTOSHOP *insert hint for dave*... i might be able to see how theyd look Rolling Eyes

the simmons look absolutely sexy on that car.
of course, they're quite expensive (what do you expect when you get a company to make up custom 3-piece rims for you?), and pretty heavy.
still, I'll be considering them when the bank balance says yes Smile

of course, in the black they'd only really look good on a black car

If they were all polished up without the dodgy centrecap they probably wouldn't look too bad.

The question i ask is why dont you just choose rims that you like for your car!

Or are you building the car to please someone else other than yourself Razz

yeah, i'd have to agree with most ppl so far
nice mags but just dont suit the image that an ma61 portrays
and those 2nd rims just dont seem right

get some simmons (i know $$$) but then u can choose offset and make em fatter wheneva u wish Smile
