why waste your time? you will most likely never come across a set here in Australia even if there is such a thing. Chasers are an a-s-s looking rim anyway designed for practicality and function or for skidding the rears if you don't want to damage your good rims. If you want to go an 18+ rim, why would consider chasers? go for something half decent for your vl IMO.

I see wheee ur coming from but I like the bt1 look. Iv seen vls with the 16inch chasers and I think tucking a set of white walled 18 inch silver steelies would look killer

i saw a few sets of 17s for sale in aus around 18 months ago or so and they wernt cheap around 800+ for the 4 rims alone without machining

you can buy the 18s in the usa but the place doesnt sell or ship to aus so you have to get someone there to buy an ship to you pretty sure this is them

cheaper on amazon
http://www.amazon.com/Chevy-Caprice-.../dp/B00AZ7QQWY

but not cheap at all when you consider that price an the value of the au dollar atm and you would need to get them shipped and then machined to fit on the vl like the ve rims

theres someone around aus doin a 20 inch chaser but they were damned expensive theres some pics of them on a vn floating around


much better wheels floating around for that money instead of some oversized heavy assed steelies
