Paint them holden hsv "champagne" and piss the walls off, Simmons are a classy rim, it's not worth playing boy racer and doing walls IMO.

not a bad idea.

Well for the 17's i got a good price on them. 17x8, 2 inch lip all round, might get the rears with a 3inc, since 2 lips is a bit scuffed up.

For the 18's i could just put another $800-$1000 on it and get some 19's.
so all i want is polished fr20's ( not any time soon since its 5 k)

Thought ill do the fr17's and get my self a THREE WAY ELECTRIC SUNROOF

---------- Post added 02-01-13 at 19:09 ----------

5--- Gold
2--- Silver
1--- Hsv champagne

Either Champagne or Silver I reckon.

I think Champagne would be best because its not quite as common as well.

Gold but do the whole centre piece Inc the outer edge where the bolts go thru (if u know what I mean) and leave the lip polished- makes the wheel look bigger in my opinion

go 16" gold centred B45's instead, they suit the era of the car best and no young guy wanna be racer look

plus good tyres are very cheap in that size

I find it funny how he asked about what wheel colour and instead half of these posts tells him on what rim he should change too..

:P arr 2 inc lip on the front is enough i guess.


remember seeing your white vl exec on the Simmons. would you have a rough clue on how much it would cost for two rear 3 inc lips. also is there much difference on the stepped lip .. ?


So far i think its going to be gold

9--- Gold
5--- Silver
2--- Hsv champagne

+1 white.... but silver would probably look more uniform on the car to match the lower moulds
