The BEST rims for VL's!

I have only ever seen a few type of rims that i think truly suit a vl, i find that the majority of wheels that people put on vl's dont really suit the,, i dont know why! Thats just the way i see it, i dont know about anyone else..
Some of the rims IMO that really suit Vl's are, Decorsa 5's, VE GTS, Sigs, not sure what year/model.. the common ones! and another 1 or 2 VE rims i have seen.


I was hoping everyone could post up some pics of cars and/or wheels that you think BELONG on a VL!
Ill kick it off i guess..

Cant really say which wheels look good on vls.

Depends big time on the car, kalais6 for example, that car looks so hot and the wheels look awsome, but put them wheels on a yellow bt1, and they wud look shocking.

Same with evlhsv, those wheels would look **** on a yellow bt1, yet they suit perfectly...

Totally depends on the car as said above. Which model VL, colour, body kit, how low it is etc

I have always like Momo Sports on VLs

18x8 Momo Sport


19x8.5 HP Design EVO


HSV VY GTS


HSV VX GTS


Personally I think the HSV (VX & VY) rims didn't look that good on my car, and yet they look awesome on other VLs

the majority of later model commdore rims look nice on vl's from intos to ve 20s, all depends on the style of the car and personal preference
