Contacted eibach Aust. They quoted $400 plus postage. Ozzi tyres quoted $250 to fit plus alignment. So looking at around $700.

Your car likes great lowered. Hows the handling?

Trying to see what wheels suit. Any thoughts?

Not a fan of either. I don't think the K suits dish wheels and is more suited to a fat 5 spoke.

astraalecs Please can you start a separate thread? my Astra is getting jealous :P

I'm not a fan of any of the wheels but it's all upto you you & what you like!
They all look small, if they're 18's the mesh/lip style will always look an inch or so smaller I rekon than the size they are. The standard RS-V wheels look the best out of all of them!
If you're wanting to stick to 18's I would go something without a dish/lip and that's not meshy.

The last would be the best of the bunch to me (looks like Simmons?) but they are usually something you'd see on a rear wheel drive & completely contradict the old/new. Options are hard for our car with the PCD unless you spend abit of $ - are you planning on lowering the car at all?

Mines booked in for mid June to get some eibach fitted.

Cars standard height at moment. Had the front bar of the car swiped in a carpark and the prick drove off so the lowering springs are on hold at the moment.

The silver Simmons lookalike wheels were 17inch they were in stock to provide an idea of what they would look like on the car.

As the car has an unusual PCD 5x105 there are very few wheels that fit out of the box. The Simmons look alikes have the correct PCD and would be an 18inch if purchased.

The wheels that I like are the ones in the first photo on the front as they have a decent lip (personal preference). What is putting me off the wheels at the moment is that they need to be redrilled to fit. According to the tyre place they have to redrill the wheel and a sleave is put in place to get the correct offset. I'm not sure what the original PCD is but the place reckons its a minor difference. Personally I prefer an out of the box fitment.
