I prefer OEMs to keep it clean and simple. My favourite set of RR rims.

Thanks sina for the reply with pics

I've been seeing alot of replica OEM wheels in larger sizes, the 22inch stormers that AlpineM3 posted are looking to be the cleanest wheel set posted as of yet.

Will do some research on the small things needed to be done to achieve a murdered look (although it does seem difficult since its a base-spec model)

its mind boggling that people put cheap sh!tty wheels on a 70k+ car! If you are changing the wheels, go with a quality set.

I am about to send you a PM- I have two sets of wheels leftover from my Sport (not the ones in my sig, those were sold a while ago).

For the record, I was just giving an example. I don't know anything about quality brands of replica's for RR, just that they're out there. I just did a quick Google search to show you they're out there. Up to you to find quality.

Let me know when you've selected some new wheels.. if they're available in Sydney, I'll help you get them for a good price

decided to go for these. they are 22inch, 10inch wide

now for tyres... they recomend a 285/35, i think thats a little too much as contact patch is huge = more stress on internals to spin (being 22" aswell)

i think 275/40 is a better tyres size, what do you all think?

And thanks Woosh/sina for all the help
