Is that price for all four or each!!!
Nice looking but I wouldn't pay that kind of money for new rims. Maybe for a nice sports car, not an Acadia. :eek:hno:

No big deal I hardly ever clean my wheels or my vehicles for that fact LOL. The wheels really remind me of Beemer wheels.

I would like the Pheonix or the Wellington. I would love for Fittipaldi or OZ or BBS to make some wheels for our truck.

ahhh.. I like your style!!! The really sporty look. If and when you upgrade wheels will you also be lowering the Acadia? Perosonally I think the Acadias would look Awesome in some 22" or 24" with a 1 or 2" drop. I think it's just a matter of time before someone does up an Acadia.. Can't wait to see one...

Here is a picture of the Titan I traded up for the Acadia. The wheels didn't last me long. Sold them in a matter of 8 months. I couldn't bare the thought of rolling on $4000 Rubbers.

No I wouldn't lower the Acadia due to the fact we will be towing with it so I don't want to take any chances on having it bottoming out or destroying the wheels and tires should something happen. I think I am going to send a note to Fitti OZ and BBS to see if they would be willing to make up some wheels for our vehicles.

I like them. I agree they are more at home on a sports car, but the design is current and would look good on an Acadia.

They look similar to the 18" ADR Classics I got for the RX7:


$850 for 4 (figuring the price is Canadian, eh?) seems aboot right for new name-brand wheels. I looked at Tire Rack for a 2008 Acadia & they ranged from $159~209 each. None were that style.

I paid $735 for a set of 4 used with like new high speed rated (W) tires on them. They had been on a Mustang & the guy sold the car but kept the wheels.

Nice wheels Blue and yes they are great on a sports car but I feel an Acadia would look pretty stellar with those for new shoes. I have always loved that style of wheel from teh first time I saw them on a 5 series Beemer back in the day.

So I emailed OZ BBS and Capitol Forged to see if any of them made wheels for our Acadias. I have heard back from Brian of Capitol so far.

Here is my e mail to him and his reply.

I am wondering if you make the Wellington Soeul or
> Pheonix to fit the 07-09 GMC Acadia. I am looking at the 20" with black
centres
> and a machined lip nothing chromed or polished.
>  
> Darren Stark

Yes we can any of our designs for that vehicle in the any you choose . If
you have any other questions please do not hesitate to call our office .

Thank You For the Inquiry . Look forward to hearing from you .

My neighbours son has those in 24" on his trailblazer. I am not a fan of chrome or polished aluminum it just looks cheap to me.

Man, that thing is so hot I can hear it sizzling! I could imagine a new standard for Indiana state troopers .. put some stealth "patrol" lights in the windshield, and boy - there's a cool pursuit!

NICE! I like the look specially with it being lowered 1.5" The fenders are almost hug'n the tire! What size?

What's with the green headlamps and fog? Are those legal?
