    H-Pipes get da bitches mate. Everyone knows that.
    I had convo pro's on it originally, but I decided I didnt like them anymore so I flogged them off and shoved some random steelies on for now. I am contemplating either putting black street pro's on (17" probably) or else going the tried and tested torque thrust route. Probably a 17x10 rear and a 17x6 or 17x8 front?

    Nah Torque Thrusts are too common I reckon, leave em to the Mustang and Camaro crowd.

    Tough drag style wheels as mentioned or something "pro tourer" looking maybe?

    I like these as they fit the "pro tourer" look of something that's more than just a cool old jigger but has some performance. Not sure if they'd suit on such a big car or look to modern and racey? But I like em!

    Yep, above choice is spot on. Looks Hallibrand influenced.

    Torque thrusts are like the Seppo version of Simmons FRs, they're farking everywhere.

    Would also look pretty good with these: https://www.weldwheels.com/product/s71/

    Point taken. Piss98 wtf are those called?? I rekon they would loom good in 17s.
    The weld s71s are fucking tits. That was actually another wheel I was considering...
    I also thought of running black steel circle track wheels too... be kinda cool.

    Looking good mate, those wheels and tyres will be fine for skid testing first.
    What? You'd get thong slap without the H pipe like a dirty old 308.

    That's what I mean, H pipe = thong slap. Mine had an H pipe when it came from the US, the change in sound when Scott made me an X pipe was bigger than I expected (although on a pissy little 8 like mine it sounds more like an inline 6 at high revs but still plenty of womp-womp at normal speeds.)
