your english is a little confusing lol..

anyway..the stud pattern is the same, but the rim offset is different...
the only way to get them to fit is by using hub adaptors,(illegal but does the job)

thats a hard question to answer, as some would so no they are not safe, some would say they are fine..
ive know of cars that have used adaptors for years without problems,
but have seen cars on here that have had a wheel fall off "apparently" because of the hub adaptors.. :|

i guess they are illegal for a safety reason..
but i think you need 30mm thick hub adaptors to use au or similar offset rims..

i think its the spacers that are illegal/unsafe. adaptors arent, well they arent illegal here anyhow and i've read they need a hubcentric locator ring to be legal/safe

I'd say as long as you use quality adapters and studs, and check them regularly to make sure they aren't coming loose etc, you would be fine.

If the wheels are off an R33, they probably aren't exactly the right offset however, as there are a range of slightly different fitments for the Jap cars, depending on the desired fitment of the wheels.

This may mean you will have to play around with getting the right adapters to ensure the wheels won't hit on the steering upright/brake caliper/anything else.

It really is much simpler to just get wheels in the correct offset, unless you really want a particular design that aren't available in E-Series offset.
