Currently has stock fairmont alloys (15in) but would like to upgrade to any xr6/8 wheels or BA gt wheels

my question is, how much would a set of four cost? and do they bolt straight on?

they most likely require a spacer. i have au fairlane rims on omina and the y need a spacer so they fit though mind you the rear rims are a pain to get off . had to put the spare on the other dsay and had to get a block of wood and hammer to hit it off the spacer



kangaroos and radiators are a bad mixture

the problem arises if you want non-factory wheels, as fords from au on run a front wheel drive offset (probably sue to the high number of jap cars and the demand for aftermarket wheels) where pre au used the old rear wheel offset. I wanted roh furies for mine but didnt like the idea of spacers so was limited to selecting advanti rpms or roh - cant remember the model now but you see most fords/holdens with them (bugger forgotten the name) or a 3piece custom, in the end i got the rpms, i like the wide lip look and they suit my wagon, only prob the largest they come in is 18x8
