The offsent and pattern are the same, just spin it by hand and make sure the rim isnt rubbing against anything before you drive.

Some x-series rims dont fit because they hit the brakes on the e-series. Most 12 slotters fit, some dont.

i put a stock xf gl rim on my old ef and it hit the rib in the caliper. i think teh 12 slot will be ok due to it being wider and probably not as thick as the gl rim.

12 slotters on an eb are not the best look in the world but if your happy with it its up to you
