yes you can...... take a set of AU stockies to an engineering mob, pay them a few hundred and walk out with the correct offset :)

yes that wil look tough thats what i wanted, its not about getting them re drilled because its the same stud patern. you need to change the offset by either doing what fordfairmont said or get spacers

they'll fit if you use adaptors.. you can use them but they're illegal..
also i'm pretty sure bf stockies are lighter than ba ones (bigger holes)
stockies are sick!

they cut off the outside band and weld a new band on at the correct offset

Will cost roughly 550 to get all four wheels done is not worth it

dont know what you mean about 'bigger holes'..... i thought theyre all the same thread spacing?

They have to take the center out of the rim and reweld it further in for the offset to be right, from what I understand. I think they may be reffering to the holes drilled around the rim itself, somewhat for decoration i believe...

agreed though black stockies do look damn nice on the right car, damn tempted to drop mine and put stockies on it rather than the Fairmont alloy's it has now, along with the gunmetal paint think it'd look pretty mean.

nice fairlane dude.
