Some 20 inch Chrome wheels have come up on ebay for AU-BF Falcons. They look like they are on an XR6. Do these wheels fit on a BA without any mods. I questioned the guy and he said they fit straight on and dont scrub anywhere? They might go cheap.

Do you need to lip the guards or fit certain tyres? They are going cheap so I thought I might grab them. My car is absolutely standard suspension so will these wheels cause a problem?

ebay, search "20 inch wheels FPV"

Well dude if you were interested in them, the last thing you do is advertise the link to everyone and possibly getting more competition and driving the price up.

Anyway i think you could do much better as that style of spokes i reckon looks totally s**t, almost like them fake chrome mag hubcaps
