5 x 112 is a stud pattern, it is not an offset. You'd need to find out what the offset is to determine if they're correct. By the way, they're the right stud pattern.

BTW - I'm pretty sure that the Falcon stud patter is 5 x 114.3, might be wrong, Google could probably tell you.

Not sure I feel 114.3 sounds familair, bu not sure, can you just try them or is it ebay or something, ask them what they came off.

Anyway none the less if they aren't I have seen wheels with slotted stud wholes, which i gather is for multifittment, also people have drilled new sets of wholes in there wheels.
Not sure on legality/safety of either though.

The offset is correct though.

Stud pattern for ford is DEFINATLY 114.3mm. Redrilling then is risky business, only do it/get it done if there is plenty of meat still there.

Well try it, and see the result for yourself. With the "only 2.3mm" difference, your wheel nuts wont tighten into the nut bosses, the wheel wont stay in the contre of your hub, you'll snap the studs off, and next thing you know your in jail for vehicular manslaughter.

Good idea.

Yeah man its not a cool idea, even half a mm is no good, it just dont work. Thats why such measurements have such small tolerances.

5x112 will not fit on a falcon (as has been stated before).

If it helps you get rid of them they should fit some Audis, Mercs and Volkswagens.
