Ive been looking at www.tempetyres.com.au and just wheels in general an im p****d at how the pre AU falcs have such a small range of wheels that fit them. :evil:

Ive got a 95 EF falcon....why is it that there is such a small range compared to the commondores that have about 10 times the amount of wheels that suit...

Check the site if youve got time its siik i wanted the 18*7.5 HP Design - GunMetal :wink: is there anyone who can help me get round this problem.

and can someone just give me the low down about wheels wich can fit EF's.

Mate you will need hub adapters. Which are legal in some states

so the difference betwen the pre AU's and after AU's is not the position of the bolts its just that the wheel will go to far into the car?

and with these hub adaptors how do they work and do you need them for rear and front

hub adapters are basically a cylinder of metal, that you screw onto you standard eseries hubs.

they then give you a new set of studs at the correct offset.

you need them on the front for clearance, the AU wheens will fit on the rear, but look stupid and affect overall car stability

ok sweet, but im getting mixed emotions from these replies,

i gather that the offset is actually incorrect so you put on an adpator with new offset to suit the wheels...but wont this put the wheels poking out of the arch, and if you do get these adaptors are they made to suit au fitted wheels or just the most common offset. How do you fix the problem with the back looking stupid and being unstable...sory about all these questions but i just dont want to wheels that fit easy i want the ones that i like

storm where are you getting your um **cough adaptors..wat?...lol
and wat sort of offset will they take

cheers
