Can anyone tell me whether or not AU rims would fit an EF? Do theyhave the same size stud pattern. I had a guy at a tyre garage say no. Then another guy said yes. So i'm not sure.

The only way they will fit is with the use of hub adaptors. They have the same stud patern but different offset. I am currently in the process of fitting some AU wheels on an EL myself.

On a similer subject, Will EF-EL rims fit on a EB?

Because it is getting harder to get 14 Inch tyres as most large tyers sold today are 15 inch

The reason I ask this I'm in desprate need of tyers & the only thing stocked is 15 In & 14 are getting very heard to come by new or secondhad & I'm a very tight budget right now & I need some S/H ones to keep me on the road.
