No they won't as the off set is diferent...

You will need to use hub adapters, you can purchase them from many wheel shops at about $300 for a whole set.

Before anyone jumps in and says that there il-legal they aren't it is spacers that are il-legal.

the stud pattern is the same but the offset is different. youll need to buy spacers or adapters from a wheel shop. the spacers are not recomended as it's not only illegal but can also weaken wheel studs and snap them off as nuts have less thread to tighten on and the wheels are weighted further out on studs

they are legal. i have them for my ba gt wheels..

the money you'll spend getting some second hand au2 xr8's you can get some new ones which have the e series offset for $1200-1400 mark as i said. it'd be easier and wiser..

They suite pretty much most cars fitted on, i had them on for 3 years almost till just other week and now ba gts ... heres a few members cars with them .....

God i s**t bricks when i saw my car on there, its the silver one. Thanks for using my car as a demonstration. I have to post some new picks since i only have one.

I picked up those rims and tyrres brand new with e series offset i think for $1250 around there maybe a bit more. They are a nice rim and really suite the eb/ef/el depending on the colour of your car.

I like your new rims fuzion they are hot!!!!
