Do any manufacturers produce copies of the BA GT rims (not GT-P) to suit EL?

Edit: Coz I would like to buy a set but don't want to buy BA ones and use spacers

Nah, dude they haven't yet im sure they will sometime. But from my point of view there an awesome wheel but there isn't such a big demand for it.

Dude you don't have to use illegal spacers, do what i did use "legal" adapters i have BA XR6 rims on my EL looks horn and the adapters haven't gaven me trouble yet, they have taken quite a beating numerouse revers 180's although i heard they cause problems on excessively lowered cars. :)

well fuzz if your over them then if you sell em cheap you may have a buyer.
As for the BA GT rims i reckon that would be sweet, on an e-series car, or even the F6 Typhoon rims.

you can often find the BA and AU factory wheels to suit Pre-AU on eBay.com.au. Best bet is to ask the companies/people selling them for the ones your looking for...

Sheesh - I reckon that's the 1000th time you've said that :P

We all wanna be like Pee-Air lol. The same is happening with EL GT's...first the copies and now the cheap genuines...but I'm not complaining - I still love them to death :)

Matt - Just keep hanging mate...they'll come eventually hehe.

Cheers,
Steve

there's less and less variety in the wheels avaliable for Pre-AU's, so for those that don't want to use hub adapters, many people are going to have the same wheels!
