I have just bought a BA futura wagon, just wondering what the offset is for BA's is it 35p?

I cant find the exact number in any of my searches, i know pre au are around 6p cos they run the old rear-wheel offset but i dont know about the BAs and AUs.

I was keen to put these mags on...

That sounds about right. I have heard of 30mm spacers being used on e-series with au-bf wheels

i thought it sounded right too, but really wanna be sure,

my old ef wagon had a 6p offset, i had 18 inch advanti rpm rims on it, in the 6p so no spacers (i hate them), still got the rims, no good to me now though cos of the BA (my ef wagon got written off), putting them on my mums car now!!!(96 efII wagon) lol,

you want my honest opinion? you will trash these wheels the first big bump you hit and they will be money down the drain. If you do get them then be VERY careful where you drive. I saw some wheels like this recently that had run over a roundabout and the rims were smashed off. there is not enough rubber left to protect the car and wheels. They look great but are best for show and shine days etc.

i am taking that into consideration,
i'm gunna get some fpv wheels, 18s but was just thinking about these ones too, i dont think the metal is that tough either, seen a similar wheel on a VE SS, one rim had been curbed and the whole lip was rooted, i just saw them and thought they would be wicked on my wagon though, its black with tints, currently on BA 17 in xr6 wheels
