Is it possible to put BA rims on an EL ? and also how much would it cost to get a full set, second hand , or new?

You can do it but you need an adaptor from Ford, $75 per wheel. From the AU onward they changed the studd pattern. My neighbour tried to swap EF XR6 with a AUII XR6, they didn't fit so he rang Ford and thats when he found out. Yes you can do it.
Dam Rapier beat me!!! I'm too slow at typing :lol: :lol:

i got BA rims on my eb2 (look in gallery).

they are the replica one so they are suited to the pre AU offset. i paid just over 1300 for the set with new tyres. chrome nuts and 4 locknuts
