Hello fellow fordmoders.. I have had a quick browse for prices to get ba rims machined or a bracket for them but have been unsucessful.. Want to get a general idea of how much as i can get a set of clean xr rims for 300 with tyres off a mate.. Links to some sites would be much appreciated

u will need a set of hub adaptors, they are about 35mm thick and bolt to your hubs with the factory wheel nuts, then they have 5 studs where u can bolt the BA wheels on with new nuts.
do a search on ebay there is normally a few sets there, make sure they have 1/2" unf threads on them too, not the 12mm jap type threads.

ive been running AU XR 17's on my EL for the last 2 1/2 years without any problems.
a few guys here have run their cars at circuits and drags with them too.

the hub adaptors will need to be engineered to your car for them to be legal

Be careful buying Hub adapters off Ebay. Ensure that they are good quality Aircraft billet aluminium and quality studs. Try a good tyre/ wheel placeand see what they can come up with. Best idea is to get the correct offset to suit E series.

Only other issue is that Hub Adapters are illegal in NSW and will stuff your insurance if you have an accident, touch wood you don't. Stupid thing is that they can be used for racing but not on the road. :?

Its about 250 for a set of spacers.
They will normally only void insurance if they were the cause of the accident. I was hit ages ago, inspector only looked at the damage (other person was at fault), checked rego n shiz and that was it.
