Does anyone know if it can be done without going into big $$
The rims are 17" by 8" running 235145r17's and are sp sport 3000 dunlops
i tried on the week end and there isn't much clearance and after the rims are tightened on the just lock up and don't move i think i've here of pre AU spaces but i might be tripping balls
any help would be great
thanks Cam

you need 35mm hub spacers. front and rear. they said it couldn't be done coz the spacers are illegal and wont sell them. I have run ba xr wheels in my falcon with spacers for over a year with no probs.

Spacers dont count as a defect but it is unroadworthy when u need to get a road worthy certificate. i have BA xr6 17's on my XH same profile (335/45 17)
