Hey there Gakinator, welcome to the forum. As to your BA wheel purchase, you will need spacers to fit them as they are the WRONG offset to fit onto EA/EB/ED.

I believe ther is someone selling a set in the For sale section of the forum.

thanks papa smurf.

i'm probably gonna give a tyre dealer a ring tomorrow to see if they stock or if they can get them in for me to save freight and waiting time. do they just bolt onto the existing hub and the new wheels over the top or something more involved?

It should be noted that there are some questions regarding the legality of hub adaptors, and they may void any insurance policies you have on the car.

You can buy many of the B Series wheels new in the correct offset for the E series Falcons.

and depending on what spacers you get!! The ones ive seen bolt on to your hubs. then the rims bolt onto them!! bsa wheels do them. but you have to slightly cut your original wheel studs as there too long.. did a few when i used to own my tyre business .
