Location: melbourne

hey,

i was just wondering if a set of BA xr8 18" rims would fit onto my EF fairmont? it has been lowered abit would that be a problem? (you can check it out in the pic)
ive got the EF xr6 16" rims on them at the moment and its not too bad.

any one have any ideas where i can get a good set of BA xr8 18" rims?
how much would they set me back?

thanks

you'll need hub adapters if there original ba items.. or you can purchase copies which are in e series offset.

sif not do a search. there's a million threads on this.
genuines will not fit unlees you lose adapters and then you run into legal and insurance issues.
The tyre factory sell copies with tyres for about 18 fitted I think.

I think we need to make a sticky about what wheels fit what car, ie GENUINE AU/BA rims DO NOT fit ANY ea/eb/ed/ef/el unless you purchase hub adaptors, though you can purchase COPIES which are suited to ea/eb/ed/ef/el use.
