Spacers=illegal but easiest way. Otherwise just go to a tyre place and get them tpo change the tyres to your ef stockies. Shoudln't cost more than $20.

they fit easy on the back but look the track its heaps small& when you fit them to the front without a hub adaptor well the rim will hit the stub axel.

steel rims wont fit on adaptors because were the bolts to the adaptor the rim bottoms out on your original studs so you need to cut the end off your cars studs

why dont you just alter the offset of the steelies if youre that hellbent on fitting them? Should cost much more that $80 a wheel.. almost as much outlay as spacers and more legal.
