Hey, I'm looking at buying some rims for my EA and I have a tight budget so I wanna go second hand. What I was wondering is, do the E-series have the same stud pattern as the X series and also, wat non Ford cars share the same stud pattern as the E-series. Any Help much appreciated, thanks

buddy it's not the stud pattern that's the problem, actually the stud pattern is very very common! It's the offset of the Pre-AU Falcons, you will struggle to find wheels with the same offset.

yeah i already have the snowies but i feel with all that space i need to fill it up more and the 15" doesn't cut it. Also when it comes to the offset is there any way to combat it like those riser plates I'ver heard of?

Hub adapaters or spacers, the hub adapters are meant to be a safer option however you will have to check with vicroads to see if they are legal or not.

They aren't, unless you get an engineer to sign off on their fitment.

Thanks heaps for your responses. I have one last question, if the hub adapters aren't legal without an engineers cert. are the spacers legal even though they aren't as safe?

Nope.
Neither are legal without engineering and consequent approval from your states traffic authority.
AFAIK this is true for all states.

225's on 15" fill em up pretty good any wider and you get into tyre rubbing issues Although I had no probs with 235's on 17".
You have to weigh up performance over look and cost.
I wouldn't waste too much money on an earlier model and there are some great performance tyres for cheap in the 225mm 15" size. I think that the current tyres I have at $115 each for bridgestone er30's are 90% as good as the 235 17" I had on the car I wrote off. 19" wheels are rice

Not true for all states. Definately not in Tassie!

Now say I wanted to go to the trouble of getting the spacers which aren't technically legal, where could i get them from, how big do they need to be (6mm, 8mm etc.) and for about how much?

Go down to your local retard school and ask them, couse there about the only people dumb enough to bother!
I think either Nice or Speco make universal ones, aside from that try local tyre and wheel shops, or get a local engineer shop to make them up for you.
