There was never an EA XR8, but two sets of mags for 350, especially one set being EB GT's is an absolute steal! Got any pics? ANd what sort of condition are they in?

damn, EB GT mags are so hard to find, let alone to find for less than 2grand, and EA XR8 mags? not possible.

The wheel nuts will most likely bottom out, EF+EL have longer studs, you will need to get the nuts modified in some way (i dont think the EF/EL nuts hold the earlier mags properly) we had this problem with trying EA fairmont ghia mags on an EF.

The guy I bought the mags of had his GT there and was selling heaps of stuff of it, one of the GT mags are badly warped (gutter) the other mags are ROH Ford mags- the guyI bought them of said they were of an EA/EB XR8.

They maybe knock offs but I just grabbed them as quick as I could- he was packing up and had $500 on the GT rims, and I offered him $350. The other mags he traded me for a in car VCD player I had for sale out there.

These are EB XR8 wheels.

They are like the EB2 s-pac ones, but they have a machined finish, Not the coated one like from the 6cly falcons.

They where of my EB1 S-XR8

They are for sale if anyone wants them! they have yoko tyres on them 215/60/15 with 40-50% tread left .

I should clean them up before the next pic ;)
