So you're getting the mags that are on the rear fixed?

I reckon you should stick with the ones you have on the rear, looks a lot more suited to the car IMO.

Oh, BTW you've gotta lose the rear mud flaps :p

Mudflaps off this weekend!
:D

Yep lukey1990!
The rear mags is the set I replaced mate.
With as bit of polish they'll be lookin sweet and the XR rims on now are on new rubber, so I spose I'll just have to get up to some 'scallywag behaviour' on em;)

Thanks for the input fella's!

Technically no, because the EF and EL XRs had different style wheels, that particular design is the EL variant.

Well, these wheels were the ones usually found on an EF XR6 (as shown), as far as I know these were the factory EF XR wheels, although most people tend to put the EL wheels on because they look sooo much better :)

And these being the factory EL XR wheels.

^^^
As above, both ef/el came with a 15" variant of there own and the 16" ftr were optional on ef or el, but less option on ef as they already had reasonable looking rims compared to the 15" offering for el's which were simply ugly as all s**t, hence quite uncommon to find thankfully.
