Stud pattern the same, but the offsets different, you can by aftermarket versions in e series offset though.

And if you've heard or do hear about hub adapters, do not use them.

They are dangerous and illegal.

i've run adapters for 2 years without problems, ive only heard about 1 problem with them in that time and it was because the guy used the wrong nuts on his wheels. (the thread u highlighted)
id much rather run genuine ford wheels than run the cheapo chinese rims that crack, like quite a few i have seen.
what the difference running a fixed bolted up adapter to suit au offset wheels and running a longer hubbed e series offset rim, theres no more stress on the wheel bearings than the other style. i dont see a problem

do u think people would use them on race cars if they were unsafe?
people run them on drift cars and drag cars, i think the stress these guys put them through is testimony they are fine

u can get your car approved to run adapters by an engineer too

in the end it's u to you to decide, and it comes doen to the fitter of the adapters and the user of the car.

Actually in the end its up to the Law, and with out and engineers approval they are illegal.

BA wheels will not fit a EF. they will sit way to far in on the back and not fit at all on the front. either buy copies in the right offset or use hub adaptors
