Hi Guys,
I've bought my old mans '91 30th anniversary EA II Fairmont off him which still has it's stock 14" 6JJ wheels & 215/65 tyres on.
Does anyone know if I can just put 16" EL XR6/XR8 wheels with 225/50 tyres straight on without any troubles ?

Thanks
Ant

Thanks EFNA,

Wasn't sure if the width required any suspension changes as I read these wheels were only fitted with sports suspension options.(Not sure why).

suspension option was standard fitment on all xr', and only xr's got those as an option.
But just for proof the width isn't an issue in anyway, s pacs etc, had 7" rims with standard suspension.
