G'day everyone,

some more newb questions from me.

well looks like ill finally be getting a set of 17" ELGT replicas for my falcon, but i just have a couple of questions.

it currently has standard hubs on it, will any modifications need to be done to fit the 17"s?

and how much will it throw the speedo out? how/where can i get it recalibrated for the new tyres/rims?

and lastly im currently running bridgestone G-Grips (they changed the name slightly for them nwo but thats what they where), any suggestions on what rubber to run on the new rims?

thanks everyone for your patience

Since your putting them on your EL, your hubs'll be fine!
And so long aas you get the right size ow profile tyre your speedo should be fine too.

brand new (last set they had), no rubber though - was putting the frieght upto much to make it worth while.

they are pretty good prices, but they don't look at good as some others i've seen, im not sure bu the quality seems to be lacking somehow. maybe its the crappy centrecaps.
