after some interceptors for the 32, we both have same stud pattern n PCD.

just after some for the rear, i know ford ceptors wont clear my brakes on the front, but i just wanted to know the difference between pre au rims n post au..

also anyone in melb got a pair for sale?

i like these ones with the bigger holes (holden style)

cheers

pre-au and early AU stockies are 15"

later AU and onwards stockies are 16" i believe but like you said are uglier.

Not sure if the factory ea/eb stockies are the same as the pic in the thread you posted as ive seen older stockies and they look horrible, something you would only fit to a clapped out trailer

alot of wheel shops know their stuff.
