Ride: 96 XH/97 EL

Location: South Coast
NSW, Australia

Unfortunately std Falcon steel rims (well E series) do warp over time, ask any tyre place for their opinion and experience on this one. EF/EL's typically coming up to 10 yrs age, so chances are this could be likely. Replacement steelies are quite pricey for what they are, as Ford don't stock them any longer, and decent rims are getting scarcer - expect to pay $35 - $40 per rim from a wrecker.
A budgetwise alternative may be to look for a set of EF Fairmont alloys - they're reasonably easy to find and for about $10-$15 more per rim than steelies, they look good (IMO), and won't warp.
