Hey guys (and gals)
Just thought I would ask the question as it seems bizarre to me that this would be the case?
My brother has an EF and went on down to the local Bob Jane's looking at these wheel and tyre packages they have on special. He wanted a great looking set of 17's they had there for $1300 inc fitting, balancing and alignment. Old mate took one look at my brother's car though and said he would need a spacer kit and that he refused to put one on the car - hence no mags... Needless to say my bro was not a happy camper and asked me if I had heard of this...

Can anyone shed some light on this - or is there an option for my bro where he can have some decent wheels or is old mate from bob jane spewing fecal matter from his mouth??

Cheers

Dave-o

Just about all tyre shops now only sell au and up packages no more e-series because most companies dont make e-series wheels anymore so ive found out the hard way.

e-series wheels are hard to find but if you find a proper wheel shop they can find some great unique designs out there.

p.s. to answer your Q, fit fit "au>bf" wheels you will need spacers, some shops will fit some wont.

Adapters is what you need. Spacers are exactly that a big a*** shim, where as adapters bolt to ur hub, then to your wheel.

You can get E series wheels, Quakes, BA XR series II copies, BF GTP, Hollotype, Drift, etc. Just go to a decent tyre shop that will get off their a***, Tyrepower, ETC.
