I also believe that when it states

'Wheels up to 26mm wider than the largest optional wheel recommended by the vehicle manufacturer for the vehicle can be fitted'

it means your actual car, and not for instance another similar model like the EBGT.

So if you own a boxcar, the largest optional wheel for most was a 15 x 7.

That would mean you can use any diametre rim provided the tyre fitted doesn't exceed 15mm more or less than the factory fitted tyre wheel combo, typically, 205/65/15.

But this rule would restrict the rim width choice to 8 inches. Sigh, more than 8" on the back would be nice though. Oh well.

Apparently they dont make 18" advanti volts in eseries offset anymore, so whatever stock is floating around in stores is it.

for ideas on wheels to suit your EF....

When you look on wheelmags, make sure they say "TO FIT PRE-AU FORD FALCONS AND FAIRLANE" under the heading.

Right now he's only got a handful of Pre AUs, he's normally got at least another 4 or 5 types.

I would have picked the silver inner lipped ones, but eh its all good.
That place can also do tyre packages, bout 1500 or so.
If not, Nexen's are a budget priced performer, cheaper and generally better in all aspects than the more common Nankangs too.
