What sizes did specifically EF/EL rims come in? I like the look of a few of them and hoping some were in at least 17"?

you can get chrome 17" FTR's, they look fair good, but are not genuine

With EF/EL XR's, the largest of the genuine wheels would be 16" as Ashcook suggested, which are the FTR's (16x7). Pretty decent looking wheels too.

There's 3 types of 17" OEM Ford wheels to suit pre AU Falcons. EB GT (17X8.5), EL GT (17X8.5) and NL Concord (17X7.5, manufactured in Italy by Speedline... $$$).

are you sure i thought the concorde's both sets were 16" although, there was 17" speed lines on the nl fbt, I think this is what your thinking of.

Yeah, you're right. It's the NL FBT that had the 17's. My bad.

Damn, those ftr's look pretty good but 16 is a bit too small me thinks. Likelyhood of getting a set of those GT rims in NZ = 0
