afaik toyota is a around a +40 offset, e series is +6..
that means the e series wheels will stick out about 30-35mm..

au-fg wheels would be a better fit...

i got a spare tire with the car, i'm not sure what it's off but i don't think it's a toyota rim
i'm not sure if anyone could tell from just looking at it if it's falcon rim or not but i'll post it up anyway and i'm in no means a car expert or barely no anything about cars i'm into motorcycles and racing them..
so any help with this would be great even thought it's not a ford related thing..
