For E Series Falcons, as I understand it, you need
the following specs:

Stud pattern: 5 x 114.3
Offset: ET6

Most mag wheel brochures (on the net too) will specify if their wheels are
available with these specs, often called "pre AU".
Hub adapters are also available for AU and after wheels,
but these cost....

Hope this is of some help.

Just be aware that adaptors are illegal.

I thought hub adaptors were legal, whereas spacers are illegal

Sorry, don't know what the adaptors cost.....
A mag wheel place might be able to price them with the BA wheels.

Or, keep an eye out here for a second hand set..

I think you are better of getting adapters as it is rather pathetic how most Wheel & Tyre places with 6million types of wheels in their windows seem to have only have about 2 sets of Wheels that suit EL's in their entire show room when asked :evil: :evil:
