i dont know about the other guys but i like the look of stock rims, maybe 17 inch ef xr 5 spoke (the slanted ones). They will fit but the width is the problem cause the fatter rims rub on the suspension.

Have a read of http://fordmods.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=7546 to answer your first question!

Most 5 or 6 spoke wheel look ace on Falcons. The main problem is finding one with the right offset.

The e-series XR range never came with 17' rims, them rims you are speaking of are 16' although some wheel companies make them in 17' :)

I like the look of old school rims on EA's.....Especially chrome 12 slotters or 5 spoke Dragways. But thats just my opinion for what it's worth. But I must admit I have seen alot of EA's getting round with AU/BA rims and they look brilliant.
