They are AU wheels. Changed my mind now, I think they are ELII wheels for a Futura or Fairmont.

Having no dish, and looking at the FWD offset in the pic, aren't they definetly AU wheels?!

Why would an XH have an offset like that? Aren't they the ute of the EF / EL era?

my wheels have no dish... you cant tell the offset of a wheel like these just by looking at the front of them.

EL Futuras had steelies with hubcaps. AU was the first Futura to get alloys standard. Maybe they were optional on EL Futuras though, but I know they were standard on the XH S-pack. They're definately e-series offset though.

Thats because they probably have minimal dish, dish doesn't determine offset as has been said, offsets depends, where the hub is in relation to the center of the rim, now if the point where the hub hits the rim is heavily recessed from the face off the rim then it can have minimal offset and next to no dish.
