They would need hub adapters to fit an XF, making them kind of expensive for what they are, but if they are what you want, maybe thats no prob. I am told they are illegal though.

As has already been said, they're AU, and won't fit any pre-AU Falcon without using adapters, so not worth it. There are better wheels you could get if you're after a set of wheels...

WOW those wheels look s**t. Each to their own i guess.

What was going through fords mind when they put wheels on the xr6's. EF had FTR's, and they got it right. Then EL's had those awful 6 spoke things then these on early AU's. I dont get it.

Actually the EF XR6 had some other 5 spokers (well really 5 groups of 2 spokes) as standard. The FTRs were an option on both EF and EL.

$250 for spacers soon makes the wheels not free. Should peel the good rubber off them then go to a wrecker and ask to swap for an E series offset rim.
