I've just bought genuine BA XR8 18x8 wheels for my EB XR6 just wanting to know what size spacers i have to use on the hubs to mount the wheels

Its about 40mm - You would be crazy to use spacers.

Quite a few mag wheel shops around sell hub adaptors to suit. They are strong enough, but not legal or insurance friendly.

Hey boys, just on the spacer story. Is there any other way to fit BA wheels to an E series car without having to put on hub adapters?
I know the offsets are different but there would have to be some other way...wouldn't there?

Short of fitting AU/BA suspension in the front and back (which is far from bolt in) adaptors are the only way to make them fit.
