Ride: 1994 ED

Location: Canberra
ACT, Australia

Im looking to buy some BBoss Eleanors, but am not too sure whether or not 20s will fit on my ED.

I can settle for 19s, but should I consider anything in ride/performance difference between the two sizes? (Plus, I am aware that i'll need spacers, I had them for previous BA XR wheels on my ED)

Help or suggestions ?
Please and thanks :D

20's should fit... provided they are either 225s all round or 225s at front 245 at rear max... with the inner guards lipped...

Yes they will physically fit, but it will look like a bloody hot wheels car.

Do yourself a favour and look at 18's max on the boxcar. Bigger wheels work better on the ef/el but on the boxcar, go too big and you will have an unbalanced look.

18s are tiiiiiny!
BBoss eleanors are played out, so common.
19s are the go, lot of good styles, tyres are cheap as these days and no dramas with fitment.

imo 19's r a much better choice... you can ave a wider tyre(welll al the 20'''s i seen have 225 ) and 20's have f**k alll tread. and i hate when the tyre tapers back from the edge of the rim makes it look like the tyre is too skinny for the rim.. they need to sit flush with the rim, so it gives it a bit of curb protection.. :)
