They look like AU2 / 3 XR wheels and if they are genuine they will fit your BA. AU wheels and BA wheels will fit E series using spacers but we know thats a no no in the eyes of the law.
Find out from him what offset they are. Or as said if they are E series copies they will not fit properly and you should leave them.

if your ute is low then i wouldnt even think about it. The tyres with smash the gaurds. If those are the wheels you want you will have no issues getting them in the right offset for your car as they are au xr wheels.

What these guys said.
They could be copies in E series offset. If they are they are still worth the money and then resell for a small profit.
Get a picture of the rear and post it up. We should be able to tell what they are by looking at it.

Yep,
If they are genuine they will have a Tickford wing logo in the cast and they will then fit your BA, and they are AU XR wheels that share the same offset.

FYI, these are E series 8" wheels on the front of an AU:

Interestingly, on my FG ute the stocko offset wheels in the rear seem to sit a fair way in...
