Would these fit on a Ford Falcon AU Forte 1999?

No, they are the wrong offset you need AU+ wheels, which i think the offset is 36 where as the wheels on ebay are 6

What wheels have you got on the car right now? They would probably look better than those wheels you found on ebay.

Save up and get a decent set of 17's or bigger, 16's are small on an AU. Mag wheels are getting cheaper these days and tyre prices are pretty reasonable too

Thanks for the tip.

The AU currently has steel rims

I'd stick with the steelies over those ba rims, remind me of the el saphire rims, admittedly I may be bias having ditched alloys for steellies. :lol:

I got a set of 18 inchers as can be seen in this shot:

For 500 bucks with two brand new tyres... 235/40/R18's.

This weekend I bought a set of Nankangs brandnew for 190 fitted and balanced each... could have gotten cheaper tyres too.. they had that size tyre in a brand I've not heard of for 115 a piece.

anyway.. keep looking, your bound to find something better than those.

In fact it might be worth going to see billypistol in person, he works in walliston wreckers on saturday mornings (his son owns it.)

He has looked after me several times and they wreck a huge number of AU/BA/BF Xr's and stuff... so bound to have something more interesting come along.

regards

haha, jeez sorry but seem like you've got some bad tastes, there's also a set off a terry he has for 400, 17" 5 poke, probably has the wrong tyres, but maybe you could even talk him into doing a change over deal if he has another set of tyres.

and theres also the au s2 xr6 wheels, which aren't to bad.
otherwise, I'm sure theres plenty out their, personally I'm a fan of the 17" au FTR's think s2 or 3 version
