Hey guys

I was thinking today while cleaning up my garage and i picked up a spare front rotor when
i thought "hang on how do the BA mags fit on if the cap sit over the rotor like 3 cm"

Image
SEE THE CAP STICKING OUT ON THAT ROTOR(guessing the bearing are in there) but thats that im taking about

Would this get in the way???
and is the stud pattern the same BA 2003 XR6 alloy mags to Ford Falcon XF Disc allround

Thx for your time guys

AU-BA-BF have a diff offset to X & E series falcons, so no they won't fit. aftermarket copies are avail for cheap though.

rear will fit, front won't.
how do i know this?? well lets say that 2x au2 pursuit rims were used for skiddies a couple of years back.
i actually haven't tried the fronts but a mate told me they hit the caliper.

I used to drive around with Au pursuit rims on my XF all the time. After they were too worn for the taxi I'd just finish them off. The offset was just right for burnouts cause when they popped the tyre was fully contained within the wheel arch.

they don't fit ef/el front cause of the different caliper i think.
i'll try it if i get a chance this weekend, my car is totally stripped.
but yeah they sit in on x/e series, and don't smash the guard when they pop.

there isent any difference from xr8 to xr6 alloy mags right?
or i just get some xr8 one to fit instead if they don't fit xr6 ones

Hi, love to fit some other mags to my Futura 1995 (EF) ... Can I just put a different brake on (brembo) or something? I have heard of this front wheel drive offset problem, and am looking to get around it. More powerful front brakes could be an advantage too...

dont bother with brembos, ud be shocked with the price of the pads. get some APracing brakes but your looking at 4k just for the front ones.... bit too much in my opinion

u can get those bolt on hub adaptors but make sure they are legal in your state. this will allow you to fit the newer wheels in the different offset

you can put a price on being able to stop you and your family?
as said tho, you can use hub adaptors (NOT SPACERS) to get the required offset

as ive said many times on here in the past, adapters and spacers are very unsafe but he wanted to know if it was possible and this is the only safish way that it is possible...... either that or you could but a car like mine that has many wheels options available

there's nothing wrong with adaptors, may track cars use them some porches came out with them from factory, spacers however are very dangerous

Care to explain the difference between a spacer and an adapter? Got any pics for a comparo? Even a s**t side on drawing in paintbrush will do.
