Hi there, Just wondering if someone knows a convertion to fit FG type wheels under a XG ute? Can you swap the stub axle and hub out of a AU into a XG? or is the hole front end wider? I am looking for a better solution other than wheel spacers!

Try getting the wheels in pre au off set, saves alot of hassles,

Au is 36 + e series is 0 offset

The change of front end would be TOO radical, I doubt it would be worthwhile. As frd906n says, would be better to get wheels specifically for E series.
