I love my chrome and bling bling!! :D Interested in getting some 20 inch chromies for the rear 20 X 8.5. Will they be okay? I know the guards will definately need rolling, but could there be any other fowling issues like rubbing or scraping on anything else? **Awaits response and flaming***

its not worth the hassle to put 20inch on, you will most likely need to roll guards but then i think the better option for 20's would be flared.

i had so much trouble even with 17's on my ef rolled both front and back still trouble in the end someone finally decided to give me a $600 dollar job for free lifted a little so there was no scrubbing or digging into tyre anymore problem was gas tank makes it worst plus some people need to learn how to lower cars

20's fit on the front
the rim needs to be about 6 or 7 inch wide tho to clear upper ball joint , and there is no probs on the back if you get 8.5' wide . adaptors maybe required to suit ......

JET XR deffinately has 20" rims and doesn't have airbags.
all airbag places say you can't get airbags for the front of falcon's too.
or its custom made.

there is a way of fitting them, just not sure what it involves :P

cant put airbags on falcons, no clearence between the control arm. if you had the burning desire to do it you would need custom arms and that costs big bucks

Just out of interest, why do you always say "cheers Kyle" at the end of your posts? :)

Also, I believe the rear tyres on Jet XR aren't very wide due to clearance issues??? 225's or sumfin'???
