I've scored a set of five 5 spoke alloy wheels from an ED that look like the EB XR6 polished wheels but when I put them on my car, the wheel nuts stick out a few CM and look stupid.

Can you get different wheel nuts of a different model falcon that fit? The ED nuts from these alloys dont fit either, the studs on the EL are too long for the ED nuts.

ef and ed used different length and style of nuts and as you have found dont interchange. you could change your wheel studs back to the short ones. or grind them down a bit (although i wouldnt recommend this)
