Hope this is the right forum for this question? :oops:
I'm looking for wheels and tyres to fit my EF wag.
Can I swap EA and EF wheels around?
What other year models are interchageable with each other?

I have a feeling that if you're using 14's they may not clear on the EF brakes. I've had 14's on my EL twice (EA's once, and XF's once) and both times the wheels were scraping on the brake calipers.

Because most wheels nowdays have been brought out with that offset, so Fraud changed it accordingly.

Also i think XB wheels are interchangable as well

I have seen the early E series "snowflakes" and the
"turbo blade" (both 15") style mags on EF cars before.

I read here somewhere that there may be an issue with
the length of the studs though. Some say they need to be
trimmed, some say they go on fine.
Not sure what the correct way to go is, but try the "search"
function here on Fordmods.
