Right so the 5x114.3 means it has a 5 stud pattern.

yes 5 x 114.3 means 5stud and the spacing between syds.

just go to your tyre shop or where ever and ask for what fits... there isnt a lot that do fit due to the offset.

Offset is usually around 0, +/- 5mm is ok.

Isn't there a sticky about this???

The offset is about 30mm different, ie AU/BA wheels sit about 30mm too far in on pre AU falcons. Plenty of wheels shops sell mags with the correct offset for pre AU.

On Pre AU, +6 to 0 offset will fit fine. In fact, on track days I can still fit pre AU 17X8's with 30mm adaptors under the rear guards (Hub adaptors are CAMS legal, but not RTA legal).
