ok so i have just got myself a set contra mags for my EA, anyways the problem is that they fit perfectly over the studs but are too wide and are rubbing on the inside of the suspension and stuff. I've read few posts on here and i'm assuming that these wheels are for an AU or BA, which basically means i'm screwed cos spacers are illegal yes???

does anyone know of any mods i can do to make these fit or should i just cut my loses and sell them to get proper EA mags?!! :cry:

The wheels are front: 225/45Z R17
Rear: 235/45 R17

just out of curiosity has anyone broken the studs on their adaptors before.
Because i have twice. The bolts are s**t.

Anyone else have problems. Also did people cut their orginal studs down to suit or what?

does anyone know any brand names of these adaptors, i've tried a few place now and every tyre shop tells me the same thing either they dont exsist or they are illegal :roll:

i might just have to do some serious research and post some url's of any finding i come across.

cheers for the replys though!!!!! :D
