Hey all,
I have a set of AMG rims that are said to fit pre-au falcon. 17 X 8 inch fronts, 17 X 10 rears!
The studs line up, the offset fits fine (or will) but the hub has a small lip on it that stops the rim about 3 mm short of the disc face. what can i do about it?

yeah ran into another problem - the hubs stick out to far for the cover to go over the centers. no way they are going to fit without adapters or small spacers. Grrrr
