I got a EL and currently have 15 in rims on them. my dad has 4 spare 16in steel rims from a BA. I need new tyres.
I believe i cannot use these rims as they have a different stud patten.
Can someone clarifiy that for me. Or am i wrong?

Cheers Adam.

They have a different offset. So i think they will fit but they will be hitting some suspension components. You could get hub adapters but they are illegal and will void your insurance.

Thanks.
Cheers Adam.
