I've bought a set of BA 18'' too put on my EB

Does anyone know how wide a spacer I need for these to fit?

So I can pre order and have them ready for fitment next week!

Just got the wheels sandblasted as the laminate was peeling and now gotta organise my mate to paint them for me! I'm gonna get them black coz it will look nuts against the cobalt blue of my car.

Cheers

Just a thought if i fitted BA brakes could I then get away without using spacers? What is involved in this sort of changeover?

you will need 30 or 35mm hub adapters.
most wheel shopw can get these for you. your probably looking at about $75 each?

as for ba brakes, i think they'd be more trouble than what they are worth to fit to e-series.

unless someone has done it before and has a doco on it

yes 30-35 is right.

your cars stock wheels are 0-6mm+ offset, au-bf are 36mm + offset. i'd go 35s though.
