Hey guys need to know weather a BF xr8 ia capable of fitting a 16" wheel as a tempoary spare, as my wife has hit a pothole in the XR8 damaging 2 wheels.

Will it fit or brakes too big?

Did the teritory have 17" or 16" steelies and will they fit?

Got the car back today, Tryed the 16" Steel rim only to find it does not fit!!!!
So next question do I have premium brakes? and should I look for a territory steel rim to replace my spare.

on the fortunate side only 1 rim was damaged but not too bad just a little buckle in it so tyre insurance paid for 2 new tyres and repair for the damaged rim which will be sent away for repair.

all BF Turbos and 8's ran larger brakes the same as whats fitted to a territory - so i'd be trying to find a territory 17" steel wheel for a spare.

still dosent clear the rear callipers, have tryed allready.

Picked up a 17" territory steel rim fits ok. problem solved.

territory offset is around 1mm different to falcon so its ok to use, and aparently slight difference to offset between BF and BA from what I was informed toady
