Hi guys,

I have just recently picked up a set of skyline rims and I know they have the same stud pattern as the BA. I just wanted to know if they will be able to fit without mods.

The fronts are 18 by 8.5 and the rear are 18 by 9.5. I am happy to chuck on spacer plates but I am not too keen on doing heaps of mods to make them fit.

They will be going on a BA XT falcon

Thanks in advance.

Are you 100% or just guessing?

It depends on offset. What offset are they?

You want a 100% guarantee, when all you've told us is "skyline rims".

An educated guess follows.

Skylines, are the same bolt pattern (PCD) as Falcons, and generally the same offset as AU+ (+36). However, there's some ifs and buts. GT-R's run different offsets (+20), and those wider rims MAY be different offset (the rear - e.g. the front may be +36 and rears may be +20). Or they could be some weird size altogether.

I'll give you a 99% guarantee.
