Ride: AU XR8 220 Manual

Hi guys, i have a set of wheel spacers but i cant work out what they suit. they came with a set of HP 20inch Wheels that we put on an EL falcon.

I am hoping these are the right spacers to put AU XR8 wheels on my EB.

The spacers appeat to have the same stud pattern as the E series fors (equal spacing between holes and studs)

the spacers are also 35mm thick, i have also seen 25mm ones that apparently do the same job. which do i need for the AU XR8 wheels

any ideas?

Cheers

35mm will push the wheel too far out, you'll be hitting the guard front and rear.
I have 30mm which is almost too far. 25mm would be much better I'd say, but 30mm will suffice.

How low is your car though?
Mines just tucking rubber on the rear and level at the front.
