Probably not if they are running hub adaptors.

Technically it should depend more on what tyres you are running that what size the rims are. In Victoria it is basically, no more than 15mm larger diameter than largest tyre, no less than 15mm smaller diameter than smallest tyre, and no more than 25mm wider than widest tyre. Ef's came with 205/65-15 and 225/50-16. So technically can run up to 250 wide, so 245's.

Enter your tyres in here and see what they come out at.

Some mechanics will just fail a car with big rims, with no explanation/justification. Or come up with some story about a 2" rule (which you would still pass 16" to 18")

I run 245/35-19's on my EL, which are technically legal.

they shouldent pass hub adaptors and the so called 2' rule is no more but they still pass cars with bigger rims because most mechanics dont care
