My plan is to try and find some 17 or 18 inch alloy wheels for my EF station wagon. Nil offset wheels for E series above 16" are hard to find around this neck of the woods - buying new is a bit too expensive for me. I was wondering if there are like wheels of the size I'm after can be used from other car makes that would fit the E Falcons - anybody know?
Maybe from Jap vans for SUV's or something like that.

Regards
Bruce.

Toyota and others that run the 114.3 PCD use a different offset, along the lines of +36 like the AU onwards offset.

Hub adaptors. Not the greatest solution, but without much cash, you have few options
