As we all probably know by now (if you don't, you've missed 20,000 threads asking the same question), wheels designed for an AU/BA will not fit earlier model Falcons. All of us probably also know that they can
be made to fit using spacers/adaptors, however these are illegal in most (if not, all) states of Australia. And we also probably know that there are copies of wheels from an AU and other models that are made to fit earlier model Falcons.
way, that isn't the point of my thread. What I was wanting to know, is: Why
did Ford introduce this different offset to the AU Falcon? Safety? Weight distribution? It's obviously an improvement, correct? But what is the actual reason behind it all?
Just out of curiosity, the wheels from an AU/BA, will they fit a Commodore without the use of adaptors/spacers etc?
Thanks for your help :D
