AUII XR8 Wheels on EFII XR6

Hi Guys, this may be the wrong section, sorry if it is.

I have seen a few EF's with AUII XR8 Wheels,



I was wondering how they can put the on their car, because i thought the offsets differ between the two models. I heard about spacers, but thought they were an illegal fix.

Thanks for your time.

Nath

The genuine Ford wheels require spacers although there are Aftermarket Copies of these that fit straight on... EFFalcon and fordxrgirl have these on thier cars.

I've got them (aftermarket copies) on my EB XR6, I bought mine from the tyre factory about 18 months ago. Cost me about $240 per wheel so you should be able to get them far cheaper than that by now. Or you could always source some BA XR6 copies, they would look good on an EF XR.
