Can you put rims on my XF??

an easy one - i'd like someone to put these BA GT rims & AU1 XR rims onto my XF so i can have a look please. i'd also like to see a set of the BA XR8 18's on it but can't find a pic anywhere on the net, can some one help me out with that one too??

PS: would some tinted windows be out of the question too??

cheers!

Re: Can you put rims on my XF??

yea you can put them on, just need hub adaptors like any other AU/BA rim. i'm not sure whether ford will sell them without a VIN # from a GT but i know there isn't any copies made yet.....
