AU and BA wheels

Out of curiosity AU XR utes and BA utes <-- are the wheels interchangeable

Are the offsets the same from sedan to ute?, any combination that WON"T work?

Re: AU and BA wheels

As far as i know mate, any AU and BA wheel will fit on the other model, regardless of their being a sedan, ute, wagon or anything else.

Re: AU and BA wheels

the GT & GT-Ps have a different offset from front to rear but the Pursuit has the same offset front & rear

Re: AU and BA wheels

Rod is spot on, GT & GT-P wheels probably shouldn't be used on the front end of AU/BAs, also the RTV has different offset wheels for a slightly wider track so would fall in the same basket. So 99% of AU/BA wheels are interchangable.

Re: AU and BA wheels

The AU T3 (TS50 only) had a different offset rear as well. The fronts are the same as every other AU/BA, but the rears are most likely the same as the BA GT/P rears (ie about 20mm less neagtive offset, which makes the rim "stick out" further).

Re: AU and BA wheels

The Pursuit 250 had the same rims as the TS50 didn't they? Would they also have had the same differing rear offsets as the T3 TS?

Re: AU and BA wheels

Possibly not, as the BA Pursuit does not have the "rear" offset wheels.
