This has been discussed before and if I remember correctly they will not fit.

I also moved this thread to the right area.

XR wheels

Simply No.

They'll sit in too far. You'll need to get adapters made. Hence the reason everyone's not using them. Up to EL will just bolt on.

Yep $800 for adapters unfotunatly I did'nt buy the wheels with the car because i could not afford the $$$ at that time.
It was the first pre AU with the herrod wheels the gaurds also had to be flared.

$800!!
I heard that all you need to do is have a set of 7.5mm spacers machined up and you are pretty well right, not sure if you might need longer wheel studs, that could justify the cost.
Yes i know that this is bad etc for a number of reasons, and that is why i haven't done it on my XR, but thought i would share what i have had been told.

My car is powered by FORD 5.8
To avoid breathing difficulties during hard acceleration, it is recommended that female passengers should remove all tight fitting undergarments before entering the vehicle!
