Re: 17 inch EL mags on AU?

what do u mean they were made for E-series? as in they are not originals??? if they have the E-Series offset they wont fit under an AU properly without spacers, so yeh id say either get some spacers (which are illeagal apparently) or sell them and get some new ones!

Re: 17 inch EL mags on AU?

you cant use spacers on Eseires rims on AU's......bwhwhhahahah, That will put the rim out even further. You need to ditch the wheels, or, be dodgy and cut the diffrence in the offset out of the backspace of the rim....(ULTRA MEGA DODGY). Just sell the rims and buy newies.

Re: 17 inch EL mags on AU?

The E series offset is 0-1, AU is 35-38, thats how far the rims will stick out on teh AU if you put them on.
And its also illegal.
