Question 17x8" AU2 Wheels on an EL?

Hey guys,

I own an XH falcon longreach ute, basically an EL. I'm currently looking for a set of wheels for it and noticed a few EL's are cruising round with the AU2 17x8" wheels, AND I WANT THEM!!! LOL!!!

I know the offsets aren't correct and i would appreciate if anyone out there knew where i could get a set of the copies of these wheels that suit the EL wheel offset. Also a rough cost on them...?

Thanx... Jade.

First of all, welcome to the forums!

There's a couple of threads going on at the moment about this.

Copies of the AU2 XR 17's are available in the offset to fit E series, you can generally pick them up new with second hand tyres for about $1000

Where are you located? In Melbourne "The Tyre Factory" is currently doing them for $890, new rims with second hand tyres. That doesn't include centre caps or nuts though.
