Re: AU TS50 Wheels

You can get adaptor plates to make em fit, but dont get caught with them cause as far as i understand it they are illegal in all states

Re: AU TS50 Wheels

Are they 17's or 18's?

As has been said, you will need adaptor plates (say hello to a Yellow Sticker if these get found, and any carsmart cop will find them - around here if you have AU copies on an E series you can expect to be pulled over), and i THINK they would require you to roll your guards so you can actually turn them? Not sure on that one.

If it were me I wouldn't put em on, I'd maybe buy them then sell them again for a higher price and buy some nice wheels that have the correct offset. But that's just the devious inner child in me coming out .

Re: AU TS50 Wheels

hmmm... All I have to say is don't buy the same wheels as me. They're becoming too common allready. And it really sux to see a bogan, driving a shagged rust bucket XF with EL GT replicas. my 5 cent.

Re: AU TS50 Wheels

You can legally use spacers up to 5mm in width and they are secured to the disc.

Re: AU TS50 Wheels

In Vic maybe, NSW spacers are not on, well according to local HWP they're not anyway. I wouldn't risk it personally.

yes but the spacers required for AU wheel fitment are about 2 inches!, which is a shame as they look so safe
