You want to check with your Rego authorities before you put that big a wheel on an E series falcon.

I have a set of 16's if your interested?

Re: Mags For My EF =[

I wouldnt be putting 18 or 19 on, stick to 17 max.

tyres are cheaper, the ride is better, you dont damage them so easily on rough roads...the list of advantages is long!

oh and as kerry said, check the regs, and also check with insurance co. as 17s are hard enough to insure on some cars...

Re: Mags For My EF =[

i'd go 18's, but be sure to check if they're fine with insurance, 19's imo make the car look small, and 17's are too common, 18's are perfect and prices are comin' down.
If you do get 18's, just make sure you're careful with them! :)

Re: Mags For My EF =[

In my opinion, anything bigger than a 17" rim on an E series looks to big, and anything smaller than a 17" on an AU onwards looks to small.

Re: Mags For My EF =[

I've got 15's but youd be surprised how many people think they're 16's. They're ok, but just like every other E series I want EL XRs dammit!

18s on an EF will cause you some issues with guards, i agree with TIKFD6 - i think they'd look too big.

They are a set of EB/D Optional 16'" rims, pretty rare and hard to come by.
Heres a pic.
