PCD and OFFSET of e-series falcons wheels????

Im looking to buy some rims fairly soon, a mate can get me some second hand rims for cheap off some importers and his work (Japanese wreckers), but I need to know the PCD and OFFSET of the e-series falcons. I wanted a set of BBS rims to get powder coated white but I donít know if they will fit, and he wont bring them into the country until I know if there going to fit, they were 17ís, with a PCD of 114.3mm I think and OFFSET of +45.

Does any one know the PCD and OFFSET of e-series falcons wheels????

Thanks
Ehab

Re: PCD and OFFSET of e-series falcons wheels????

the PCD is 14.3, but the actual offset seems to be a closely guarded secret :S get them anyway and sell them to a dude with a Au or skyline if they dont fit...

Re: PCD and OFFSET of e-series falcons wheels????

What about the hole (spigot?) in the middle of the rim, where the wheel sits on the hub, isn't it important that the rim fits that as well??

I've never seen BBS rims on any model Falcon ever! You tend to see them on E36 BMWs and some Commodores. If you can get them cheap, buy them even if they don't fit the Falcon because you can sell them and make a small profit

ash EB Fairmont Ghias had em factory. i think the ED Ghia rims were an evolution of the same rim

someone told me falcons have an offset of 0. so i dunno.

and 114.something sounds right

Re: PCD and OFFSET of e-series falcons wheels????

i thought AU's were a 0 offset, and E-Series were a positive offset.
hence why AU wheels hit suspension parts on E-Series Falcon's

unless AU's are negative offset and E-Series are 0
