wheel problem?

does anyone no the offset a wheel has to be to fit an EL? trying to find rims and hardly anythin fits that looks any good. do u no of any sweet wheels that fit el's? would be a big help. i'm thinkin bout get wheel adapters (or wheel spacers) so i can get any rim i want but i think they might be illegal in qld?

Re: wheel problem?

Hi mate, the Offset is 0-1mm.
What sort of rims are you after?
After owning a Pre Au falcon for a while, you get used to hearing "no they wont fit your car".
Ive got a set of 17's for sale if you interested.

Re: wheel problem?

Any rim with a offset of 0 to +10 and 114.3 x 5 stud pattern will fit E and X series cars. Yes it's hard to get decent modern aftermarket rims for these cars because the offset was unique only to our Aussie Falcons (up untill AU). The range is growing though, shop around and always ask for a fitment check (with tyre) before you hand over the dosh. Also, stay away from the spacers..not insurance, RTA or Police friendly, even if they're hub adapters which are legal in some places.

Re: wheel problem?

Quakes and furies are nice, but they are like Assholes, everyone has them.
Bob Jane has a new 5 spoke that looks similar to an FR17 simmons, in chrome they look sexy.
