Will BA XR8 Mags go on AUIII Futura ?

Hello 2 u all ...

2 all of those people that can possibly help... Im looking 2 put sum BA XR8 rims on my AUIII Futura, but am getting mixed responses as 2 whether or not they wil fit aiight, and whether I will still be insured ... Just wondering if ne1 else has similar kinda circumstances ...

Also ... ne1 ripped out their head unit inplace of an indash screen / DVD, etc? Im VERY keen 2 do so in the near future and would like 2 hear thoughts / experiences about that also ...

Thankx heaps ...

Ohh ... and all those Tickford & FPV members out there ... Dont worry, just cos I want BA XR rims, doesnt mean I think I should be allowed in2 ur club !!

thats it. AU-BA are the same and X?-EL are the same. just dont go trying to put E series rims on an AU or BA and vice versa.

You can, but just on the back and if it's low might rub on the guard as the EA rims stick out around 30mm further out than the AU wheels.
