AU wheels fit BA; From memory, 200sx and some Magna as well.

AU wheels don't fit GT/GTP They will not go over the Premium Brake package.
Not to be picky, but either will BA wheels - unless they are 18s. So a set of AU 18s would fit the GT/GTP, would they not?

I have tried a set of AU offset rims on my car and they would not fit.
They were admittedly not Ford ones they were ANZ Scars in Au offset 18x8
They went over the caliper but contacted the corner of the caliper on the backside of the rim (if you can follow my explination) I had to use 6mm spacers.

GT/GT-P and Pursuit rears have a different offset to the fronts. The fronts of a GT would be fine with AU rims

I give up!! I have tried they do not fit. They will fit the back O.K but not the front!!!!
You must have brembo's then. The performance brake calipers are no problems. You will always have to use spacers on the back to get the correct offset with either set of brakes, but the fronts will only fit a few 18" with heaps of inner clearance on the rim, this is not an offset problem and spacers will not fix this, it will just make things worse with wheel clearance on the guards, try putting the original rears on the front and you will see what I mean. Simmons 18" and most 19" and 20" rims will be Ok thought. I saw an Orange GT at Penrith Ford with 20" rims from Jaxx tyres, they looked awesome

Hey umm just on to another question how wide do you think we could go.I am thinking about getting my wheels widend at the rear but just looking underneath the car it looks like there is just maybe 1 -2 inches to play with.
Oh Its a ute so im not sure if the sedans have more space under there.
