XR wheels

Simply No.

They'll sit in too far. You'll need to get adapters made. Hence the reason everyone's not using them. Up to EL will just bolt on.

Yep $800 for adapters unfotunatly I did'nt buy the wheels with the car because i could not afford the $$$ at that time.
It was the first pre AU with the herrod wheels the gaurds also had to be flared.

$800!!
I heard that all you need to do is have a set of 7.5mm spacers machined up and you are pretty well right, not sure if you might need longer wheel studs, that could justify the cost.
Yes i know that this is bad etc for a number of reasons, and that is why i haven't done it on my XR, but thought i would share what i have had been told.

on the topic, but off the point a little, wheels made for 'X' series cars dont fit 'E' series. 'X' series hubs are smaller...
