Hey guys any help with this would be good there in about 15mm less gap between guard and tyre on the left wheel compared to the right it's like it's shifted over car drives fine but new wheels and its scrubbing also dose anyone have a photo of factory footwell lighting for a vy/vz I'm interested to no where the mount it and what it looks like TIA
Before you drive it anywhere and risk mechanical failure, I suggest that you either get your Auto Club NRMA, RACV, RACQ etc to come and inspect it, or have it towed to a competent mechanic.
Are the new wheels & tyres the same size. Or to wide
Are they new rims? If you bought something with a staggered offset, you maybe have put the rear wheel on the front, or vice versa.
Got this little granny car now.
My vz is a bit out too. Maybe 10mm. I'm going to take it to pedders some time soon and ask them what the deal is. Probably just needs to be re aligned or something. I think there is a little bit of adjustment in the rear end.

They are 20 inch rims I tried swapping the rear wheels around I had them fitted at Goodyear with a wheel alinement done with there laser computer the wheels should fit with little clearance on both side not touching one side but can fit hand in on the other has me stumped I'm not driving it at the moment due to loss of licence so will be having a good look on my day off
The tyres are all the same and I might try up a front wheel on the back would the rim it's self be wider ? For the back
Adamcawood , did you ever find out what the problem was? I too just put shocks, springs, brakes, wheels and tyres but the left rear scrubs. It is at least 12mm further out then the right. Had wheel alignment done same day. Wheels cant go on untilsorted. Any ideas.??
Had it looked at a few times with no luck I measured and used levels and lasers tried swapping springs and shock around tightened and lessened things changed disks around even took to a panel beater to check if something had shifted after all that nothing was found and no one could nut it out so I had to change wheels
id say the rear subframe has shifted slightly. id measure from the centre of the diff to the wheel arch to make sure they are the same measurement
