    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 they new rims? If you bought something with a staggered offset, you maybe have put the rear wheel on the front, or vice versa.

    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
