Hey, hello to all. First time post. I recently purchased a ex police vz ss 6.0L. It currently has standard 17 inch wheels ( including spare). How can I determine if it left the factory with 17’s or 18’s?

Being an ex-police car, it would have left the factory with 15 X 7 steel wheels

Slug powered VZ, Cross 8 VZ, VE Calais & ya mum.
VZ's did come from factory with 18's on some models.
As above, if yours was thrashed out as a cop car, it would have had steelies on it. Though I think they were actually a 16"x7" on later VZ's.
My VZ had factory steelies with those dimensions.

Have you checked the tyre placard on the drivers door to see what it says ?

I've got 2 sets that actually came off a cop car and they are 15X7.....The cars were a crash repair jobs and because 2 rims (1 rim per car) had slight scuffing, the police force insisted on 2 brand new sets....Other than the slight scuffing on the rims, they are perfectly round
