    gday ladies n gentleman, this is my first post..

    so I just bought some walkinshaw wheels that cost me a lot of kanga..

    The rears are fine but the fronts are resting on what I think is the strut brace thingo.. do I need to get coil overs orrrr? I dunno what to do. I will throw whatever $$ I need at my project to fix this issue

    It's the spring seat. Tire size change should be enough, what size are on them at the moment?

    As above.....
    The profile of the tyre is obviously too tall and needs to be lower to clear the strut

    This is just an observation but really why would anyone put 20 inch wheels and tyres onto a VS. This will just be a Cop magnet and you'll spend more time getting defects off than driving on the road.

    Like I said, just an observation and not a criticism.
