If I remember correctly you can go 1" wider and 2" bigger diameter from standard wheel size

Anything bigger will require a mod plate

Did you get an engineers report with the car for the wheels?

Or you could just change to stock rims for the rego to make it easier for you

Your Poll is for opinions. You want facts. Thread fail.

Just go to the nsw transport website and check out the modification guide. No point on getting peoples opinions cause they are not always right. Up here in qld we can put any size rims on as long as the overall tyre diameter is no more then +15mm or -26mm.

1. There is no 2" rule. Its all about rolling diameter and I'm 95% sure you can only do 15mm more than biggest factory fitted to model.
2. There isn't a 20" tyre in the profile you will need that will have the correct load rating on it.
3. Tyre cannot foul any body parts including inner guards when it's turned from lock to lock. Haven't seen a single VT with 20's that manages this.

Short answer, there isn't any way you can legal put 20's on a VT - VZ that doesn't involve getting it engineered.

ive got 20s on my VX SS
and ive got 245/30/R20s and they make the overall rolling diameter 11.8 mm bigger then normal (from memory, i think thats fine?)
the load rating of my car is minimum of 93V, my tyres are 97W.
and lock to lock i dont scrape. at all.

jesus tap dancing christ, go to the vicroads website and search it.

Fairly sure its 20% larger then the largest factory fitted wheel.

VT being 17x7.5 means you could probably at a rough estimate go to a 19x8 and get away with it. But do your maths properly.
