Hey there everyone

Just done a quick search but i couldn't find any relevant info. If there is already a thread on this please direct me to it ;)

when it comes to twenties on a VR and VS, are coilovers a must? I've heard a few different stories, yes, no, depending on...
is anyone able to confirm whether they are needed to fit 20's, or how else to get away with it?
also, what springs would be sufficiently low enough for the wheels without being too extreme? are there any springs that would be "too low" for that size rim, and what issues arise with this?

Also, any difference (apart from IRS) between fitting them to a VR and a VS?
any help greatly appreciated
Cheers, CC

should have no problems at all.
just make sure you know how wide tyres your going to run
225/30/20s will go on easy

245s/30/20s might need the guards rolled not sure.

i have 20s on my stato and on my senator....senator has ssl front springs and ssl rears and the stato has pedders sports rider fronts and sssl rears.....and the senator only scrubs at the rear when i turn hard but never at the front on anything yet. but the stato scrubs at the front and the rear but a little guard rolling fixed that. so long as you have 225/30 on the front you shouldnt have any drama. the widest ive had on the rear off both were 245s which were the only ones that scrubed on my stato. but i have camber from irs so the rears might be different...i'd just stick with 225s all around and youll be sweet.

I'm pretty sure they fit easy as as long as there VR-VZ offset, they chanaged the front struts from VR onwards and the VE has the VP IRS offset or so i've been told.

ring wheel worx they done to many 20's and can get my VP engineered with 20's so give them a buzz or check wheelworx.com.au out
