just so we are CRYSTAL clear on this, here is a direct quote from ADR42/04:11
11. EXTERNAL OR INTERNAL PROTRUSIONS

11.1. No vehicle must be equipped with:

11.1.1. any object or fitting, not technically essential to such vehicle, which protrudes from any part of the vehicle so that it is likely to increase the risk of bodily injury to any person;

11.1.2. any object or fitting technically essential to such vehicle unless its design, construction and conditions and the manner in which it is affixed to the vehicle are such as to reduce to a minimum the risk of bodily injury to any person;

11.1.3. any object or fitting which, because it is pointed or has a sharp edge, is likely to increase the risk of bodily injury to any person; or

11.1.4. any bumper bar the end of which is not turned towards the body of the vehicle to a sufficient extent to avoid any risk of hooking or grazing.


you can find it yourself here: Vehicle Standard (Australian Design Rule 42/04 - General Safety Requirements) 2005

ok, so i think you may be a little bit confused here: SPINNERS are actually hubcaps which go on early fords and chevys. they look like this:


they are legal because they do not protrude far enough to be deemed a threat.


this thype of spinner:


is highly illegal, due to the hazard they cause by the two moving pieces of alloy. they pose a risk of cutting/slicing and therefore are deemed un road worthy.

your officer needs to go back to cadets for a refresher.
I think he's referring to the first type of spinner.

Making all nudge bars, bull bars etc illegal. But people still put them on their cars/4WDs etc.

On that subject, won't get defected:
