If you want to fit VE wheels on to a VT to VZ the hub in the VE rim needs to be machined out. So in the reverse case as yours VZ wheels on to a VE the centre hole for the hub is larger than it should be. I would think if legal you probably should fit a hub ring to fill the space and centre the wheel on to the hub. Also the VE wheel stud sizes are larger (I think 14mm as opposed to 12mm for VT to VZ) so if the VZ wheels you have are factory I'd say you may even find the studs on your VE are too big for the VZ rim. If those rims aren't factory who knows if the stud hole are correct. I think you would need to trial fit and see if it bolts up OK. Personally if you"re not 100% sure I'd suggest you get the wheels changed at a tyre place and for them to advise you on the pros and cons. Also from having had a VX and a VE, the VE tyre sizes and load ratings are different to the VE so you may even find the tyres aren't suited to the VE. Again tyre shop recommendation would be best.

What rim & tyre combo do you have now ?

I wouldn't entertain the proposed swap.....too many issues to deal with.

Far better swapping for another type of VE rim.

They wont be a straight fit as VE hubs are 2.6mm smaller than the previous Commodores.

I wouldn't, due to them basically not fitting. As earlier pos t ^^

Why are your current ones damaging your guards and stuff ?

Pretty sure the VE has bigger studs than the VZ, so I doubt the VZ wheels would fit just because of that.

VZ studs are 12X1.5, where VE are 14X1.5

If the rims are hitting your guards, the offset is obviously wrong.

Ruining strut bushes....Doubt the rims would be doing that....You either have other issues (which I can't think of), or you're hitting those concrete barriers in shopping center carparks reguarly.
