Different size wheels are legal. Fronts as a pair, Rears as a pair.

The size of 20 and 22 maybe be too big tho. Comparing, you can legally run on your VP, 17s on the front, and 15s on the back (sorry not sure what VU came with standard), as long as each pair have matching sizes and tread pattern.

To be honest wasn't a fan of them when i got them but they're still worth a fair amount of money since they were only put a few weeks before I bought them. I'll trade them soon enough.
And I don't think they're legal either (due to me not having them engineered), the varied sizes doesn't matter but they're a certain amount above the stock wheels therefore making them defective. And remember thats how I bought it, I found it a good deal at 12k.
Yes it's manual. =]

Ha, thanks. I called the place where the rims were purchased before I bought the car and they said they'll accept them as a trade in, I'll most likely just get 20's all round so I can lower it a little more.
Chaser's would probably go well on the back too ;)

man i used to get hounded when i had chasers on the back... what sort of style rims where you thinking of?
I was thinking of getting 20" Verde Madonna's in chrome (from Taleb Tyres) if I wanted to be a abit of show off, if not I thought a set of 19" VZ R8 wheels would look good too.
I'm leaning towards the 20's due to the fact I can trade in my current rims at Taleb and have pretty much nothing to pay.
Then lower it and chuck on a VX Maloo kit, or if I have the money go all out and get a VZ Maloo kit (unlikely).
