I was wondering if you guys could post me some pics of the rims you're rocking on your VP's.
Been looking and looking and looking and I'm just not sure because I'm having trouble visualizing the rims on my car!

Car is Navy Blue/Silver.

Cheers, Alex

You will need spacers for the rear unless u find the right offset, Calais have a 28p offset, normal commos are 43-48p depending

I got 25mm bolt ons made up for my rear so VT rims would fit on

Hey mate these are ve ssv rims I think lol,

because they scrub on the inside of the gaurds. they have a shorter diff, it's 40mm narrower and will scrub all other wheels, VR and onwards, im using 8mm spacers and longer wheel studs to suit my VT clubsport wheels.

the wheels you bought from bob jane must have the correct 28p offset

yes. I think your berlina is live axle and not IRS so yes putting the 28p calais wheels on your berline (probly has 43p wheels factory) it will be a little wider. they will not hit on anything tho so there no need to worry.

VP calais wheels are 28p
VQ statesman/Calais International wheels are 35p
HSV VP clubsport and senator wheels are 30p

so it doesn't matter too much.

And yes I've owned all 4 sets of wheels and know there the correct offsets

Thats what i used to say, then ended up with 25mm spacers n VT calais rims, much nicer, 1" bigger so still get cheap tyres
