have you even tried them on the car? how wide?

VP senators come on 17x8 +30P offset wheels which is the large factory VP wheel. If you have 20x8.5 with 245/30R20 tyres they should be close n might only need a 3 or 5mm spacer. any longer then 5mm (so 8mm-12mm with need longer studs) 100's of people have run 20s on VPs mate just take Felony for example (google this white Calais)

here's another example

Awesome reply , and pic thankyou .. these wheels came off a wh statesman and run 225/35/20 , they fit on his perfect with no mods, i just read through felony's thread... very nice ! im assuming from what i have read they will fit the front .I bought them of a mate and our vp is on the other side of town atm.. but ill give them a go next weekend .. i might see if i can get some new arms like it suggests above .. hmmmm :/

Just found this you posted some time ago :D

Yes if there 30P they will fit an IRS VP with no mods.


getting sick of this questions can we make a sticky?????

VP & VQ IRS cars NEED 30p offsets

VR-VZ IRS cars run 48p offsets

hence the VP different (wheels track is almost 40mm narrower)

bloody 20x8.5 30P offset wheels fit I've seen it done hundreds of time already!!!

here's proof or Google Felony a white VP Calai

The WH has different front struts, Holden seemed to change the design from VR upwards. WH would have 17x8 +48P offsets factory so the only way to tell is try them (without checking offsets). 225/35 tyres suit VR n up but hit the struts off VP n older hence I suggest 245/30 tyres, which is what Felony ran.

The only reason why VP and VQ's have rear issue's is because they were the first Holden's with IRS and the diff's were too narrow n had different offsets compared to older Commodores like VB-VL's so when the new model the VR came out they fixed the problem. the VR parts from a wrecker would be cheap. I have all the gear pictured here (you dont need the axles tho)
