93 VP Berlina Series II
Hey there, sorry if this has been asked 1000 times before but I just can't find a conclusive answer on wheel offsets after doing a search.

I know BMW wheels share the same PCD as our Commodores, and the set of wheels I'm wanting to get have a 70mm centre bore so they'll fit on no worries - I'm just worried about the offset. The BMW wheels in question are 20mm offset (E39 5 series). I have a feeling this is a bit less offset than factory Commodore, but by how much?

Any help greatly appreciated

cheers

FXST01 you rock mate. I've looked everywhere all day and havn't been able to find good information on it.

So I have a VP Berlina Series 2, in theory this should be 26mm + offset and the 20mm or so BMW rims should be within range.

1 more question - why is the offset on the Berlina so different to all the other models, the steel rims look just the same? Looks to me like it could possibly be a typo and is meant only for IRS cars?
