VH Commodore
i am currently rebuilding a VH Commodore for a car i can use on my P plates and i found some wheels for it that i actually like, but they are 20 inch, now i was wondering what will i have to do to make them fit and is the any restrictions that stop me from haveing 20inch rims.

20 inch rims on a vh, your asking for cops to pull you over.
will probably throw your speedo out of wack, feel every nick and bump in the road..

You will have to roll your guards most likely, take pot luck i guess.
but honestly, 20 inch rims are highly un-necessary, in my opinion stick with 17's or 18's bro.

Meh, you all suck :p

Do what you want O/P.
Obviously, roll the guards and fit later model front struts, (VN/VS) VH's spring saddle is mounted too low to fit them. They scrub on the underside of the strut/saddle. Alternatively you can give the spring saddle a stern wack up with a lump hammer to make them fit :p Or fit coil overs.

Drove it like that for a few months, before it was painted blue, matte black, shaved and never got pulled over.

i read the section 8 on the vic roads website and it didnt really help me at all, plus it is out dated buy almost 8 years and im sure the laws have changed since then.
