    hey guys
    got some wheels. no idea what they suit but they mount perfectly on VS stud pattern. the offset though is rotten!

    have a huge backspace and sit waaayy out in the guards. so i'm thinking maybe they are BMW or could they be falcon? they don't sit well on HQ-WB pattern file-63 (4).jpeg

    Most likely BMW,ford wheels do not fit. Actually they are awesome not rotten,and will work well on VN GPA,SV5000 and VP/VQ irs models as they have 30p offsets,regular commodores VN - VF are usually in the 45-48p offset range which are **** on those previously mentioned models. More pics of your rims please.

    Email the photo to yourself and resize as large or medium. Then they will upload no problems.

    Or use a third party hosting site like Imgur.

    dont like downloading free software. there always seems to be a catch, i tried to resend to my email and its not giving me an option to choose size. in any case it's only 2MB and the site says under 5Mb is ok. spew

    Kingswood and Commodore patterns aren't the same. Very close but no cigar, not good to use Commo wheels on Kingswoods.

    +1 for Imgur as a image hoster.

    its doing my head. I just checked the rear axle (looks like a WB holden diff) with one of these wheels on and it's mounted perfectly! Maybe it has commodore axles in the diff? The wheel didnt fit well on front hub that's for sure. there is very few number on the wheel. odd size at 7.5" wide. My experience is that commy is usually 7's or 8's
