Look at the back of the mag. There's usually the stud pattern (114.3) for Falcons, and offsets between +40 through to +30 is recommended for AU, stamped on the back of the rim. Offsets of +45 would foul on the control arm, and as it's just 5mm difference between +40 to +45, +40 is the max for AU's.

Do you guys have to get engineers reports for putting wider rims on cars? We do in NZ - because of the extra stress on the axles - even though it's stuff all in the big scheme of things - just the government feels the need to be seen to be doing something.

Only need an engineers certificate if more than 1" wider than the widest original equipment wheel. eg if widest original wheel is 6" then 7" is ok but need engineers certificate for 8".
