What Size?

Hi ya, I have a 98 AU Futura which came with those ugly 15" factory rims. Currently I am running a set of 16" Series 1 XR rims, but want to upgrade. I have been told that to keep within the law, I can only go to 17"s. Is this true anywhere, or just in Qld? Cheers.

98 AU Futura 6cyl auto. XR8 mags, front DBA slotted rotors, rear spoiler, louvre, towbar, grille mesh, Tickford snorkel, painted rocker cover, Fairlane leather wheel, blue dials, chrome inside door handles, chrome cup holder, XR blue/black leather T-bar shift handle, front lambswools, Ford tow pack, dash mat, rear console and front footwell lamps, slimline weather shields.

VIC: You can go to 20x9.
NSW: You can only go to 17x7

I have seen an AU, with 19x8 on in QLD. And i've seen many others with 17s, and 18s in QLD. I'd check it out again.

LG, I am sorry mate but that is incorrect. On an AU1 the biggest you can go is 19x8 with 245/35R19 and 19x9 with 295/30R19

AU2/3 and BA can go up to 20"
