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.

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"
