Not really possiable, or in real terms at least, unless you've got big money and time...
Pretty much would involve for the front and rear some sort of cutom rotor being made as the hubs are on them. If you extend your existing hub's then it's just the same as hub adapters, just an add on.

as far as i know one of the brake upgrades on offer means you end up with AU ba offset on the front, rear would be a case of changing your diff to an AU one

AU stuff doesnt go in easily.

rear end can go in not too bad.

Thanks mate...

Only reason why im considering this is coz of the 20's.. hard to engineer... nobody dodgy these days lol .. so its either this option or buying a set of customer made 20 inch rims with a different offset... any ideas who does it? i kno if i go to tempe tyres.. they wont help with nothin lol

I know of a person who got a set of 19" ROH wheels custom made to their specified offset, plus larger dish on the rear etc cost over $3000 i think though...expensive exercise.
