The cops shouldn't really pull you up for having bigger rims. They wont attract too much attention. its only if ya car is revving a braapin' all over the road. Unsure on the size limit, i was under the impression that you could have any wheel size as long as it doesn't rub against your wheel arch. Correct me if i'm wrong. As for a body kit, check on ebay, they have them occasionaly. You got spell check on your computer??

Width - Replacment rims must be no more then 25mm greater then the widest wheel specified by the manufacturer for that model/series.
Also cannot be skinner then what was standard fitment.
Diameter - Rim and tyre combination must be no more then 15mm greater diameter then the largest diameter fitment specified by the manufacturer, or less then 15mm from the smallest fitment.

Wheel and tyre must not foul any part of the vehicle.

Ahhh, now that's the tricky bit ;)
Here in vic (where I got those laws from, should have said that...) they say 'series'.
Which could be EA-EL or EA-ED, EF-EL, and included the EB GT, EL GT and FBT, which all got 17's.
BUT, it might mean the only thing in the same 'series' as an EB GT is the EB, meaning 17 is biggest factory fitment for them, but on an ED 16 is :P
It's a f**k minefield basically!
