Hi,
im in the middle of getting my XD ute registered. I just wanted to know what size wheels they came with, and what size wheel i can run? it might have 235/45R17's on it, would these be ok? i remember hearing that you could run 2 sizes bigger, which would mean they came out with 15"s?
cheers

The XD ESP came out with 15 X 7's The old Globe Bathurst stars. Like the ones on the XY/XA GT's.

as long as overall rolling diameter is not more than 15mm bigger than largest FACTORY option on YOUR model. technically unless yours is an ESP you cant use that spec. having said that who the hells gonna know with a car that old? 17's would never be a problem

Not sure on nsw regs, If the tyre placard states 14X6 as the largest wheel (some will state 15X7 ie. Snowflake) then 2" may be your limit. Just borrow a set of wheels for reg if you are unsure.
