If they're originals you'll need 35mm spacers all round, you can get away without using them on the rear, but it f**k your track up and looks dumb.

No spacers means they will hit the suspension on the front, and even if they could fit they would sit a long way in.

either that or do what others do and get e series offset copies. I have a set on mine.

Spacers can be had from Tempe tyres for about $50 a corner.

Off topic but I have to say this. I have absolutely nothing against new forum members, it's easy to make mistakes. The issue I have is that we don't have a V8 moderator as all the moderators here are 6cyl enthusiasts.

mate i would go with the copies that whay your car will be legal and you will have no insurance issues
if you put spaces on any wheel they become unroadworthy by rta rules and if your car is in an accident and yor insurance company see them thet can refuse a claim because of the vehicle not being road legal at time of the accident
