My mistake but even the decal won't help here, you are only allowed 1" above placarded size.

Go to another dealer, the guy checked when ordering mine and said it was no problem how many do you want.

Yeah the parts guy was looking it up for me and the manager walked past and overheard me say GT and then stepped in and said that we couldn't order it.

It just means you can step up to larger wheels (19's) without having to get it engineered

The theory goes that you are not allowed to increase the diameter or width beyond a predetermined amount for the vehicle type. This sticker will make it easier to prove to the inspector the wheels comply as your current sticker probably say's 15's or 16's 5.5j.


VIC roads Quote:

The width of any replacement rim must not be:
- more than 25mm greater than the widest wheel specified by the vehicle manufacturer for that model or vehicle series; or



Vic Roads Quote:

The overall diameter of any replacement rim and tyre must not be:
- more than 15mm greater than largest diameter tyre specified by the vehicle manufacturer for that model or vehicle series; or
