They are AU offset, they won't fit your car. You'd need hub adapters or spacers, but it's not worth the issue.

Our cars are about +6. I think +10 is about as much as you can go.

if u like those wheels and wanna be different then go for em. They will require hub adaptors DO NOT fit spacers....ring your local transport authority and check whether hub adaptors are legal in South Australia when they have been certified by an engineer and you have the paper work.....ring a few local engineers see whether its worth the cost to u...hub adaptors will cost around the $300 mark for all 4.

Most states and territories have the sames legislation which is u can have multifit bolt on adaptors if they have been certified by a qualified engineer to deem them as road worthy/safe and comply with the adr spec...you must then always keep the paper work in the car.

You can like many tho and just put the wheels on with adaptors and not bother to certifiy them...if ya play dumb when ya get pulled over and check...most cops wont care or notice u have em....only the transport guys that really look and you just say ya bought the car like that and what can i do to avoid trouble again.....if they arent massive wheels or have a huge width a cop would never even look that close at ya hubs/wheels only be if he wanted to check out ya tread for wear.

In the end your money your choice
