Unless things have changed since I last looked at this, you can go +1 on the size of the largest rim fitted from factory.

BA FPV's had 19's so 20's are not a problem.

Not sure in WA, but in NSW you can go 2 sizes up, ie 17" to 19". So you can increase your rim size by 2" up on the largest rim which was a factory option on that model car. Check your tyre plate fro your car and that will give you your standard as well as options.

F6's, Gt's are not used as a standard as they are a different model.

Dont listen to anyone when it comes to legality of mods... Go see an engineer.

My experience with this is cops wanna defect you..They will!
