    Hi this is my first time posting, not sure whether or not this is the right section, anyway;

    I currently have an SV6 Ute with the stock 18" wheels pictured below. My question was whether or not i could fit some 19" SSV wheels (see picture) onto the car? Would there be any issues fitting these wheels? I have seen other VF's getting around with these wheels on them.

    Thank you

    No dramas other than your speedo will be slightly out. Of course all cars post 2003 are anyways.

    How will it effect the speedo? The op just has to make sure the rolling radius is identical between the two, by fitting the correct 19" tyres and the speedo will read the exactly same....

    Unfortunately, I can't remember the exact fitament of the tyres, with the 19" range to have the same rolling radius, as what the 18" ones are

    True if you keep the rolling radius the same, but then ride quality will of course be more harsh as you have less side wall on your tyre.

    VE and VF have the same wheels and hubs. 245/45 R18 is standard size, versus 245/35 R19.

    Check your tyre placard in your driver's door. If you don't have one that corresponds to your wheels than you can get into some strife with tyre shops providing warranty on tyres and possibly your insurer if your in an accident. As your looking for OEM wheels you can get the correct placard from Holden or online.

    Rubbish...as long as the tyre load rating is correct for the vehicle and the rolling radius isn't increased by more than 5% (I think), the car is perfectly legal and NO tyre shop will void a tyre warranty, NOR will any insurance company void a claim

    Hmm then Bob Jane's were giving me porkie pies when I put HSV 20" in my car but only had a 19" placard in door. They sold me the tyres as not fitted despite putting them on until I produced a tyre placard the next week. I told them it seemed stupid but they said it was the letter of the law here in QLD.

    Yep, they bullcrudded to you.....The one law that is uniform throughout Australia, when it comes to motor vehicles is tyre fitament......I stated the requirements that are allowed these days, Australia wide......Even using the old rules (I mean ones from 10 years ago), you could still legally fit 20" wheels to your car, as it was optioned with that size, without a tyre placard change.....

    FWIW, Bob Jane = full of crap.....how they stay in business is beyond me

    And I started in the tyre game when I was living in QLD....I moved to S.A 20 years ago

    Thank you all for your replies.

    I will be putting the correct tyres on the wheels which are 245/40 19's, so this should mean there won't be any drama's with the speedo?

    My current tyre placard only shows the standard 18" information, where would I order a new one if I had to?

    I got mine on eBay but it seems I could have saved myself the $25 from what VC says.

    Changing your tyre placard is pretty illegal from what I can gather.

    Here in Vic you can: (off the top of my head)
    -go up to 25mm wider than the widest rim specified on the tyre placard
    -Run any tyres that are DOT approved and are within 15mm of the original rolling diameter
    -Correspond with at least the minimum load rating on the placard
    -Fit rims that have any one of the approved stamps on the back of the spokes (there are many different standards, look on the vicroads/rta website for a list of approved markings)

    Being original Holden wheels, you'll be fine. As long as you adhere to the rules set out by the governing body you'll have nothing to worry about. Insurance issues will only arise if your car isn't roadworthy. For example, wheel spacers, incorrect load ratings, wrong tyre sizes, rooted tyres etc etc.

    This is pretty much a national wide ruling.....The only slight difference, which you may have over looked is, you can go 25MM wider than what the widest optioned wheel is for a particular make of car....eg for the VE, that makes it 22", as it came optioned with a 20" wheel.
