I've just bought a set of 6 16x7 sunnies, so I'll have 5 factory alloys for sale very soon (17's from a 2011 LS). ATM, they're complete with the OEM highway tyres, 6500 km old.
I looked at getting a 6th alloy, but was quoted over $700 each.
If you're interested, PM me and we'll might be able to strike a deal.

So how are you guys getting insurance? I recently put a set of 22" alloys on my wifes car and all the insurance companies wanted to know was if they were legal... I looked up the Vic Roads website because I knew the rule used to be that you couldnt go bigger than 2" above the largest wheel offered by the factory (in this case 17"). But the new rule didnt mention this and only stated that the overall rolling diameter had to be within 1.5cm of the original factory spec and the with within 2.5cm of the width... So the wheels I had were ok... How would you go with these tyres that are so much bigger? Are you not worrying about telling the insurance companies or are they ok with it and if so which company are you using?

VSI 50 would make 33s legal on a pb, by my understanding. I know it is not approved yet.

It would be nice to know where we stand in NSW as there has been too much speculation on the vehicle regulations for too long! The tyre shops down here don't help with this grey area either, as they will fit whatever you ask for without question or advice. (As long as you are not being too silly)

Interestingly in QLD my father has tried to go from 31s to 32s on his PB challenger. 4 tyre shops refused to fit them stating it was illegal. Whilst I think the QLD limits (15mm) are ridiculous, I do agree that the qualified premisis should not knowingly fit illegal modifications to road registered vehicles. At least everyone knows where they stand then.

I am insured with Shannons. They give no technical guide lines. They just state must be legal. They will insure an unlimited list of modifications/extras though.(I have heaps) Unlike most others.

The 32s on a lifted challenger look so small and unassuming, I doubt anyone would pick them.
I only run my 33s on occasion so I guess that's my own risk reduction.

Default All dressed Up for Trip!

As promissed, i have some photo showing the 33s along with the clearance & trimming I have had to do.

Since the trimming of the mudflap, I have had no issues with rubbing of the tyre whatsoever. I have once had some very sticky clay make contact, but man was that clay nasty!

The clostest point to contact is when the suspension is partially flexed up and the wheel has a small sterring input. This lines the tyre edge up with the bulge in the mudflap. It is the bulge that I needed to remove.

Note that I am running 30P offset 17x8 rims.

Hope this helps those considering their tyre options.

Yep definitely due for some sliders. Just need the $ or more time (to make em myself). Short on both these days. Would also love some rear protection - Now thats BIG $$$

One of the advantages of the P30 offset and 285 tyres is the increase in track. It does keep the side of the vehicle a bit further away from sides of ruts etc.

A bit more wheel track would be nice, but clearance in the front guards becomes more of a problem.

If you can stretch the budget - go for alloys on your second set. The steel wheels are so damed heavy and despite my best efforts fitting and two balancing attempts, I cannot get the steering wheel wobble to stop.
