As far as I know Dom, yes, there illegal here in Aust, UNLESS the car manufacturer has revised an Australian Standard to correct a design or safety defect on a car model.

Ok...just made few enquiries, and the reason why there illegal in AUST is because it changes the overall wheelbase width and the vehicles footprint. It has to do with Ausralian Standards. Also, spacers can be used to change the stud pattern so different wheels will fit the car, thus again, changing the footprint.

Top marks for the investigation, I'm just about to go through the immigration process for Aust so if I bring my car I'll have to pull them off.
