    Hello 2ondeck I've done it ! And pictures to prove ( I'm running them with 20mm hub spacers ) mine are the original silver ones sprayed technical grey ( that's the colour they call it )
    my suspension is the sports ( not aero ) no mods to suspension .
    tyres I used is 235/35 ZR 19 XL , I went for jinyu gallapro ( value tyres ) all round ( not everyone's fravorite , but the grip is amazing , good all round tyre .) hope the photos help .

    Thanks for advice can I ask where you got the spacers from and I take it with the aero it will sit slightly lower like them in that colour.

    Re: Vxr 19inch

    Yes you can , I got the spacers from that well known auction site , they were made by BIMECC
    the type I got come with extended wheel bolts . There's others that bolt to the hub and you use your existing wheel bolts , to bolt them to the spacers , ( those in hindsight are the better ones because it can be a pain to line up the wheel hole , and the spacer hole and the hub whilest holding the wheel steady )
    yes yours will sit lower due to it being the aero suspension .
    that colour yet again from the auction site .
    made by Gtech, they do a package where you purchase 3 cans of top coat , 1 can of primer , 1 can of lacquer, and that's enough for 4 wheels , I was a bit doubtful, so purchased 2 sets , but they were damm right ,
