If anyone can provide pointers on how to proceed with this issue of mine, it would be much appreciated.

Bought a brand new Barina CDX from dealership in NSW early 2013 and was offered 19" alloy wheels by dealership under "dealer options" free of charge (due to a blunder by the dealership regarding wrong quotes provided).

I've recently had to obtain my pink slip for the first time and was told by the mechanic that 19" alloy wheels are too big for my car and is therefore illegal within NSW. I was never informed of this by the dealer or other Holden service centres during any of my routine services.

Am I entitled to ask the dealer to replace my alloy wheels with an appropriately sized set? Where can I seek further information/help?
