I Just bought a set of 19 inch VE SSV wheels and tyres which I got really cheap, I understand I need to have them machined to fit my vy ute but im wondering if the standard tyres which i believe are 245/40/19 will fit without any issues, the main thing im concerned about is if it changes the speedo reading? Also would there be any rubbing issues or would i need to go down tyre size??
speedo will probably be out about 5ks (reading too low, you'll be going 105 when it says 100)
Shouldn't rub. Ideally you should have 245/35R19.
I just put a set of 19's on my car last week. I got a set of 245/35/19, haven't noticed any difference in the speedo. The diameter of the whole wheels, including tyres, is pretty much the same as it was when it was stock. Because my 15's had thicker tyres. And there's no issues with rubbing, plenty of clearance. Too much IMO, I'm now looking into lowering.
245/40/19 will hit the front strut tower. You'll need new tyres for the front.
Speedo will be out about 3-4k's as TMM said.

If I change all the tyres to 245/35/19 it then shouldnt be out on the speedo?this is just my main concern because I can't afford to lose any more points
You should go 245/35/19 purely because it still leaves clearance above and around the whole wheel. And AFAIK, ur allowed to get away with 10% above the speed limit because speedo's can legally be 10% innaccurate (is that correct?). So having the speedo at most 5 km/h off isn't gonna cause you any grief.
245/"40"x18 will rub especially on the front struts so sell off the tyres if they are any good and get some 245/"35"x19 and you shouldn't have any problems.

Hey, don't know if you're still interested, but i found this tool online:

The difference % is what you're looking at, obviously the lower the better. It's also cool that it gives you a rough speed difference estimate
