Hi everyone.
i just want some peoples opinions on wether i should get 19" wheels.
i'm looking at a set of 19x8.5" will this be alright?
if i do so, will i have to get a camber kit when i lower it?
also, how low should i go without it scrubbing?
:thumbsup:
thanks everyone

Dont get 35's, 245's are VY's minimum load, And its dangerous. I just got 19x8's the other day, Scrubs when i go over big bumps/humps when travaling, But ive done nothing to the camber nor gaurds yet. Im getting my camber ajusted this weekend. As the VY's have enough camber adjustment in them to stop it from scrubbing, I might need to roll the gaurds a little, But not much at all. I also run, SSL's at rear and SL's at front.

Check my car out if u want pics.

Iv got 19z with 35z and 245z on my vz ute with no camber kit and sssl king springs. I dont get any scrubbing but it is close. Gaurds are not rolled either. Get the camber kit tho, inside of my tyres are starting to wear out quick. Might have to put the stockies on soon haha

19 x 8's will be better suited than 19 x 8.5's.

Either way just make sure your offset is correct.. with tyres go 245's for sure..

I had 19 x 8 with 245's on my old VY acclaim... with SL fronts SSL rears.
no camber kit and it was fine
