    hey all, looking at a set of vy signatures for my s pack, 19 inch obviously, and i also want to have ultra lows all around, all though i have a feeling im gonna have problems with scrubbing, if anyone has gone down this route, information on the subject would be great! That is preferred choice of wheel size and springs, but will settle for 18's maybe inform me on the subject guys! p.s sorry about all the noob posts, just trying to learn! thakns again.

    No you won't. Proper rubber and an adjustable panhard rod. Done.

    As above, no need to roll guards, I'm running 19" wheels and ultra low springs in the rear.
    Adjustable Panhard rod is the way to go.

    You can do it yourself, but you need to be very gentle so you dont crack the paint. Just about any tyre place can do it for you with a tool that bolts onto your hub is like $80-$90 per guard last i heard.

    If you can get them rolled well for cheap then why not?

    My VN was on ultra lows with 245/35/19s. had all new bushes, adjustable panhard bar. diff would sit perfect when i was driving alone but as soon as i towed a trailer or had heavy load it would *just* touch one side. Thought, what the hey, get them rolled, so they are well clear.

    I also had a tiny bit of rubbing on the plastic inner guards at the front, and would just lightly rub the front wheel arch when turning into driveways. Not enough to catch the guard and damage it though.

    I have 18's and there is about 8-10mm between the tire and the spring hat thingy.

    Oh and to be legal you cant go bigger that 18's tp pas a rwc inspection either..

    When my calais had to get a rwc the tester said its the biggest wheel you can get for a vn.. Its 10% rolling diameter from the biggest wheel fitted to that model car..
