Yeah, but the wheels I'm buying off a mate come with tyres that are 40 profile, they're 19/245/40

Ah ok, thanks for that, I'll see if he can do a deal without the tyres.

there is only a 5% difference in the tyre ratio what you need to do is put one on your car with load and test it out,and your speedo will be out as soon as you change your wheel and tyre size from factory sizes anyway

What are you saying not true to? 35 means tyre ratio which is 35% of the width which is 245 so 40 would be 40% ratio which is 5% diff so it would depend on how lowered the car is for the 40s to be able to fit in my opinion,but my opinion doesnt count if Im wrong

That part. My ute came with 245/40/18's on it, I now have 245/35/19's on it and the speedo registers the same. It's all to do with adjusting the tyre height to compensate for the rim.
