Having already made one of these threads in the VL section for a mates VL... Im making another for my VN.

I've ordered some 19's for my car, but need to know TODAY what tyres I want on them...

I have King Spring Superlows in the rear, and Lovells Ultralows up front.

Rear guards are rolled, and I have an adjustable panhard rod.

So my question... Will I be fine with 245's? Front and rear... If not, what is stopping me?
If yes, could I dare to go 255's?

My car is lowered on superlow king springs all round and I have 18" 235's all round. I dont have any scrubing issues, BUT I have put my hand over the top of the front wheels to see how many fingers i could fit inbetween the edge of the tyre and the strut, i could barely fit one in there, its very tight. So my conclusion is if you go 245 or 255 you would prolly scrub on the indside of the front wheels onto the strut.

adjustabil strut tops/bearing plates are there for camber adjustment
they might solve this but what about the tyre rubbing on the strut its self?? you wont be abil to adjust that.
fot the rear geta ruler. 245's are 9.6 inches wide and 255's are 10 inches wide just have a look and see if they will fit.
OR go down to the tyre place and get them to fit them to try the difference. they wont let u take it for a drive but hey should do that.

I know one fella who's running 245's, he gets a little bit of scrubbing on the rears, nothing too bad though.
