VFII SSV Redline Ute
My previous VF SSV ute has 245/40R19-98Y as standard, total height of the wheel is 245 mm x 40% x2+483 mm(19")=679 mm.
My current VF 2 SSVR ute has 245/35R20-95Y at the front, the total height of the wheel is 245 mm x 35% x2+508 mm (20") = 679.5 mm. The back wheels are 275/30R20-97Y, the total height is 275 mm x 30% x 2 +508 mm (20") = 673 mm. The difference is 6.5 mm but the rear wheel has a higher loading of 97 instead of 95.

Please try to get minimum W rated instead of V rated...

Ssv redline
I have no idea what your talking about but from what i gather my 20s on my redline are illegal?? It says on the tyre they are rated for 700kg. If it was illegal why did it pass a road worthy? Sorry for the plain terms but im a noob looking for clarity

...here in SA the rules are that you can't increase the tyre size by more than 15mm over the original sp
Sorry about the calculations, I were referring to the above quote that any overall differences less than 15mm is all right regardless to the wheel rim sizes.
VF1 SSV 245/40R19 is 679 mm
VF2 SSVR Front 245/30R20 is 679.5 mm
VF2 SSVR Rear 275/30R20 is 673 mm
So changing the 19" wheels to 20" wheels, the difference is less than 15 mm which is all right.
