My EF XR8 has 19x8 front with 235/35/19 and Rear 19x9.5 265/30/19

I has King springs low at the front and it was King spring rear so im assuming superlow as the car was level.

I got 19's on my ED ultra lows all round only have problems with the front rubbing even with the garuds rolled, but doesnt do damage to the tyres as it only happens at full lock. ive got 235's on the front i wouldnt go any wider then that on the front otherwise ou may very well have problems with tyre clearence.

15 inch and 20 inch isnt all that different in OVERALL diametre.. as your side walls are huge on a 15 inch stocker compared to 19's and 20's with 35 and 30 series side walls like mine...
