Hey guys, does anyone have problems running 19"s on their ef?

Im planning on getting some fpv copys, and im just wondering if they will hit the guards? the car is on super low king springs all round..

Also I think ill need a camber kit before i go for a wheel alignment?

should i just go for the safe option of 18's?

I had 19" Apec Apaches on my old XR6 with no dramas at all, no mods to guards or anything

Depending how low you want to go though i would probably recommend rolling the lips of the guards

I haven't had guards rolled for ages now but it wasn't expensive to do it

Give Ozzy Tyres a call in Hoxton Park, they have roller there and do it in house while you wait

I have a el with superlows all round, and the 19 inch fpv copies, All i did was lip the guards slightly at the front, thou this isn't needed, just did for safteys sake. Also because i run a 265 rear tire, i had to roll the rear part of the rear guards pritty flat as with 5 people in the car it started to scrub. Can take a photo for you if you really want. But they do bolt on no problems..
