i have had 245 35 19 on the front of my el , the tyre height probably wont fit as i have 2mm-3mm clearance to my front strut spring base so i dont think the 40 series tyre will clear. they fit and clear on the rear no probs

Yeah read about ppl having 245/35/19 with just enough clearance, but just trying to find out if anyone is running 245/40's, as you've said they would clear in back,but in fronts possible no clearance.......

im 99.9% sure they wont fit on the front

they are slightly bigger in overall rolling diameter than the 225/60/16's i had which didnt fit on the front either

If I buy a set of 19s with 245/40s and make them fit, will you pay for them?
I am 100% confident I could make them fit with very little to no trouble.

hey daquilina, when you were told your tyres would not fit, did they say if they would fit if you had 35 profile rubber or if you used 235 wide tyres?????
