Hi fellas if I buy new 235x45R17 17x8" wheels for my AU3 futura will I need to roll the guards? The rubber thats on the car at the moment are 215x60R16's. Will I have to get my guards rolled or should I just need to put them on and get a wheel alignment? How much will I be looking at?

Any difference if I lower the car to say king Low's?

cheers
Rob

I have seen an AU on its butt (like no speed humps low) and he had 18s and he didnt roll the guards the camber took care of it . But he does scrup tyres out on the front abit cos they run a little on the inside.

17s and lows you wont have any issues at all.
especially only with 235s.

I've seen an AU 3 with super lows and 19" 265s all around that didn't have guards rolled, you'll be fine.

It was the guy i bought my rims from.
