Hey all

Am about to purchase some 19s for my falcon, and was just chashing some advice. I hear from time to time that it's better to use 235mm tyres on ELs as 245s will rub. Just wondering if anyone can shed some light on what size tyres they are running... Cheers

Also the wheels are e series offset.

I use 235/35 with mine there's no rub, I was told by the tyre place that the 245 will rub at the front

Just to add to that, 245/s will rub on BOTH the upper ball joint AND the guard UNLESS you get it rolled. The rubbing on the upper balljoint cannot be stopped however and will cut your tyre to bits in no time. 245's on the back will work, but you will not be able to rotate your tyres for even wear.
