Didn't wanna go 19s, but these have come up for sale...I'm looking at purchasing some 19" copies, with 235/35 fronts and 245/40 rears to go onto a EF Fairmont sitting on Pedders superlows... Should I have any problems? I know I'll need the guards rolled..

if there the correct offset shouldnt have a problem, roll the guard and just make sure you have clearance, if need be you can always adjust the cam angle

19 inch tall... 245 wide with a 40 series profile.. pretty big rear tyre's.. no doubt with lowered suspension you will need to lip the guards...

ok im a little confused i thought ef/el are +6 there for when u put a au-ba wheels on thats about +35 it sits in buy an inch or so

So buy gettign +15 o would have thought it woudl come in 7-8ml

The wheels im looking at anyway have offsets from 15-45 just need to no what will work on the rear to fit a 265-275 with the best offset
