Ok, im coming up for new tyres soon, and am just wonder how i'd go with a 245/35/18 as opposed to the 235/40/18s on the car at the moment. The car is an el with those e-series offset bf gtp copies that are 18x8.

Anyone run a wider than 235/18 on their eseries?? As i'm wondering about wether it will scrub on the upper balljoint on the upright.

Any info is greatly appreciated

your local tyre place should be able to tell you if they will fit or not...ask for a test fit..you can always roll your guards if u want them bigger..

They will be fine, if you roll the front guards. I run 245/45/17's on the Terrorist, but they needed to be rolled. I also run 275/50/17's on the rear with no complaints at all
