Depends on how wide the tyres are........and the offset of the rims

I have spoken with 4 people with 19"s and all have used 245's on the front and they have all scrubbed so they got 235's

This is after ppl say yeah 245's on 19"s dont scrub..............

I have 235/35/19"s on mine and they dont scrub :)

Short Shocks and Super Lows Front and Ultra Lows Rear

PS my 235's on my 17"s scrubbed before i fitted my 19"s but easy fix was that i rolled the gaurds with a baseball bat

Might look different when they're on front and back, but from that photo it makes the car look too high and the wheels look too big.

They're 245/45/19's..can i expect them to hit the guards?

i should note that i will be using hub adapters.

would if be alrite just to roll the front guards, or will i need to run a different size tyre?

are they AU offset? you will need 30mm spacers to clear upper ball joint
just roll the guards. you'll be fine

Mate, I love em! What wheel are they? They look more like 20's then 19's maybe because of the smalled front wheel. Ive got 18's on my el and I reckon they look too small from too many angles, I came so close to buying a set of 20's a couple of months ago. I wouldnt hesitate to go 19's or 20's except the fact that mines a work car. I think on 20's you need to run a /30 tyre to fit under the ball joint, not sure bout 19's but Im running /40's on my 18's.

The other thing to be aware of is, Ive heard that you have to grind your studs to shorten them so they dont protrude past the hub adapter, not sure if this has to be done in all cases.
