Hey Fella's,

I am due to get some new tyres and want to go 225's all round. While under the car the other day noticed that there isn't much clearance between the tyre and the stub axle to upper ball joint arm with 215's on.

Do the 225's fit ok or do/will they rub? Any one got them on the fromts now?


Thanks

blah

I had 245/40/18s on the front of my ef and 265's (pirelli pzeros) on the rear.. :P

IMO i wouldnt go more then a 245 as a 255 really doesnt make a huge difference unless your on a 9" wide whel. keep to the 235 or 245s on larger wheels and 15s can easily do the 225s even lowered
