Where is the placard on FG's aren't they normally in the drivers door sill?

You are right... Read my post but?

He has more with which changes your tire wall height through the profile percentage... Then also has a larger diameter wheel...

A 225-60-15 and a 225-65-15 would not have the same rolling circumference nor would a 205-65-15 compared to a 225-65-15...

Cheers,
Tim

nope, only via flash tuner , speedo signal is read via abs sensors/ wheel speed..
and afaik changes made via flash tuner only give you the option to change by diff ratio only not %, i could be wrong though...


Thats pretty much what fords WDS does. according my BA manual, you can enter the diff ratio and tyre option, (only choices are are factory options).

You could work out the closest factory combination of diff gear and wheel size to get it close.

WDS is Fords diagnostic tool.

If you find a nice dealer, it may not cost much. Good luck though, most of them try to pretend they no thing about that sort of thing.

i think you have your sums wrong. your proposed rim has on the fronts 225/35r20 and rears of 275/35r20.
yet you show a difference in front to rear circumference. both tyres have the same rolling diameter, all that changes is the width of the tyre.


wtf man, your completely wrong

to the op, 225mm tyre on a 9"-10" wide rim looks stupid and may even be dangerous. Im wondering do those front wheels even fit properly with the correct sized tyre on there like a 245?


Nothing dangerous about a stretched tyre, providing it isn't too far stretched. I had 235/40R18's on 18x10's. When the rims are finished (Centres going from Chrome to black, repairing gutter rash) I'll have 18x8.5's with 235/40 R18 Invo's and 18x10's with 275/35R18 Invo's

I'm paying to get them done. The fronts (Ironically the wheels that didn't have stretched tyres....) have buckles, so I need them done. Depulu Wheels are doing it. Although not cheap, workmanship is excellent.

If you don't mind me asking... How much is it setting you back? I was going to try myself, but I don't know how good I can get it...

Not wrong it's not cheap... But I guess it's a fair size job to get perfect. Hmm have to keep that in mind... Cheers.

Yep. The wheels are lightweight Japanese 3 piece stuff. And in Negative offsets. I fail to see an issue here.
