I'd be concerned with rubbing the rear tyres with ultralows in the rear. How wide are the 19's going to be?

Cheers

SSL = UL.
SL front, SSL (UL) rear.

Thought i`d jump in here.

I have Advanti 19" rims with 245/35 R19 tyres on my car and i hate having them....every tyre so far has rub out on the inside of the rim so i am going to need news tyres, all this would be fine expect these tyres havnt done anywhere near 5,00kms.

When the tyres where fitted the guy told me that i would need a Cast Iron Kit put on to stop the rear end from towing in.

My cars low to a reasonable height and im going to quote getting it lifted....i pretty much bottom out on the rear end all the time, i can even drive it to melbourne (Canterbury) because it just bottoms out in carparks and whatnot.

Ive got Monroe GT Sports shocks with king coil springs.

Falcon's need shim kits when they are lowered, sometimes more than they might have from the factory. That will correct the tyre angle & stop it scrubbing out the tyres.

As for how low you are, sounds like your on ultra lows. I'm running ultra's atm with not many scraping issues, except the occasional speed hump that's taller than it should be! Driveways are not much issue if you take them correctly.

Cheers
