i reckon twenties would be too much i have 18's (thanks very much) and have some clearance issues with ball joint grease nipples - had to remove and plug em! and i have 245/40's all round and the front does catch every now and then, as well 20's will make standard brakes seem really small unless you get ricer chromies :lol:


Mate i just got myself a set of the same rims as yours and i havnt chucked them on yet but i was just wondering if ya ball joint grease nipples were the only problem youv had with them and what size spacers did you use with them (if their not already pre AU) cheers


Yeah i only had the probs since i went to 245's on the front, 235's seem to be the more common
size to fit, but i got these real cheap. no other probs but if you can get the lips rolled it helps too. :D

This is just a guess, but i think there is some adjustment on the ride height sensor, which is a little level switch somewhere near your rear axle, but usually everyone wants to get rid of self levelling due to the fact that those shocks are hard to find or the compressors are $1200 new or the switches are obsolete and seemingly not repairable as was the case with mine ithought it was so cool until it stuffed up and i eventually had to replace it with Pedders gear, as it couldn't be fixed, anyway sorry for babbling on good luck with it eh!

i run 20's on my au falcon and i run 245/30/R20 and have no clearence issues....just rolled front guards and trimmed the rears....looks great.

just a thoughts 245/40 might i a tad high for your wheels and car
