    Couple of Pics of the Coupe on 19's

    Just thought I'd share a couple of pics of my coupe on the brand new 19's I brought from Vauxhall. They were on for all of 2 hours before I took them off. The tyres were scrapping badly on the inner arches, due to the size being 235/35/19 on the rims being 8" wide. The fact the car is lowered 35mm didn't help either. I'm hoping when I return it to standard suspension setup at the weekend (selling the car soon) I will be able to put them back on without them rubbing.

    Anyways, enjoy

    Shame that really mate, as they really look good.

    Maybe you should have fitted 215/35/19 tyres, could have given a little more clearance

    Springs would have to be rock solid to avoid scrubbage as well !

    always wondered what those would look like on a coupe - now I know - smart.

    Would look better on a black car. - But still nice all the same - hope you get your suspension sorted

    Minor scrubbage I could cope with. I would just drive it very carefully for a week or so, as they would be coming off soon anyway to be sold as the car is going back to completely standard to be sold. I just want some use out of them before I sell it all on due to the amount of money they have cost me !!!! :O
