    19 inch Wheels What Tyre Profile?

    As above 19 inch wheels on an astra coupe what profile does it need to go down to fit and keep the speedo calibrated, oh the car is lowered 35 all round so is their any rolling needed to the arches? Thanks in advance

    215/35 is the only option really.

    215/35 is the smallest you can get I think for 19's, if they don't fit nothing will lol.

    It depends on wheel width and offset, but unlikly you need to roll archs. Trim the liner back though maybe.

    Its the only size you want or you will have poblems.

    Weather it rubs or not depends on the off set of the wheels.

    Mine is quite low on coil overs wit 215/35/19 but my wheels are ET42 and all I had to do was cut a bit of the plastic inner arch away on the front.
    The truth is always the truth even if you haven't realised it yet...

    Same as Lee above, all i had to do was chop away the arch liners all round as my offset is 49, 215/35 are the only ones that fit, but 225's will go on the back of the coupe if the offset is ok.
    plus its a great laugh watching the tyre garage trying to change the 215 on my vxr's as meant to be 235 on there, so stretched isnt the word...lol
