    19" snowflakes on my zaf what size tyres?

    hello all, im in the middle of refurbing a set of 19" snowflakes to go on my zafira gsi and just wondered what tyre size options i have. they had 215/35/19 fitted when i bought them but i want to change the brand so what other sizes will go on without the rear scrubbing as im going to lowering it 30-40mm? thinking 235/35/19 as there quite popular or maybe 225/35/19 will either of them scrubb? thanks all

    Here is a tyre calculator, you will need to make sure that your speedo is not altered too much ... http://www.miata.net/garage/tirecalc.html

    That above site doesnt tell him if the tyres are to wide for the arches!

    I think the 235 will scrub mate IIRC most people stick with the 215!
    THE STATEMENTS MADE ABOVE ARE MERELY MY OPINION AND SHOULD NOT BE INTERPRETED AS STATEMENTS OF FACT UNLESS OTHERWISE STATED

    thanks davie, i was going to go for the 235 as they seem to be more popular to get hold of part worn the 215/225 are like gold dust part worn
