    Question Who has 245/35/19 on lowered Veccy? Does it catch?

    Hi folks. I need new tyres as they're really worn & now one of them has a very slow leak. My mate recommends that I get factory sizes of 235/35/19, especially coz mines been lowered. I don't know what to do coz I really wanna go for the 245/35/19 option. Another thing aswell, my car is always full of people. Any advice will be much appreciated. Thanks.

    PaZ!

    I'm in same spot as you mate. I'm in two minds. Between neuton nt5000 or the maxxis mz1. The maxxis are meant to be good in wet. I still need to do some research tho. What you thinking of going for??

    As said 245's offer better protection and no rubbing issues.

    Afterall they are only 5mm wider either side.

    looking at NT5000, Nt8000 if avv soon, khumo ecsta's also looking at other brands through a mate at a wholesale place, perhaps some dunlop's or bridgestones if the price is right

    At one point I was running 255/35/19 on rear and 235/35/19 on the front for the dragster look with no rubbing. But moving to 245 all round as I've lowered it 35mm and it doesn't look right. Got 4 branded part worn 6-7mm 245's for £120 so happy enough with that.

    going by tyre reviews on tyrereviews.co.uk it looks like i will be going for either NT5000 or NT8000, depending on the price difference.

    does anyone know if we can get a discount from neo brothers or not???
