    Default Vectra's/Signums running 20" wheels

    Hi all, been running 19"s on my Signum first a set of VXR wheels (they went when i sold my Astra vxr) and then a set of bbs lm reps. The reps are looking a little worse for wear and as im a bit anal i feel its time for a change. I can get a set of 20" x 9 et 35 wheels for a very good price brand new so might take a punt. Just wondering what size rubber i should run as not to get rubbing. I was thinking 245/35 or maybe 245/30? Any help would be great.Regards, Rob

    One of the tyre sites has a tyre compatability calculator, stick in your existing tyre details and your proposed details, it will tell you the differences in speedo reading, gearing etc.
