    235/35/19: Rolling circumference - 2036mm, Diameter - 648mm
    245/45/19: Rolling circumference - 2212mm, Diameter - 704mm

    Your speedo will read 8.6% less than your actual speed.

    Just got that from here http://www.autopartuk.com/tyre-calculator/

    No problem I think the issue may be that they might rub on the inner wheel arch. Is there a way you can test fit them and turn the wheels lock to lock?

    They're going to rub like crazy, I'm sure of it. Mine are 245/35/19 and they are very close at full lock.

    Sorry to hijack the thread guys,, has anyone fitted 235/40/19 tyres instead of the 35 profile, just wandering if the extra width of a 40 profile would offer a bit more cushioning .... Curious
