It would look fine, but I don’t understand why you’d want to! 255 will offer marginally more grip, slightly more rim protection, fill the arches better, plus they’re easier to get hold of (with a wider selection of the latest tyres too).

Great, that has sold it to me, and in hindsight, I may not get an LSD for road use, so at least it will make up for some grip.. Excited to get them fitted with the new tyres and to finally get rid of stock Rft's!

Cheers for your help Marco.

Following on from my previous issues.. What offset would I need to go 19x9.5s on the rear? I'd like to go 30/265 if possible.. Guessing ET40-45?

Out of curiosity, has anyone managed to successfully fit 20s under their 135/235?

ET48-ET50 for a 265mm rear tyre.

20’s don’t fit nicely in reality.

Thanks mate. Will be offloading the ET35s and on the hunt for some replacements.

Yup, they’ll just fit. Obviously very stanced.

Should get a 255/30 on the back.
