Hi there
Anyone running 19" on their van?

I am looking at ET35 19" 
8J Front and 9J on the rears

Do they fit?
Thanks

To be honest even if they went on and didn't foul it'd look cool but ride like dogshit as you'd have next to no sidewall!

I found the best balance of handling and ride comfort to be 16s
But I used my van loads it wasn't a trailer queen / show queen / scene points scorer, it was there to be used and enjoyed without arriving at a destination aching with no fillings left in my mouth!

I terms of ride, I had 18's when I bought the van, very harsh, swapped to 16's and much nicer.

I have 18's on mine. An 86 Westy with -70 springs. Its stiffer than stock of course, but I actually rather like the way it drives.

(not looking to start a fight here BTW, just pointing out that what is way too stiff for some, is just right for others)

19's however would be a real challenge. The rear end is fine, but getting them to work up front is going to be tough. Even with 18's I have to be careful how fat the tire sidewall is from one brand to another to get them to work without rubbing.

I had a similar issue with my old 18s kissing the arch lip on full lock across camber but they were 8.5J - the OP is looking at 8J on the same ET so will make a fair difference. I'd say they'd fit
