XBGT 4 Door 15' Tyre Sizes

Im in the process of restoring a XBGT 4 door. I want to run 15'x 8 Globe rims. Does anyone know what tyre sizes will fit without needing to roll the guards?

I was thinking of either 245/50 or possibly 265/50 on the rear, with 225/60 on the front.

245/60 rear and 225/60 or 235/60 front should work OK.

I have 245/60 front and rear on my ZC Fairlane with no problems - I have just installed an XF diff and will probably need to roll the lips now to avoid rubbing

Will depend on your rim offset. Ran 265/50 Eagers under an XC without touching anything on 8 inch rims. Same car ran 28/9/15 Slicks as well with rims made with offset right so should be no worries as long as rims are right offset
