    Default Lowering springs ???

    Ok so she's running on 18" Astra Turbo 10 spoke wheels now with 225/35/18 tyres. Looks like a Range Rover too !!!!! Lol

    Was wondering thinking about lowering her about 30mm but carry a lot of gear when I go camping etc.

    Would like to know if 30mm is ok to do without scrubbing on arches when fully loaded with luggage and passengers ????

    Also could I goto a 235 tyre Maybe 40 profile ????

    Thanks

    235/40 18 is actually the closest match to factory fitted 215/50 17 so you could deffo go that way
