    With all the traffic calming areas now, i would go 30mm all round, either that or replace your front valance every week.
    Local Councils dont care about cars, there are hundreds of stupid little humps around where i live, they murder the inside of tyres.

    the 45 drop dont give me any grief with the likes of speed bump and such like. also my valance takes a pounding when parking up nose first to a kerb hence no front splitter! but part from that it never hits anything.
