    Default lowerd pics please

    could you guys n gals post some picks of your vecs with lowerd suspension inc how much it's been lowerd by and what profile your tyres are,

    thing is iv'e got my new 18s on with 35mm profile and can decide weather to go with just the springs or coilovers.
    not sure if a -45mm is going to lower the front enough as i have a mahoosive gap from tyre to arch.

    hi mate, the measurment you get for profile on tyres isn't in mm. The profile is a percentage of the width. so if you had a 225/40x18. this means your profile is 40% of the width of the tyre (225) so the actual mesurment in millimeters for the profile will be 90mm

    So profile isn't really going to help you as you dont know how wide everyone's tyres are

    right thanks for confusing me lol
    what i meant was the tyre height.

    thanks for the pics lads,
    is -45mm the lowest i can go without changing the shocks.
    am i going to have trouble overs bumps and going to multi story car parks if i get coilovers

    you will never find the tyre "height/Profile" as a measured figure anywhere.
