    Default New wheels on - To lower or not to lower??

    Just fitted these (235/35/19, ET35), well chuffed! Thanks to Keithy for the inspiration Reckon it looks good on std sri springs, but toying with 45/40 PIs. I've read a few positive comments about this combo and want to sort twin tailpipes too, so gotta be careful with budget. Anyone got any horror stories/alternatives before I take the plunge?

    Cheers

    remember sri springs are 15mm lower anyway, so 30mm springs will only lower by another 15.

    45mm springs all the way in my opinion.

    Thumbs up

    Cheers for the comments folks. Opinions are clearly pretty even on 30 vs 45. Reckon I'm swaying towards the lower option after measuring up as the gap at the front's still a bit big and 45 would bring it in nice and close,. Hadn't considered the sri already being lower tho , so cheers for that; defo some thinkin to be thunk first (and gives me an excuse to look round the gallery)
