    Few questions about tyre/wheels/suspension on MK4 GSi!

    Just a few questions

    18s fit OK with a 30-40mm drop?
    how wide can you go?
    whats the best offset?
    what width and profile tyres?

    heard good things about just getting some 30mm eibach springs are they really that good?

    I planned on coilovers but i might wait till i have abit more free cash and until i get new wheels so will just the springs be alrite for a few months, will the shocks hold out?


    the plan is kahn 7.5 or 8 x 18s with 215/35/18 tyres with the 30mm drop but then looking to drop it maybe abit more with the coilovers, sound good?

    sorry about the 20 questions

    any help greatfully recieved

    most of the answeres to your questions are in the astra FAQ under wheel guide, but in short.

    Yes you can fit the Kahns on the coupe with that size tyre with a 30 drop or more! Eibach are certainly the most chossen set up on here and in the VW golf mk4 world, so I dont think you will go wrong there

    Speak to LMF for all the bits you need and mention astra-sport for a good price

    I had Khans on my hatch and they rubbed like hell, so took them back and they are getting some custom ones in with a diff offset. Taking a hell of a long time though so I may ask for the money back.

    hatch has less space and you may not of had the correct offset

    thanks for the help guys

    i was under the impression that the kahns would fit easily enough!

    im also looking at the irmscher polished stila wheels in 18s, anyone know what the offset is on them?
