    ~Rolled Arches~

    Does anyone know anywhere in the basildon area where i could get the arches rolled so i can lower my car. bit reluctant to just leaf through the yellow pages.

    Its a 52 astra sri 5 door. I had 18" wolfrace alloys put on but it looks a bit high, so I wanted to lower it, but was told i'd need the arches rolled first.

    ive got an astra same as yours, on 18"s lowered 50mm all round, with 5 people in dont rub at all, never has rubbed in 6months of owning the wheels, depends on the offset of your wheels??

    should be printed on the back off the spokes mate, take a wheel off and find out, should be as close to 49 as poss, mine re 45, thats why i get away with being so low on 18"s
