    17's + 60mm Drop ??

    I would like to put 17's on my astra as i think i will get too many problems with 18's, if 18's would be ok then what would you advise i lower it by ?

    If i drop the car 60mm on uprated springs and shocks will i get any rubbing ?? i need to bear in mind that my boot is kinda heavy and i have friends lmao

    I dony know what offset to look at for this reason so any help would be great,

    thanks

    Jonny

    60mm is quite low thou so watch the bumpers!

    btw Im seriously lookin at some 18s and a 40mm drop but as already said - as long as the offset is correct u should be able to lower without any problems.

    i have 19's on my sxi on coilovers dropped about 50mm with only slight rubbing at fron when road really bumpy. 18's shouldn't be a prob get a 7.5 wheel with a offset as close to 45 and run a 215/35/18 tyre
