    youll be able to go as low as 70mm if u so choose

    For 7J rims we generally state 38-49mm and can lower up to this amount

    38 is fine on a 7" rim - its actually even ok on a 7.5" rim

    Mine are 7.5" and although ET40 - slammed about 55mm all round

    How much do u ideally want to lower it by?
