    What size tyre!!

    Ok might sound silly but i am lowering my astra 5 door 1.8 sri with the Eibach pro-kit 40 /mm springs this weekend 'so when i order some 18" wheels later on some time money willing !.Do i need- 225/40/18 or 215/35/18 tyres with regards to rubbing/catching the wheel arches.. I have been told the 40 mm springs actualy only drop it about 30mm front 30mm rear because of the standard sri springs !!


    Any advise regards tyre size welcome

    225/40 is the normal size for a MK5 mate. 215/35 is used on MK4's
