    Lowering van on 18's

    Hi, brought a set of 18" pentas the other day for my van, tyres are 225/40/18, no problems with scrubbing (touch wood) but it looks like a 4x4 now the question is, what setup do I go for as I've tried searching the forum but nobody seems to have the same size tyre, probably for good reason at a guess.
    Other problem is I sometimes carry a cement mixer in the back so can't go ridiculously low.

    I would be gratefull for any help
    Thanks, Dan

    I have FK's with 19's. Scrape a little on 235 35 19's. Just ordered some 215 35 19's. See if it solves the problem. Touch the inside of the arch sometimes though.

    bit confused now on what to go for, did'nt realise there was such a choice ie Highsport, Konig, Silverline and Silverline X!? any help on wether it's worth spending more to have more to adjust or are the 'Highsport' enough?

    Thanks for your help AK, reading up on it stainless steel plated ones are going to be longer lasting so it's between the Silverline and Silverline X, the difference being the dampening adjustment on the 'Silverline X', is this needed or is the fixed dampening good enough? what would people recommend?
