    40mm + 16in = yay or nay?

    Hello!, my Astra is being lowered 40mm on Sunday and sometime in the future I'd like to get some of these



    but atm I'm on 15's, these

    Sorry about pic sizes, I know it won't rub with 15's but what about 16's?

    thanks

    You could fit 18's on a 40mm and it wouldn't rub.

    Those 16's will be fine, although a little small with that drop IMO.

    My Astra is lowered about 40mm at the front but only about 20mm at the rear, this gives you a rough idea though, mine is sitting on 16" Irmscher Spectra line alloys.

    I myself am un-decided whether I'm going to upgrade to 17's at a later date.
