    pics of lowered on 16's!

    Looking at getting a set of corsa sri wheels, which look like smaller versions of astra coupe turbo wheels, but they are 16's.

    Was thinkin abut gettin sum coilovers to, but i want the car to have a decent stance, and whether 16's would be enough to fill the arches!

    If anyone ahs any pics of their car lowered on 16s, could you post em up so it gives me an idea!!

    Cheers

    They'll need the right tyre size as the Corsa ones will leave the wheels a little lost on the Astra. There was a member with these wheels on his silver mk4 but I can't remember who it was - looked pretty good.

    As above

    I had my Dotz 16" alloys off a corsa, and they're in 195/45/R16 and look very small even when lowered 30mm!

    my cars on coilovers and got the standard 16s bk on for a while and hate it. 17's are a must on a mk4 dude imo any ways.
