    How low would I be able to go?

    Going to be lowering the car soon, and was wandering how low I could go.

    At the minute I have a set of SRI/SXI wheels on with 205 55 16 tyres on before I get any issues.

    Was thinking of going either 40mm all around or 40mm front and 60mm rear.

    Can anyone help as i don't want to be forking out for another new set of tyres so soon!

    WIth standard wheels you will be fine with any height as far a scrubbage goes. I take it you have an MK5, going by the tyre size?

    However, once lowered, you will need to get your tracking and camber re set, otherwise your tyres will wear very quicly indeed.

    It's in the MK4 section
    The truth is always the truth even if you haven't realised it yet...
