    alloy offset problem, can any1 help?

    Hi!

    Ive just joined this and have abit of a query concerning alloy offset.

    i have my eyes on a set of 17" alloys which have ET40, i understand that the offset on an Astra Mk4 is 49. I also possibly plan on lowering the car 30mm.

    Is this going to cause a problem with rubbing or scoping before and after lowering?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    you should be fine then.im running 18s with 8j and an offset of 39 and mine rub slightly so with a 7j and 40 offset you should be fine with a 30mm drop.

    cheers, just wasnt so sure if it would be ok or not, heard mixed opinions about it, lowering it is just a thought. Does the difference in offset effect wheel bearings etc?
