Wheel Advice

Hi there, was looking to buy a set of 18 inch wheels for my classic, but was wondering if they will fit as the car has been lowered 25-30mm, would this cause scrubbing on the arches or would they be OK.

Thanks

James

nope should be ok as long as the offset is right, but bear in mind you'll be killing the handeling if you go above 17's

I would go for 17's because replacement tyres are cheaper
