    any probs?

    will there be any issues with me lowering my car with 40mm koni (springs only) on genuine 5 star alloys? i.e will they rub/catch or will it be ok?

    17'' 5 star wheels 235/45/ 17's 7.5j x17''



    A4 TDI (B6) STANDARD CAR.

    Its the standard Sport suspension mate, I think its Originally 20mm lower than the standard suspension on an A4.
    Ive had loads of people ask me if ive lowered her but I think its the Kit that gives it the 'lower' effect!!

    You'll be fine with the standard alloys.

    My car is about 45mm lower than an SE now. Measuring the arch to wheel centre is the most accurate and consistent way. Rear is at 330mm and front 345mm. I'm running 10mm spacers on the rear and 8mm on the front too. No issues at all.
