    As soon as I've worn the tyres out I'll be switching them to 235 40 18, my audi's a sport model but if I decide to take it down a further notch or 2 I'm wondering just how far to lower it.

    I dont want to feel like I'm driving a plank of wood that bounces out of every pothole in the road, I want the car to look at a nice low height without spoiling the ride.

    You suggestions please :)

    I'm running 225/35/19 front
    235/35/19
    ride was good, considering I have coilovers wound half way down.
    My subframe did occasionally scrape on bumps

    But 18s on a 40 tyre should be more than fine, and still relatively comfortable

    Ah sorry mate,
    well my coils are down about 70-80ml
    and I want them up haha too low for me

    so a 60mm spring drop would look smart on 18s and you will still have loads of clearance around arches and underneath
