    am guessing you dont have too many speed bumps round where you live and dont think that would clear the ones near me! they are savage round here!

    I have to go over 5 speed bumps on the way to work, normal ones are between 3.5 and 4 inch. I know this as i researched them for the last car i had as it was very low and needed to check i could get my car home. Been over some today and with a touch of snow on them it was fine. Ive had a few people after my wheels as i did think about putting stock ones on for a bit but i think ive decided i can live with a little rubbing now and again. Mainly if i drop off speed bumps to quick or a big bump mid corner.

    haha thast taking it pretty serious measuring teh ones you normally go over! good idea tho
    glad that your clearing them even with some snow
    to be honest for those wheels i think i could have lived with a lot of rubbing!!

    I know it was partly the reason i bought the car, it had a full miltek system on it which saved me some money. It had been lowered and when i checked it was with H&R lowering springs and of course the alloys which suit the car and set it off. All in all about 4k all in apprantly so i was quite happy.

    Ps i did not actually measure them lol, just researched them on the net

    I used to own a corrado years ago which i lowered and put big wheels on and it rubbed all the time, now im older and wiser and like things to look nice and do what they should without noises lol

    dont blame you, you got a nice base car that really doesnt need much doing to!

    haha ah fair enough... i would have gone out with a ruler haha

    ive still got the recklessness of youth in me then... even tho i should be a little more sensible at times! tho saying that, when i do come round to change my wheels ill prob get something that doesnt rub... just need to try and make up my mind what i want, got it narrowed down to 5... if only i could have them all!
