    Lowest on 255/45/18 ?

    Hi, I currently have a set of coilovers which I could take down 90mm at the front at their lowest setting. Realistically, even if I swaped to a set of Solow low am I really going to be able to run lower than this without dropping the tyre size? I don't want to do this because I have a T32 and...

    tyre fitment, 18 steels on a lowered van

The van is currently sitting on what I think are Judd T311R 20s, and have a 255 35 tyre: The fitment is very close, and whilst the van looks cool, and I've had no issues with rubbing etc, I've decided I just can't live with the ride. Im going to...

    20” alloys - how’s the ride?

    Looking to change from our current 17” Devonports to a larger alloy on our T6.1. The current price drop at Leighton has me looking at 20” LV-1’s… Our suspension setup is a ‘Definition Kit’ from CRS.

    Front wheel 20x9J ET35 offset

    Hi All, first time post so apologies if this has been raised already. Purchasing my first T6 and looking to lower it by 70mm and fit 20” rims. Does anyone have experience or an opinion on fitting front 20x9, ET35 and rear 20x10 ET42. Is this config likely to cause any issues i.e rubbing? Thanks

    Planning T6 conversion - do I need to lower the van

    Bought a Startline with business pack but it seems to sit too high. 16 inch wheels. They look better when lowered but is it worth the cost? 18 or 20 inch wheels plus tyres and lowering over £2000??
