ALFA 147 JTDm 8v

Wave Who has 18" wheels on a 147 and has them lowerd?

Hi eveybody, my trusty old 147 with 17" tele's is going and my newer facelift is coming next saturday now im looking at 18" wheels but only if i can lower the car 35 mm or so , my old car sat fine looked good etc but its time for a change and im hearing conflicting stories as to how it sit with the 18's . So who has a 147 on 18" thats lowerd just with springs.
Also im thinking of putting 215 tyres on insted of 225 to minimize rubbing..

The cars silver and im looking at these wheels

Personal opinion but I don't like an even number of spokes especially on 5 stud wheels though 10 spokes are OK when they are in 5x pairs.

215/40R18 XL are the correct 18" size for a normal 147 anyway (but on a 7" rim), not 225.
