18" wheels and 40mm drop ..clearance??????

Hi Further to my previous thread about which lowering springs to buy (thanks for the replys...very interesting) I would like to know now specifically from those who have lowered their gtvs and have 18" wheels fitted what if any clearance problems they have encountered. I am umming and arring if fitting lowering springs is a good idea or not as the work will be done by a garage so i dont want to have to go back again to have them removed.

I had 3.5 cm vogtland ones and 18" wheels fitted, no problems occured.Sometimes when turning full right or left down on a slope it tyres were touching the inner plastic but no problems occured at all, with 40 mm springs you may hear that sound more often though...

Yep second that.

Mine are 40mm lower springs and 18" wheels.

Rubs on inner plastic when you are hard cornering and hit a bump.

But that is ok
