Im looking for new wheels and also to drop it.

Its a Rover 25TD

Im looking into getting Wolfrace Asia Tec Suzuka Shadow Chrome 7x17 with 205/40/17 tyre's and Gmax Suspension Kit lowered by 40mm.

With it being a derv, will this cause any extra drop at the front end with the weight of the engine?...

Anyone with any knowledge of 25 suspension would be a great help.

Thanks

Gaz

How much diff is there between that one and the Gmax?...
Not looking into spending over the £250ish mark.

Gmax kit is around the £200 mark so if this kit you talk about is within about £50-£75 i would consider it.

Know its a bit out of your price range, but im getting the AVO Chassis Dynamics Kit (springs and Dampers) for 320.

get it here www.motorsportworld.co.uk

or is it .com?

Anyways, it should lower your 25 60-65mm. (As it lowers the ZR between 35-40mm)

Look for you alloys here mate, im sure the ones your looking for are quite cheap. www.rochfordtyres.co.uk

hope its of some help.

Was quoted this on my local Cruising site this -
its not just the lowering you need to worry about, different kits will give you different rides i.e softer/harder etc, people have their preferences and different kits suit different cars, 40mm should be fine but you need to ensure that the wheels have the right offset, dont think rover are bad for their offset but just make sure its what it should be!
How do i look for the offset and how important is it to get them correct?
