19" wheels & lowered suspension on BA XR8

Howdi,

Anyone whacked a set of 19"x8 wheels on an XR and lowered it considerably....?

Any issues with rubbing the guards?

Any recommendations on types of suspension and who does a great job of installation (in in Melb!). I'm keen to lowered it about 20mm, but attempt to maintain a fair bit of compliance (ef'd if going to cruise around in a go-kart!)...

Heeellllpppp...

Thanks

Re: 19" wheels & lowered suspension on BA XR8

g'day black magic, found ya here, mine is a little too low i think,especially if u do everyday driving, u have to go side ways over everything looks good but not 100% practical.
as for ride quality i'm not a professional so i couln't tell ya that it is better.

cheers
Tom
