*help* Lowering My Ef & Mag Size

Hi peoples! I think ive just made a big big stuff up!!!!
Ive just purchased a new set of mags. (im happy with the design.) BUT!!! I think i got the wrong size. The size is;

16" 225/50/16R

I also plan to get the car lowered. but i think il have to lower it 3" or more for it to look any good.

Whats the legal limit on lowering?
And will it scrape going over any bump?

ANY HELP WOULD BE TERRIFFIC CAUSE AS YOU CAN TELL I NEED IT!!!



*DOES ANYONE HAVE PICS OF THIS MAG AND TYRE SIZE ON THERE CAR???*
*IF YOU DO CAN YOU POST A PIC SO I CAN GET AN IDEA OF HOW THEY SIT*

CHEERS PEOPLES!

Your wheel/tyre size will be fine. But 3 or more inchers will be illegel thats for sure. I dont know what the legel ride hight is. King super lows would be as low as I would go, as I did on my EF XR8 many years ago..

TS50 no-125
TE50 no-94

I took my mags back and ordered 17". Thought if im gonna spend that much i might as well get exactly what I want.

Thanks for your input thou, Noboss.

Legal height is 100mm clearance from the ground to the lowest part on the car (in vic anyway). Tas should be something similar.
