    Default Clearance?

    Anybody on here lowered their car 50mm with a set of 225-40-18 tyres on?
    Does it rub the arches?

    I think most people will tell you not to go that low on a Corsa.

    It won't rub though, although you might have issues with the front bumper and road debris...

    I've got eibach sportlines which are a 40f/30r on 18's with no problems other than the burg front splitter catching on speed bumps every now and then.

    I have springs H/R -35 mm front and rear and fitted 225/40 R18 and they rubber arches on corners, so I recommend to you 225/35. Now I have 225/35 and no problems at all.
