I understand that major rebulding narrows the aftermarket in some cases, but my experinces is the oposite, IF you do the rigth things to the car. I have had about 60 different cars, and noone have left my garage in "origina" condition.
My plan is in this case only to lower the car in fron ca 1 inch. Now it looks like my trunk is full of metal, no car should be lower in rear that in front. It does not look good.
I hope to fit this wheels:
Back 9"x19 offset 45mm with 235/35-19 (change = -2,03% ) I have tryed this on the car, and it fits.
Front 8x18, offset 20mm with 215/35-18 (change + 1,45%) I have not tryed this on the front axle, but with my testing an measurements it will be clearance to the caliper and the suspension.
What about the traction issue, is it so sensible that any change will affect this system?
(I`m thinking about the tire-circum; when the back tires are worn out, there will be a difference between the circum in frontaxle and rear axle. I changed the stock-tires back one week ago, they`r total worn out. Fronttires still like new. This has not affectet my tractioncontroll, an i re-set this in the computer when my new tires where installed.)
