    Default Newbie questions:)

    Hi Guys,

    New to the site, few questions. What are the best springs to drop my C2 Code and is it possible to shoe-horn 18" rims on it?

    Thanks in advance

    Most will answer with the normal answer of Coilovers for a decient lowering, but a good set of SPAX coils will do you.

    And Yes 18" will fit under as long as you get the correct PCD and OFFSET also running 215/35/18 tyres to keep correct rolloing radius for correct speedo reading

    PCD : 4x108
    Offset : 15 to 25
    Bore : 65.1

    Thanks dude, much appreciated. I've gone with a set of cituning springs as advised in the modifications section of the forum. Think I may go for 17's, 35 profile tyres on 18's will be a bone shaker! Thanks again

    Sounds like what i had on my VTS before i went back to stock - 17's and cituning extra lows, its not a bad comprimise between cost and looks and ride quality. I find the coilvers quite bone shaking!

    I've just bought the cituning extra lows (not fitted yet), any chance you have a picture of your vts? Just hope that they aren't to low!

    C2 Code, 16v 125bhp, leather interior. Just bought some xenon (white) bulbs for it, lowered springs and looking to get a nice set of 17's on it, should look tight after that

    Thats mine on 17s to ride is harsh especially with all potholes about atm speed bumps are a biatch to for scraping front
    could put 19s on and not fill that gap ;/ plus any bigger u got probs catching on inside of arches

    Loving how yours looks elemental, I'm hoping to get a similar stance on mine when I lower it.

    The ride wasnt too bad compared to the standard springs, i think the big difference is going to coilies. Then you'd need to buy a pillow!
