Hi Joeauk,

Being able to have the wheels sitting inside the arches will depend on the offset of the wheels you have bought and whether they are spaced or not.

As for lowering it, I'm not sure on how much you will be able to drop it. Again, it depends on things like depth of tyres, whether or not you want to roll the wheel arches, if you don't mind them rubbing on a full lock, etc...

You could get 40mm quite comfortably (presuming low profile tyres) and you wouldn't suffer from the wheels rubbing.
