Has anyone fitted these?

Mainly curious as the the max wheel size that the lowering allows. I don't fancy making wheel arch modifications!

Have something to contribute?

as long as you have the correct wheel offset you will be fine. H&R are a good brand and some guys on the ST owners club have 19" alloys fitted without any problems.

I've managed to procure some lovely 18's now. So I think I will have to stay with the current springs until I see how much room I have to play with!

As long as they don't rub, it will be lowered. I did see somewhere the speedo adjustments for different wheel sizes. Will look that up again when I get in. Not as easy to search from my phone

the difference is minimal, especially as the speedo's are out by upto 10%
