Red face 15inch alloys on a punto mk1 and lowered?

I have just bought a set of 15 inch OZ racing alloys. These wheels are to be fitted to my 96 punto mk1 1.2 8v (75). What is the maximum i can drop the car with springs/springs and shocks without having any problems or applying any major work? ill be doing the work myself so hints and tips would be very useful. thanks.

Re: 15inch alloys on a punto mk1 and lowered?

On a mk2 the max springs you can get is 50mm, which is fine with 15" alloys. Depending on the et of the alloys, any lower might cause problems,

Maybe some one with a mk1 will shed some light on this issue...

A 50mm drop is uncomfortable on a bumpy road but will require no major work provided you have the right tyres. If you want to go as low as possible, get coilovers all round and fiddle with them till your happy with the stance
