This is 8j with mods to the body ... if you don't want to do the mods and want to go low ... this is to big !!

Mine was lowered 85mm at the front & 60mm at the back :mrgreen:

7.5 J may be too wide also. This probably depends on the offset (ET-value) of the rims.
7J "ATS Classics" with ET 20 will fit without changes to the bodywork and 185/60 will fit nicely on the 7J rim.

like erik said, 8j is too wide, 7.5j at the back and 7j at the front should fit without any mods to the body.
it depends also of the stongnes of your suspension.
if you got weak shockabsorbers, then the tyre's can hit your wheelarches.

7.5j with 185-60-13 tyres should fit nice at the back
and 7j with the same size tyres at the front.
