If they're on anything other than 18's or biger, it will just look like you've chopped the springs, and the cops will most likely notice it too.
It would be extremely low on stockies...

if you run the correct wheel/tyre combination the overall diameter shouldn't change much at all and therefor not affecting the ride height.

mine sits about 335mm htg (hub to guard) at the rear and 345mm at the front and i don't get hassled. just don't draw attention to yourself by driving like you stole it or anything.

legal height in s.a. i think is 350mm hub to guard. other states also carry on about ground clearance of 100mm or something but haven't heard of that here.

from what i can gather, passing rego and being legal are 2 different things. i bought my eb from nsw complete with current roadworthy and lower than what it is now. it was 320mm htg all round. very illegal... which is what i found out when i tried to get rego changed to s.a. rego.

having roadworthy means jack.

Different roadworthy criteria in different states is all.
