I had to roll my guards and re-shape my brake lines a bit with 235-45-17 on 8.5" wheels... I am running pedders grey springs all round and sportsryder front shocks... I couldn't go any lower without cutting coils...

Photos of mine are in my build thread which is linked in my sig...

Cheers,
Tim

No because the wheel is physically bolted to the upright... Nothing can change between it and the upright...

Lowering close the gap between the top of the upright and the inner mudguard...

Cheers,
Tim

Go with superlows that's what I'm running on my eb no guard rolling necessary. But I did have to replace the Greece nipple on my ball joint with a bung to clear the tyre.
