    Hi guys, new on here and new to Vito ownership, I have a 2011 facelift 110 LWB.

    I'm currently looking at lowering the van on new wheels and need some advice.

    Ive been offered a set of the same wheels that come on the Viano Grand edition and think they look fantastic, the Viano Grand Edition looks to be lowered a fair bit, does anybody know by how much it is lowered from the standard van height?

    All i seem to be able to find are 40mm lowering springs, has anybody used these and does anyone have any pictures to give me an idea of the look?

    Thanks in advance

    Ben

    Always thought that the ride height was the same but was varied by the tyre profile but was made up again by increasing the wheel diameter. You could get 19" wheels on the Viano but the tyre profile was low. You would think that this would make a hard ride but the one I had for a while was surprisingly good. The older V-class, W638, was lowered against the Vito by putting smaller wheels on it but didn't look good. The spare on the Viano is the same wheel/tyre as the Vito.
