5 x 112 et 38 8.5 x 18

my van has been dropped 60 at the back and a fair chunk at the front, will I have issues with the arches catching and the sliding door opening ?

I use 8.5x19 with slightly stretched tyres and an offset of 35, lowered on 85mm springs but with KW shocks. I didn't have any rubbing with the 4 steelies, tyres and a 9 stone dog in the back. However, the door rubber does catch on the wheels and there is literally 1-2mm clearance for the actual door. So it will be close, hope it helps.

was a slight issue with sliding door solved by chopping rubber bung on back of door.
