Add up your front and rear axle weights
You will find them on the chassis plate
Then obviously divide by four that will give you your minimum legal requirement per tyre
Take seriously into account you want to drag a half ton payload up the motorway
Hope this helps .

You should really keep the rolling radius the same otherwise you're gearing and speedo will be way out plus the tyres wont fill the arches at all and that doesnt look good even lowered. I dont think you'll get the 'euro look' you're after by just sticking on low profile tyres. The euro look is more about stretched tyres and that's a whole nother can o worms

there's some good info on tyre sizes here if you've not seen it:
