i would suggest lowering your current setup just a little bit!

I dont see any need for lowering, its not the most needed thing.

Nice wheel choice with the lip. Hope the care makes you happy

Yeah, I never responded to your previous post because I didn't have anything nice to say about those rims. You had already spent your money on them so there was no need for me to tell you they were atrocious . The news rims are much better. Can't wait to see your car after you drop it.
Thats whats good about this site though, you try it so that I know not to....
