I agree with this. Lower profile tires demand lowering the car to look right.

You are correct.

3) Good luck with springs but I think it might cost you a few bucks over the long hall for new EDC suspension components. Springs may do Ok for garage queen cars but not daily drivers. The physics will catch up with you eventually. Time will tell I guess....
Worst case, I'll be removing the EDC suspension and putting in coilovers. At least I'd have relatively new suspension to put back in for resale.
