I'm getting it lowered today so maybe that's why they look small. They are actually the same 19" but much wider at 19x9.5 and 19x11. It could also be the OEM 285 rear that is stretched on that 11. I'll post a pic this afternoon of the car lowered.

As fas as bright n shiny, can't fix that one but I like it that way

At the end of the day, it is your car and you should strive to make it look how you want it! My opinion is irrelevant.

That said, I am looking forward of seeing the results after lowering!

pic #2 looks just about right, but then in pic #4 do i see some reverse rake going on? maybe it's just the camera angle?

sweet ride nonetheless.

Not sure what that is but I was standing in the gutter while taking that one Might also be because the car was sitting off kilter (see pic 1 and 3). Street is not level in those three pics.

Yes what you just said. Note to self...don't take rake pictures when standing in a ditch.

Looks great with the drop. Do you plan on getting some wider rubber on there? It should finish off the minimal amount of perceived gap you've got left, at least to a reasonable extent.

The '11-'14s I've seen with no rake look reverse raked to me, because I'm so used to the BOSS and Brembo/Track cars, which have a decent amount of rake naturally. The base suspension I believe is the only one that sits without rake, and sometimes to me that looks like saggy diaper syndrome at stock height. This car looks great though.

GB is an amazing color on the BOSS, glad they offered it in '13.

Much thanks for the kind words. Yes I will eventually move to a 305 rear tire. I have about 60% tread on the oem 285's though, so it may be awhile. I have a daily driver so chances of this one getting more than a few thousand miles on it over the next year are pretty slim.

If you can't think of better ways to wipe out the OEM tires than just putting miles on them, you're doing it wrong! Moving fast enough and with smoke pouring off of them, we'd all be nicer about those wheels too.
