Smile Coilovers & WCI wheels are now installed !!!

After 12hrs of hard work this weekend, coilovers and wheels are now installed

Still need to adjust a couple of things but after the add of adjustable link kits & spacers up front car should be on point waiting for my next purchase (Vorsteiner front bumper)

I know most people prefer much more traditionnal type of wheels but sometimes its nice to try something different









All comments are welcome !!

Cheers
-Mike

Oh nice you put them on after all
Not a fan of how they look. But stance looks really good once you put on the spacers up front it will be perfect in my eyes

I like them. Should look sick with the new front bumper and potentially thicker tires.
If you coated those gloss black with gold rivets it would look INSANE

Looks awesome! I think they'd look even cooler if they were painted some shade of non-metallic silver or grey. The polished might be a little overwhelming since the wheel is already on the "busier" side.

Great choice though!

Something about it doesn't sit right with me. I'm not sure if maybe its just the angle of the pictures but the wheels look tiny on the car. The front fitment will be way better once you add the spacer. All in all its not bad, but you need a front lip, the car looks odd with only the rear diffuser

Props for being different man, but 18's just look so small on our cars. Any updated pictures with the spacer added to the front?
