eibach springs question

If i drop my car with the eibach sports, the least aggressive springs, how will it affect tire wear? Will it wear out the inside of the tire faster?

Will the stock shocks not last as long with these springs?

Don't worry man, it'll be practically the same since the camber should/will be OEM specs

Make sure to get an alignment after you upgrade the springs to avoid excessive or uneven tire wear.

Are there any performance gains from lowering with the eibach springs or is it mainly just for looks?

looks!

some claim performance... but none have produced any proof they get a performance gain with springs. I'd be willing to bet if there's even any change at all performance degrades.

But in my opinion the looks are worth it! I am currently running Eibach's and happy with them.
