I'm not sure how I feel about the wheels but the car sits perfectly on them. In the pics are the spacers already on? If not I would HIGHLY suggest you don't use any. I just don't see there being enough room for them. The car looks great and doesn't rub as it is. If you add the spacers I promise you bad things will happen.

What offset are the wheels? Looks like they at least 23

no chance in hell you will fit a 12/8 spacer combo.
I have 28s with 10/5 spacers and it's perfect.

Leave the rear alone, 23 is perfect
do a 10mm spacer on the front, will make it an effective 19, which is perfect

Looks great now and will only look better with the grille, sidemarkers and reflectors. I don't see a need for spacers since it looks great and it doesn't rub.

Man those wheels look HUGE. More like 22s due to their design. They don't look bad though.

Yea I've been contemplating making the switch but springs will eventually kill the struts, so whats the point of spending more money on springs and installation. I figured I'd wait it out for a while and then eventually move into some KW's.
