Also which springs are better on ride and feedback eibach springs or H&R?

Would that set up still accommodate the wider zhp wheels if I update in the future or does the spacers have to come off? I understand the zhp wheels are half inch wider than oem 19s

I currently run 18/15 on my ZCP wheels so you should be able to do at least that.
