The tire sizes are 245/35R19 and 275/30R19. I went with the 275's in the rear because the PSS's are a more square tire so essentially they are similar to a 285. I've got the LCI iDrive controller coming, and that's it for now. But slowly there will be CF pieces going on, I'd love to get the CF dash and door trim. I'm also looking at some springs, front lip, and some other minor touches. I've also got the hardwire kit coming for my V1, so that will be in the works also. I'm going to have fun with this baby!

I will get the wheels on by the weekend, at least that's what I keep telling myself. HAHA. Remodeling the Kitchen has just been a beast, but it's coming to a close.

It's dirty, and will be getting waxed this weekend. But I put the wheels on and thought I'd shoot a quick iPhone pic. Need to throw some springs on it to close the gap a bit, but the wheels look amazing!


What y'all think? What springs should I go with? Even though I have EDC, do you think it would be beneficial to go Coilovers instead? I've always gone the Coilover route, and loved it but not sure about the whole EDC issue. I know there is an emulator so the car would be fine, thoughts? Not really tracking it, but love to feel planted.

Some fresh pics I took yesterday! Thanks to Jurrian and Alan for the sexy wheels! Now I just need to throw some springs on it to lower it a bit!

If I was to do it again, I would've done super deep at all 4. Live and learn, but wheels are easily changed so maybe next summer I switch it up. LOL

Wheels look good. I went RD springs route. Ride is good, handling is awesome. No sacrifice on ride quality.

I went with the 30's because I read the PSS are more square and when I lower it, I didn't want to have any rubbing. I can't complain about them at all. I love the look and the setup. I've been looking at the RD springs also, good to hear more first hand experience with them, thanks!

ET20 is the offset in the rear, if I am remembering correctly. Thanks for all the comments! I'm trying to allow the mod bug to get me a little at a time, we will see how that works out! LOL!

As soon as aftermarket wheels go on, it looks off until it's dropped...bummer. Stock wheels pull it off though.

If you want a subtle drop I'd recommend Eibachs. I'd look into Swift or RD's before H&R's if you want to go lower. If you want it slammed or to be adjustable, coilovers.

Nice looking wheel! Have you noticed a difference running a 30 ratio?

I've been looking at the Swift's and the RD's, why would you suggest not going H&R's? I've always done coilovers, but with the EDC I'd rather just do springs with the M. I haven't really noticed any difference with running the 30, and I love the way it looks. Thanks all for your nice words and input.
