That is the logical thing to do.

Nice and tastefully done!

That tire is just waaayy too tall for me. IMO it would look better if you were low enough to tuck most of it but I think the better fix would be less tire in your case

I'd have to agree with aeion.. I don't think it looks terrible. Could look better lower, but your tire makes it look like a monster truck at the current height. Again, I'm not trying to be a ****.

hey guys just ordered my set of 527's chromium black 18x8.75 +20.. looking to put a 225/40/18 on there for just a very slight stretch. what do u guys think? stock suspension for now

also would the stock lugs work with these wheels just as a temporary while i order new lugs?

^ Does it make a difference between the generic cheap lugs or the expensive ones besides the looks?

(i have to purchase new lugs for my wheels too)

Herp derp

As far as lugs, the quality is the biggest difference between parts store/online lugs

Ummm, the +20 pokes a lot at stock alignment settings. You may need a roll in the rear to start

For the most part, not really. They are just cheaper quality and the "chrome plating" will chip and look like **** in no time. I'm sure someone will say otherwise, but use a torque wrench and tighten to spec and you should be fine. If you track your car, spend a few extra bucks.

thanks! i can probably dial in just a little bit of camber with the stock suspension and as for the rears i guess i might trim down the inside of the fender, i know you can't really roll the rears.. would be more of a trim.

found lugs gonna grab the mutegi sr48 for now
