Thanks to Lude.[:D] (Got em in 2 days man).

Car is so low that I was working for 3+ hours to bend the fender wells out to make them turn... I'll need to get them professionally rolled, but it drives ok now. Rubs in the tight corners, but so did the S4 wheels. I LOVE the way they look and are perfectly spaced (IMO). Anyways, enjoy. (Better pics will come soon).

(So if anyone asks, I'm on Bilstein grooved fronts, Bilstein sport rears, and H&R Race springs. [up])

From the middle of the fender to the ground it's 23.5" ( I think... I just ran out and did it. It's so F-ing cold )

i have 19x8.5 rims, if i install bilsteins and sport H&R will they rub? now i have stock shocks with sport H&R, i was afraid of going with bilsteins...

^Yes you will rub. You're better off staying with Sports.

Thanks guys. Tomorrow, I'll have to go raise up the front strut. I can't hardly turn without rubbing the shitaki out of my fender. Another .25" up will help for sure.

I LOVEZ THEM... So many people are alredy staring and I've had them for a day LOL.[:D]

I agree^^^ They look very nice.

But hows the car ride? With slim tires, and lowered suspension? Im thinking of getting new wheel/suspension in the spring, but does it ride a lot worse than stock?

The wheels are Flik Artics. You can find them on www.edgeracing.com

The car still rides very nice, I just avoid EVERY bump that I can. Obviously the suspension is pretty stiff, but it doesn't bother me.

Thanks everyone.

I feel bad for your oil pan. Handling is helped any by being that low either. Braking distances will also be longer. Vanity is an evil thing.

So thats what my car would look like if i bought rims instead of a BT ..........

Looks great man...but i gotta say listen to onemore cause its true, you might squirrel w. any quick movement.... they actually look diff on your car than lude's though

I'm not stupid about ride height. You're right, it's vanity, and I love it. [:D]

Oil pan has never been hit, been this way for 10K+ miles. You won't hit crap if you're not an idiot. [up] Beg to differ all you want.
