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])

what is your ground to fender height in front?

1 ate T
03-16-2007, 02:14 PM
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 )

03-16-2007, 02:17 PM
so i'm guessing you are on the lowest groove then?

damn thats low as fuck. 23.5. how the hell does the car move that low. im at 24.25 inches and I cannot get over shit

03-16-2007, 02:42 PM
damn, that looks really good. im thinking about bilstiens with h&r sport, but your pics are making me rethink the sports for race springs...

03-16-2007, 02:48 PM
^^yeah definitely go race. you'll regret it otherwise

03-16-2007, 02:52 PM
that looks great with your drop.

03-16-2007, 03:10 PM
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]

if you want mobility, get the sport springs, trust me.

03-16-2007, 07:24 PM
that looks tight, nice set up man! would you dig your centers in a bronze with silver lip....hmmm...like how the porsche guys run with bronze lm's with silver lip.

03-16-2007, 09:09 PM
well i dont care if they rub..am going with bislteins and Hr also, the thing is how can we make them not rub with the H&R race springs ...roll fender? any thing else
by the way 1 ate T ride looks awsome... me like it lol

03-16-2007, 09:22 PM
I have grooved bilstiens and nuespeed race springs and the bilstiens are on the second to highest setting and I still rubbed with 18in BBS I had to roll the fenders with a baseball bat.....

03-16-2007, 09:26 PM
damn man those looks good. i should have jumped on his wheels a long time ago.

03-16-2007, 10:19 PM
what rims are these. size, width, offset, tires, etc...

looks really really nice.

03-17-2007, 06:32 AM
I like them.

03-17-2007, 06:38 AM
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.

03-17-2007, 09:37 AM
those are 225s on 8.5" and you still rub?

Ahhh I want my rims to tuckk like that in the front!!

Def go with race springs, I have them and I wish the front was a little lower,I need some bilstein grooved shocks in the front.

03-17-2007, 10:34 AM
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.

03-17-2007, 10:51 AM
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.

03-18-2007, 10:27 AM
Looks nice man.

good call w/ Flik.

03-18-2007, 01:08 PM
damn man those looks good. i should have jumped on his wheels a long time ago.

03-18-2007, 01:12 PM
1 ate T im glad you got them so fast. they def looked diff on my car then yours. i think they looked more tucked on my car and i was 24.5 from ground to fender. probably cuz im pearl white

03-18-2007, 02:30 PM
