Dont laugh at it. It used to be 5 colors so i made it primered flat black lol. Stuck in 4x4 mode but.....
Just ordered these. 17x9s all around with 15mm offset.

Lowered on these Megan Racing Street Coilovers. If anybody sees any problems that i will run into please let me know. Its my first time ordering rims and coilovers but to my research these will fit with minimal adjustment (spacers,fender rolling) TIA

What's up peeps. I used to have enkei 92s knock offs in 17x7(forgot offset) running 215/35
then i got these:
JNC010 17x9 all around
Offset: +25mm
Tires: Achillies ATR Sport 235/45
Front wheels Spacers: 3mm (couldn't fit a CC between coilover and tire)
This picture was before I figured out my settings, I ended up dropping the car like 2 more inches, tires tuck just a bit, but feels grounded. also since I switched to this setup I have to put wood blocks or put the car at a 45 degree angle and send it, just to get in and out of my driveway(rear outside wheel hangs). I might have to raise it once I put the lip(doing the honda accord lip). Have a good one....

Nice setup! Any rubbing issues? I'm about to install some 17x9 chrome rims on my car, but I'm not sure if 1" or 2" drop is the best solution to reduce the wheel gap.

Rubbing will depend on the offset. High 20 Low 30 should fit a stock chassis just fine with a good alignment.

As for the drop for a decent "look" you'll be in the 2"+ range really. Drop springs on these cars don't do much and are WAY too soft for how little travel is left im the suspension after that.
