Installed new wheels

I was really hoping to not have to mess with the suspension, but that wheel gap is bothering me.

Incredible how 20in can look "small" on modern car... I'm on 18in, and given our shitty road, definitely not lowering anything...

I can't speak to the ride quality at stock height with coil overs. I installed mine to achieve a lower stance which of course stiffens the suspension and gain heavy down force. It all depends on the look/ride/handling equation you are going for. I was willing to give up a soft ride for a dropped look that can also take sharp turn at high speed.

Finally got around to getting my car lowered. Installed H&R springs yesterday and really happy with the outcome. The ride is definitely a bit stiffer now but I like it.
