    Eibach lowering kit with wheel appearance package

    Hi everyone,

    I bought the 18" wheels from the wheel appearance package on the '06 models.

    The stock tires for these are 225/50/R18.

    From all the searching I've done on this forum, this wheel has one of the the largest overall diameters of any wheel for our cars at 26.9".

    Even most people with 20's have a smaller overall diameter because of the tires they have on.

    I know at least one member who lowered his with the 18" sport wheels but his tires were smaller than mine.

    Can anybody tell me if I will be able to lower my car with eibach's with these wheels / tires? Has anybody with the wheel appearance package lowered their car?

    i have 245/35/20 lowered on eibach(upsized from the recomended 30 series), so the difference between my set up and yours is 0.1 inch larger overall diameter. your diameter is 26.85" and mine is 26.75"
    but my set up is about 3/4 of an inch wider and i have no problems, so i figure you'll be more than fine.
