How does the car ride with 22's and lowpro tires?

I'm not 100% sure that they are 42mm offset. These are RWD offset wheels so, Lexani machined them down so that they would be the correct offset. THe car rides great. I actually think it rides better than it did with the crappy factory michelins.

Great looking ride. We've got terrible roads here in Wisconsin. I'd be concerned about breaking a wheel.

With Magnaride, my ride is already firm.

Enjoy!

Just got the grill and marker lights painted to match. I will post updated pics when it stops snowing and I get a chance to wash the car.

Add one more thing and it would really look even better for about 50.00 bucks off ebay add the chrome door handles very simple, but it makes the car seem more luxurious just try them and see.

Not too much blacked out there.

Blacked out would be the headlights, tails, forgs/signals, and 3rd brakelight...... or at least some of them.

car looks good. we have the same color scheme almost. I think it rides better with the 22's to. I have 22x9 +34. Have you thought about lowering it. I should be doing mine next week. Hopefully all goes well. The intrax are supposed to be 1.6 settled, but for some reason, they are not getting any lowering springs out, maybe they are hurting over there. Anyway, the rim shop guy talked to D3, and they are sending out some, should be here by Monday. They told him, that the ones they have are 2.1f and 2.3r settled...ha, we will see how that works out.

Thanks for the feedback. I don't want to go overboard with painting and tinting things black. to get rid of the rest of the red I think I'm going to switch out the taillights for the clear/ smoked ones. Then swap out the spoiler for a V series one and tint the reverse lights to complete the look. I thought about lowering it, but every time I look for springs they are out of stock. STS_0423 please post pics of your car once its lowered along with feedback on the ride and if its rubs. My tire/ wheel setup is already a tight fit b/c of width. I don't want to have to deal with rubbing if I lower it.

I will let you know...stay tuned i should have updated pics by Tuesday or so. We have the same exact wheel/tire setup, other than the offset, so if it works for me, it should work for you also.
