    looks like you should replace your rear shocks, bud.

    these pictures helped me reaffirm my choice to stick with 20s.

    Definitely, have already ordered the Sachs rear shock absorbers. Yeah the 20's IMO makes a much better look for it rather then the 22's.

    you are definitely keeping this car looking awesome. i loved the 22's and the drop but these 20's are absolutely beautiful, and the car definitely looks better staggered..keep up the good work

    I think the rim size wasn't the problem....it was those black 22's lol! The new 20's look better obviously..... but I still prefer 22's.

    Great wheel choice! what size and fit were the 22's you had on before? Did you have any rubbing issues?

    I guess i just have a good taste in wheels. There is nothing wrong with the 22s i had. I just wanted a different look. Honestly i think the black wheel look is getting played out. i went to 20s because i was not sure if a 22x10 would fit in the rear, since my car is already lowered.
