Just be careful around any corners that have bumps when you're lowered and you'll be fine. I had to be moving relatively quickly with a decent bump at near full-lock to experience the rub.

When I placed 20mm up front as a test fit, I found that the wheels would rub under certain conditions anyways. So I think it worked out well.
Looks good, but I think I'll stay with my 15mm front and rear for now. The drop does make me a little jealous, damn you!

I was off for a walk today and a Sterling Grey sedan with SE Appearance Package (and the new-for-'13 smoked 17" wheels) pulled into my apartment complex. The thing looked SO hot with those wheels I stopped and stared at it as it crept by. The driver probably thought, "What the hell is THAT moron gawking at?"
