Ok lowered guys. Should I be ok with 18" x 8" 40offset wheels on a Steeda 1" drop or .8" drop from either Ford Racing or eibach? Not looking to go lower than 1". If I will have rubbing issues I won't drop it. Looking for opinions on that matter with the new wheels.

Ok, so he us running an 18" x 8" wheel with a 55 offset plus the spacer so 35 total, and a .8" drop. Nice. So I will be safe. Good to know. Thanks.

Technically Dyno has 15mm in the front and 20mm in the rear, IIRC. He says the rear is close, but no issues.

I will have to post pics with my stock 16's on my SE Sedan. The sportlines are amazing with 0 wheel well gap, and i still clear curbs when parking. It handles like its on rails. I have always been a fan of sportlines. I will post pics after work.
