Eibach pro kit 1.5 drop w/ 18"

Does anyone have this setup??

Im trying to get wheels for this coming summer. 17 inch seems reasonable but I wanted to try w/ 18 inch. Since my car is lowered want to know if anyone has that kind of steup on their ride.

If you do have 18's, what is your exact size in wheels.....

Thanks....Peace.

goooo 17s!

18s offer a crappy ride and they'll just slow you down.

I used to have 18"s with the same kit, no rubbing whatsoever, just the ride is harsh. You need 18"x7.5" rims.

Hey how do you guys feel about gunmetal rims with the machined lip on a black ZX3??

Can't decide if its better than to go with regular silver.......

I'm a big fan of gunmetal with the machine lip........I have a set on my car, although my car isn't black, it's the dark green color.

Actually, I am pretty satisfied with the set-up and looks. Still does have a little gap, but with 17" it will be OK. Roads in Nothern VA are quit ruff so anything below, being an everyday driver, would have some problems.

Ill post pics soon though.....

Peace.....
Is that Newport News thing gonna happen or what??
