Niice. How does it drive?? I want to get some wheels & lowering springs but I'm afraid the ride quality will be affected.

Ya its much harsher, the 18" have lo pros so are much stiffer, steeda springs are linear so they are really stiff and plus i have front and rear sway bars. So its a pretty harsh ride, But the car is solid, its is super stiff and tight in the corner the handling is insanely good. I personalty love it, but i done mind if its harsh! If you live in that area you can check it out sometime.

I have an ST3 & the suspension & handling on it is Grade A. I went down Hwy 178 towards Sequioa, if you haven't been the curves there are hella tight. That's why I don't want to change anything & sacrafice the ride quality.

Ya i have a mk3 sport and the set up i have now its so solid, and much sportier. The original set up was really good to, but its so much better now. You should already have 18" on your car so changing to sparcos wont make much of a difference. I dont know the measurements of the ST wheels, but the sparcos are 18X8.

Yeah, they are 18's, but I'm thinking of going to a smaller size, cause the turn radius with 18's is horrible. I was looking at the Sparco wheels, but I want something a little more aggressive

Well sparcos come in 17'', but your car will look way less aggressive with 17", Imho if you get some 16'' gravel rally wheels, and some nice Dmack tires! Would definitly be original with everyone tracking their St's.
