Hey leh0825:

I'm in Idaho Falls. Are you anywhere nearby? I'm looking for a set of OEM 16" so if you decide to sell the stockers give my a rap.

Adios, David

Yeah a drop does look sexier on a car but ride quality goes out the door when you do it to low. Handling can be crisper if you go with a good set of wheels and a moderate drop. Some people that drop their cars way to far have issues with rubbing the fender wells and require a lip tuck. I have the SVT suspension which is only .5" drop and 215/45/17 tires and it handles great and still has a nice ride height to it and I am not having to worry about bottoming out or rubbing issues. General rule of thumb is to have the distance from the fender bottom to the top of the tire the same as the height of the tire itself so you don't have that baja look or the "Oh god it's going to rub" look to it.
