type R 20" polish

the front tyre scrub when i turn left or right, worse than before

its 45 offset
and didnt quite make it to get 20x 9.5 for rear,
so ended up same size 20x 8.5 front and back
as recommended

It looks to be lowered too much, particularly the rear IMO
I love the wheels BTW
I take it you dont have speed humps down under?

Love the rims but thats a bit too low, especially if you lived over here. You'd end up getting beached everytime you went through a built up area cos of all the speed bumps

Lovely ride, though I expect the rubber band tyres cost a fortune.

For me, I think 18s would be my limit. As others have mentioned, it's all speed bumps 'round my way.

It dont think its too low. I just think the wheels are too BIG!
19" could have done it for me...

thanks everyone,
the fact is

the rear, it still can be lower more without any problem, i dont do it because it will be look funny if the rear lowest than the front

the only main problem is that the front, the front plastic moulding sometime popped off

i never had problem with speed hump so far
but i am not sure if you guys from another country .. how high is the speed hump.

also this is not coilover, i used compressed spring
i am thinking to get front set only, if i have chance

au_ctr - i still got them, heheheh

It looks good but I wouldn't want to drive it in Poland or the UK. Speed bumps come to mind.

When he said "polish" I think he was refering to the brightness not driving on your roads.
