They were £660 plus £280 for the tyres so theres only dust left in my wallet,
Worth every penny for the aggresive look my cars got now.
i was really surprised at the huge diffrence in weight from the standard 16" wheels

Very nice! Ever thought of getting it lowered? Would really set the car off nice if you got some new springs.

TBH ive no plans to lower it. the roads are really bad where i live, littered with potholes and speedbumps. i dont really want a bone rattling drive.
i thought it would have been rough with the low profile tyres but it seems to be just the same as the super profiles on the 16's. although theres alot less body roll and the car handles alot better now

If you fit Eibachs, your car (although lower), will actually cope with bumps and holes a lot better than before, believe it or not - and handling and ride are much better afterwards ...

Ok so after a couple weeks with my new wheels ive decided the car definatly needs lowered. My question is do i just need to buy springs? Then find a garage to fit them.

Found these on ebay
