very nice looking car...the gen 2 has big wheel arches so u will never really be able to make it super low without having problems like scraping...but if u want it to LOOK lower, just get 18" wheels to fill in the gap hehe

Great wheels. Good choice.

PS, those are 18"s

They are 18x8's.. once the camber has been adjusted it might give it the impression that the tyre is closer to the guard, seeing as it will be on less of an angle...if you know what I mean.

I do plan to go lower, I want to see how rough the ride is once the new shocks are in.

Same colour and model as my car :) Get some Meguairs tyre black onto those tyres to complete it. Nice mags! Still undecided if they suit the car, I guess it would grow on you after a while :) Wheel arches on 2nd gens are a bitch, I've resigned to to 16" wheels and stock height for now ;)

Nice choice....looks great :tup:

And I reckon that's low enough....looks the goods without scrapping everywhere!

oh they are 18's..sorry duckers...looked like 17's to me hehe but they still look great...but u REALLY need to paint the calipers, it looks kind of empty since the spokes are thin hehe...go down to supercheap auto and buy 1 or 2 bottles of the stuff $15 each bottle

i saw those mags at tempe tyres(sydney)...they are a relatively new range...

perhaps if you lowered it another 1/4 of an inch it would be perfect(also without it scraping) ;)

good luck duck :p

Them also osme in a nice smoked verison real nice look good on a silver car, but i'm sure the smoked ones are a little different in style.

I can't tell form picutre are they to smooth striagh alloy polish or the light gold tin.

I'm pretty please with them, and please with the price too. I'm not too sure about painting the calipers though.

If only it was half an inch lower :)

Anyone know where I can get clear side blinkers??

Very nice.

Bob Jane actually painted my calipers without me even asking which was good.

I also would be interested in knowing where you can get clear side blinkers.
