thanks for the quick reply, your car looks wicked, how low did you go with yours?? im thinking 1" to 2" drop. im staying standard bodykit and rear wing but want to change the wheels and exhaust because i love the lines of the car. its the best car ive owned

It's roughly 1.8" low but my shocks are shot now so I don't know if that's making a difference.
hi, the car looks great, is that 1.8" with the dropzone springs?

do you have any better side pics of your car, i did think about 19's but bought 18's. you got me wanting new wheels again.

19's will fit fine. But check further into the offsets and widths people are getting away with, thats the key. :tup:

guitardude1568, i saved a picture of your car because thats the way i want my car to look, i like the heavy modded cars but love the standard bodykits and rear wing, clean looks, nice exhaust and big wheels wins it for me.

guitardude1568, what e.t. did you use? and what width did you use on front and rear? and how far did you lower yours? i know questions, but i like to ask others how have done it to gather info. never have enough info :)

19's look great on an mx6 with a body kit or a lip kit and side skirts but I would never put them on a stock body. They will look very out of place.

tonkatim74- please edit your original post next time instead of double posting. I fixed it this time.

What is the offset on this ?????:confused:
Roughly +30 offset. Wheels are 19x9.

They fit but you need to roll the rear and run high spring rates to prevent rubbing. That and camber helps too.

So that means I should easily get away with 18's ???

... I haven't lowered yet, but was thinking 1.5 eventually. I don't want to have to creep over every speed bump and pot hole like a sailboat over rocks ... "oh god am I going to make it? *cringing*

Guy at tire/rim store said wouldn't recommend 18's b/c if I had more than one person in car they WILL rub ...?
