I personally think you can't really drop enough. The only reason I didn't do H&R ss is because they ride hard so I'm in sporlines which was the second largest drop I could find.

I mean im riding on 18/50/45, my front will be 255/35/20 with the new wheel/tires im putting but im scared it will drop even more without even doing the suspension, with 20s should the ride go up or down?

I wanted the CF10's but they only had one front wheel.

I wanted to save some wight and the 20' plus larger tire would not help. My stock wheel&tire are 59Lb. I will post the weight of these when I get by the end of the week. That's 236Lb, I hope these new wheels will shave some of that weight down.
I don't know if you like the Vossens graphite,but I could have got you a decent deal on them.The Wheels and Tires did not have 500 miles on them.The rear was 10.5 with a 305 drag radial (Nitto's). I told you about them some last night. Anyway sounds like you got some nice stuff on the way man.Post up pics!

If he has them you are looking at 2700.00 roughly.Now thats with new Nitto's all around as wheel. 555 and the 305 is the 555r.
Man I still need to ring you out on a weekend.Right here at my desk I got your number still. PMing ya now to be sure its right.
I had a little extra time this afternoon and went ahead and put on my rear koni's. Now I just got to get some extra to do the fronts. I would perfer it be soon rather than later.Hell they been laying at my foot since 12-22-12. Disappointed in my motivation today.While I had my car on jack stands I wanted to pull my da*n near new J&M PH bar and put on my new BMR laying here,Plus I wanted to pull the stock brace above it and replace with the BMR one I have. I just said I do it later. I was doing this outside and it was not 75 out there so I was ready to just get it over with.
I personally would like to have those Vossens myself.I figured it would require relocation brackets on the sway but he said he did not need them. Not that it's a big deal if it did.Not even pricey to take care of that.

I believe you wont need it, im getting some under a sponsorship deal for 800 plus w.e tires i want, im thinking about going
255/35/20
275/40/20
Or
295/35/20
Or maybe even
295/40/20
But that might rub

The pic on the lower left is older, and you can see that there is more air space above the rear tire, this is prior to the suspension settling.
Ride has really not suffered much either.
I just put a set of the same tire and wheel package on my 13 Brembo

Thanks for the help man, The 19" F14's were shipped out today.

I think I will be happy, I went with the 19", My main gold was to save weight with every mod I do to the car, and I think the F14's are going to help with that. I got side track by the 20" wheels. LOL. I should have them by this weekend. I will post some pic's.

1.5" on the back. I'm not sure how much on the front, I think around 1.5". One thing is for sure is I'm going to have to come up at least 1/4" on the front.

UPS tracking is up. My wheels will be here Friday.

I'm getting excited, might just have to take Friday off from work as I don't think I want almost $3000 in wheels sitting in front of my house while I'm at work all day!!

Yeah u noticed that your grill was a v6, and i had read before that 5.0 in canada dont have fogs....you guys should have a unique grill, instead of the downgrade of a v6

Sounds good, according to 1010calculator your rear tires are 28.68 inches in diameter, you think you would be able to fit a 29.25 inch tire? Since im doing a 1 inch drop only i believe it fits.

Sorry, I'm not 100% sure it would fit. I'm sure most people on here would recommend running a smaller wheel/ tire package than what I did. Sorry not much help on this one
