Baby's Got a New Pair of (used) Shoes! Help me pick a stance!

7604 Views 45 Replies 26 Participants Last post by  b1gtime
'tis the season to don the summers, and thanks to Gary, TiNord has a beautiful new pair of shoes. Right now, I'm using a 10mm spacer up front and 15mm in the rear. The rims require a 5mm spacer to clear the calipers, and I'm feeling like the 10/15 combo is too much. Should I keep it as-is, or throw on the 5/10 combo?

Lower it. For some reason it is sitting high like a monster truck.
with those wheels it needs to be lowered
I agree. Lowered it'll look better. As it sits now I vote for the 5/10 combo because the rears doesn't look flush from the pics.

Neither does the front actually.
Re: (GiRaff3)

lol, yeah, the total diameter of the rim/tire is smaller than my 17's!

I have the springs, but don't want to put them on (as I have a feeling that US Bank will try to eff me when it comes time to negotiate the buyout...)
F the bank. What they gonna say? Swap them out if you don't want to keep the ride.
Dang you Athruc! me likes
Re: (juve021)

This is a leased vehicle? DO NOT LOWER IT!
Re: (T5 for Life)

For all intensive purposes, I was going to purchase the vehicle at the end of the lease, but seeing what's happening to resale prices and knowing what I'll owe, I don't want to put myself into that asinine of a financial position

I like the more aggressive stance from the spacers. Bringing it back in would hurt the aesthetics IMO.

Gotta lower!

Wheels http://********************/smile/emthup.gif
Too much ...they need to tuck in... but the whole lowering thing is a conundrum considering whether or not your buying the car...

Re: (Forced5)

I would go 5/10 to tuck the wheels in. Then you should sell me your 15 mm spacers.

Re: (Minn R)

Put a plow on it or lower it and get spacers. The monoblocks look better in 19's
there not monoblocks ..........
Re: (dectech1)

I am amazed at how repulsed I am by the way those rims stick out. I like the rims, but the wheels sticking out like that make it look like a cheap ghetto hooptie. Less is more! Nice looking rims though. http://********************/smile/emthup.gif

Adam, they look good dude!

As most of the peanut gallery has stated, the car needs to be lowered and the spacers need to be reduced. Other than that, http://********************/smile/emthup.gif
