    Have some wheel spacers handy, I have a feeling those are going to sink in.

    WOW

    I've never seen Minerva's in machined, they really look like crap.

    Honestly, I'd pull those wheels off until you get coilovers or bags. They look retarded at stock height, and they're just going to get nicked and chipped while you save for susp. What's the point?

    Definitely wait for coilvoers, springs are a waste of time/money, esp. if you're just trying to rock your wheels.

    IMHO, it's better to stay stock for a while longer then bust out *BANG* coilovers and wheels. Instead of wheels + monster truck height, then so-so dropped springs, then coilovers like a year later.

    That's what Pete did, and it turned out amazing.

    Besides, you're going to need money for spacers anyways, those won't be flush once you dump the car. And you might be able to find a place to chrome or polish those wheels while you're saving for coilovers, because they really don't look right machined.

    Good luck man.

    Lil harsh there sideways. The car will definitely look nicer with the drop the wheels imo dont look bad though even machined. Good luck which ever way you go.

    huh man ur mean:))
    um i can get adjustables in bout 3-4 weeks frm today,so i think i wont offend anyone with my ride height,
    btw i sold my old mags so cant jus take them off+ its my daily driver.
    i will get spacers whne i will lower my car,no point gettin them now.
    next thing i wont go THAT low that my wheels will flush in..nice max 3" drop wont get me massive camber...

    money arent a problem for me,ive got a job and i dont need to save up for months to make my car look nice,i just got other stuff to spend on...

    these mags are basicaly temporary,cuz i will go for some 19" in the future,mayb by the end of the year,gota talk to my suplier...
    so im not gna modify these mags in any way...and they look nice in silver finish,and i really HATE chrome mags...ive ogt nice psossitive feedback on my mags from my friends and some random people...if yoiu dont like them ok i dont really care

    Hey man, just do your thing. I guess everyone has their own style. But the important part is how your car will turn out in the end. NOT while it's still in progress.

    I don't think Sideways was being mean, I think he was just trying to give you some advice. But that's my opinion.


    Well good luck with your ride. I guess, show it off when it's complete!
