Most likely around spring time. The G wouldn't make it out of the driveway right now.

true that....that's how I was w/ my Volks. ....but that also brings you to your predicament....SELL THEM WHEEEEELS!

To be honestly, I want to see how low your eibachs drop you're front. Might completely change the look of your car

I m hoping the drop will help me be happy with the way the G stands for another year. This way I can change my set up next winter and just gift these to my bro. We ll see how it goes.

damn, that'd be a hell of a gift!

The only thing you may want to consider is smaller tires in the fronts. That'd lower it even more with the tire height.

Lemme know if you're interested, I bought some Toyo proxes4 (245/35/30) to replace my fronts w/ the negative camber wear before I decided to all out sell the wheels themselves.

spacers

Spacers are kind of a mystery to me. Any functional advantage or just for appearance. Also, very little info I could find for 18 stock wheels. Any suggestions? Thanks.

What do you mean by "functional"? As in performance? Obviously if stretch the wheels out wider, the wider they are, the better the handling. Spacers really aren't used for performance at all though because of the minimal amounts they physically move the wheels outward.

If you want performance handling wise, there's only one way to go and that's to lower the car. There are MANY routes to take for this, depending on what you're looking to do w/ the car, and what performance you want out it.

Info on the stock 18's...what type of info are you looking for?

I seen brands and hubcentric recommended - what would be a noticeable change and what are the practical limits? This will always be a lightly modded car - looking for subtle changes that improve the look.

It seems that many run anywhere between 15mm and 30mm on stock wheels, and that's after dropping their cars. Will you be lowering your car at all??
