    pics request - dropped coupes on 17's

    another one for the list of probs - my front coilovers are seized and corroded, and i can no longer adjust the height of them (without considerable force and risk), so am looking into a new setup at the front.
    Im considering the cheaper option of fixed height shocks/springs but need a specific gap between wheel and arch.

    so if you could post a pic, and just state the drop (named shock/spring setup a bonus), that would be great!
    tyre profile would also be handy.

    cheers

    lurrrrvvvlllyy, that is what my coilovers are set at now (roughly). the new wheels i have dont have an ideal offset and i get rubbing though . so need to go up up up unfortunately.

    Oh the fronts rub like a bitch on full lock, my bumper takes a hammering everyday and I can't go in multi-storey car parks or steep slopes. Looks cool though

    haha, yea, know what you mean. style over practicality everyday of the week huh. Mine rubs and the wheels slap the arch over the poxy speed bumps all around my area, and it rubs on full lock like a bitch too, often. and thats with just me in the car, what the hell would it be like with a car full??? or is yours a newly declared 1 seater these days

    i like how yours sits d_ghedia, v nice coupe overall actually, hmm.
