wheel gap
i have my car lowered with tein springs (1.5 inches lowered all around) with 215/35/18 tires. I can stick 3 fingers in the wheel gap. just wondering how much other ppl have there's lowered.

i was thinking bout lowering it another inch or half an inch but i don't know yet. also, i don't want to loose any driveability, bottom out, or have to change new struts every so often.

give some time for the springs to settle if you just recently installed the springs...but imo it should look good...if you do wanna drop lower go with eibach sportlines

I have Eibach Sportlines .
So I have 1 finger gap in the rear (2.4" Drop)and 1.5 fingers in the front (1.8" Drop)...
P.S. I have 15" stock rims, but it would be the same gap with 17" rims and low profile tires.
