Pics of my new rim & drop

Here is few pic of my new wheel I just put on and also with tanabe lowering springs. It's Motegi MR7 18" in gunmetal with Toyo Proxy4 tires. I love Tanabe's drop. It drop 2" in all four corners and with 225/40 tires it leaves about a 1 finger gap between tire and fender.

I'm in way down in WA Vancouver. Did not install the spring on my own. Too lazy but friend of mine has tuning shop so he did it for me. Front ones are pretty easy but rear one are little more tricky due to plastic panel you have to take out from your trunk to have access to your strut.

Nice. I got a question if they they say the springs drop the car say 1.4 in. can you have them do it just 1.1 or so or must they do it 1.4? also is your ride real ruff? my dads been warning me about droping my car casue he said it will drive ruff. w/my rims and tires it deffentinaly drives ruffer than normal. but i got 205s.

thanks for all the good feedback on my car. the ride is not that bad at all. I'm using stock shocks right now. Wanted to get some KYB but don't make one for 03 yet. Ride gotten little hard but nothing I can't stand. The car is about good 4" off the ground. So far I have no problem getting around like driveways and bumps. I'm being really careful. I thought about going with 35 series tires but those were too thin and where I am, roads aren't that great so 40's work for me. Again thanks for all the good responses. grin
