this also has a lot to do with the tires sidewall..not just the rim size. for instance the stock tire is is 205/55/16 and obviously this leaves a big gap. but if i were to increase the sidewall to let's say 205/65/16...i would pretty much have my tires near the fender (not that you would want to do that..but you could).

as i already mentioned..most of the pics i posted used a 40 sidewall for their tires (such as 215/40/18) and it looks like they accomplish what you want to do for the most part thumbsup

i've seen celicas with 19s with a 35 series profile that pretty much did the same think, btw spineyes

^^ my thoughts exactly

...but i thought it was important to include it bc i dont know if the user who madet this post has a body kit already or even intends to get one in the future...so its good to see how low the TRD springs will drop your car without a body kit thumbsup

Hey thanks for the pics yeah i'm getting a kam front bumper and RMM side skirts. Would you suggest the TRD spring or maybe there is a nicer drop that looks nice with 18's?

kam front & rear with rmm sides is tasty...thats my favorite non-widebody combination thumbsup thumbsup

the TRD springs will work good for that combo...i also like the tein s-techs (1.5" all around). tein is an awesome company that makes some great, reliable springs...not to mention they usually cost much less than other brand-name springs (such as TRD, eibach, & hks)

anyway: kam & rmm tasty
