As long as rims will be your next mod, you will be fine.

well put it this way, i have the veilside kit and im on factory 16s and i scrape. you can get over like speed bumps no prob and the only thing you will have to worry about is curbs and things like that. i always have to take curbs or inclined paveways at an extreme angle. i beileve i am 5 inches off the ground too on stock suspension. so i would suggest savin up for some rims b4 you paint the kit, trust me it will be worth it in the long run. i have my bumper soo scraped up in the front and on the sides they have scraped too. you get used to how low the car is and can scratch as little as possible, i hardly scratch anymore. but since i need to get my car into shows, i am now having to repaint my front and sides. which is expensive. so i would at least drive around on the 15s with the kit on unpainted to get the feel of how low it is, cause trust me its very low, then get it painted once you can get around with keeping the scraping to a minimum. but even with the kit being soo low its worth having it on the car, i get a ton of complements and it looks great. hope this helps thumbsup

i have half the veilside kit and 17's and i still feel like my car looks funny with the wheel gap... and it doesn't seem low enough for me either... but i'm not lowering my car until i can get air ride or something cause my body kit is molded and if i scrape it's gonna break...

does your car sit lower if you have 15's verses 17's? i figured tire size would make up for it... (mine are 205/40ZR17 so they're super thin) i want to get 18's... will that close the wheel gap a little better or should i just get the air ride first?
