Stock Rims With a Blitz Front Bumper?

I was browsing around on the site for info about the blitz front bumper since that's what im looking to buy, and it said that it doesnt recommend you get it if you still have your stock 15" or 16" rims.. why is this? Is it because it will ride too low to the ground in front? Or will the massive blitz bumper just totally dwarf the rims and make them look like wagon wheels? Just curious..

I had my stock rims on when i got my blitz kit put on..it was low.Probably around 3 inches from the ground maybe.But then i put the 18s on and i still scraped,so i lowered my car 2.25 in front and 2.5 in rear and its back to right about where it was with stock rims

if you put 18s on with 40 series tire profiles...it's only an inch higher thant he stock 16s with the stock 55 tire sidewall profile.
