thinking about retiring my 17's for GTS 16's
What do you guys think? should I stick with my custom painted 17's and get a Tein S tech 1.4in drop or downsize to stock gts 16's and an Eibach sportline drop which is about 2in? heres a pic of my car

Why would you want to go smaller. I think you should retire you 17's for 18's, and then buy a kit wink

Don't go backwards! Otherwise next you'll be like ... "lemme take my Injen SRI out and put my stock box back in!" tongue

Just get the TEIN and it will look tight! thumbsup

Some people may downsize if they think 17" give too harsh of a ride and want more sidewall to cusion the ride. Also, if you live where the streets are horrble, 17's are easier to scratch/bend from curbs and potholes. =P

I'd stick w/ the 17's and don't go any higher. Riding on rubber bands doesn't look too good. grin
