You need to clean the tires then shoot the pics. The dirty tires don't give the rims justice.

You ought to use adjustable coilovers when you lower it that way if you end up with rubbing on a hard bounce you'll be able to adjust properly. I used only springs and then when my wheels and tires went on months later I had a problem. I went with the coilovers and the problem is solved but I wasted $$ on the lowering springs. I'll look to sell them locally. My new rear wheels I didn't expect would come out to the edge of the fender. With the tires 315s I had a slight problem. The coilovers handle much better which makes it also worth the upgrade.
