Damn. got a vibration in the car now. Probably an unbalanced front wheel.

I was also told that it could be a lug nut too tight. Not buying that one. Gotta go back in the morning. Ugh.......................

But at least I'll look good while I shake.

PQ retorque your wheelnuts as they should be redone after 50 miles on any alloy wheel. and eliminate that possability.
Most people don't and I've seen quite a few that do come loose.

Those wheels and tires fit perfectly! I thought it was impossible to put 315 tires on a lowered car! Your wheel salesperson must know their stuff

Congrats on the new rollers. Car looks stunning now. Factory wheels suck!

PQ:
What size are those wheels? I know they are 22", but what width and which tires did you get? I love the look of those wide rear tires.

You have the same drop springs I have. Did you have to do anything special to avoid the tires from rubbing? Are there any problems with that? I may do something similar.

Rears are 22x10.5 with 315/25 tires.
Fronts are 22x9.5 with 265/30 tires.

You will need to order themwith the proper offsets for them to fit right. Preferably from Nine Ball. He handled it all for me.

Other than that, no fitment problems.

And apparently the right lug nuts too!
