When i bought my car all it had was some cheap lowering springs...And the car to this day rides realy rough... I am positive i have blown all the stock shocks, thats why I am about to put some aftermarket shocks (TOKICO ILLUMINA) on this week. Early this month I put 19" rims on my car and the guy at Kauffman tires explained it to me like this.... as long as the offset matches stock you can go as big as the wheelwell will hold. So basicly you can buy any aftermarket lowering-spring cheap, and shocks, that will coast you about 400-500 witch leaves you 1500-1600 for rims and tires... if you get 17" or 18" you can afford a tire package easy. I ordered my rims off Discounttiredirect.com and they sent me 4 lug rims instead of 5 lug. Besides that I got a good deal... First thing you should do is go find some rims you want, and go around to your local shops and see if you can get a deal from any of them.

Gooooooooood Luck

I have Tanabe and they really really good. I went to a meet at eibach and they actually took a new set of tein springs, messured them and then compressed them and then re-messured them and the spring lenght was all off. these are springs off their coil-overs. Tanabe held up and of course their own.

wouldn't lowering the car first give you a better idea of what size tire you can run, if you get rims that fill the wheel well then you'll probably rub when you lower the car

As long as the offset is close size wont matter. Rubbing is a issue when you get rims that are 8 inches wide tho.
