Pics of 1.5" drop front and back with 18" rims

Hi, I am relatively new to the forum. I just purchased a pair of 18" rims. The wheel gap is more pronounced now that I put them on so I want to lower my car. I want to see what a 1.5 inch drop on the front and back would look like on a pair of 18 inch rims. Anybody have any pictures?

Thanks!!!!!

P.S. I own a red 1999 V6 Accord Coupe

Thanks for all the replies. I agree that 1.5" might not be enough of a drop. I am trying to find the perfect drop height in which I could avoid getting significant negative camber. Low profile tires aren't cheap as all of you know.

I needed new tires for my old rims, as I was on the lookout for new tires I ran into a deal I couldn't pass up on 18's with good tread. I would have spent the same amount of money buying new tires for my old 16" rims than what i spent on the 18" rims. AND I turned around and sold the old 16" rims.... in the end I upgraded from baldy 16" rims to mint 18" rims for a mere $150.

So on that note, I want to ask something to the people that had the 1.5" drop. Were you experiencing any abnormal tire wear after your drop? Did you install a camber kit?

all you need is an alignment. 1.5 inch drop doesn't put you past -1 degree even usually, just get an alignment, nothing else needed to get good mileage out of your tires other than keepin up on air pressure

I'm on Tein S-Techs which give you a bit more than 1.5". Camber isn't a problem, all you would need is an alignment (which I didn't do lol). I would like to drop it a bit more and have spotted some F2 Coilovers going for $500. Too bad I already gave myself a DSLR as a present for Christmas...





Anyway, here's some pictures. These pics were taken before the springs have settled. The car sits a bit lower now although it's back on stockies for the winter.

Always drop the car before wheels...

Too late now though.
