Lowering Question?

I have a 04 V6 sedan w/ 18 X 7.5 w/ 225-40-18ís

What springs would you suggest?

Iím leaning towards the Tien S-Tech 1.8F 1.3R, but Iím worried that might be too low, to rough ridding or possible rubbing?

First and foremost I am concerned about ride.

Second I a little gap incase I ever need to put cable chains on during the winter.

Your opinions and pictures are appreciated.



Jay

Newbie question here...

What is the advantage of coilovers over springs, beside the fact that they are adjustable? Cuz i figure if i plan to lower my car to a certain height and springs are cheaper, why not just go with the springs? I see so many people eagerly waiting for coilovers.
