Yeah, both VirtualBong and I have spoken to the Tire Rack, and I also spoke to Eibach directly; they were saying end of May back in Feb/March, so it's possible that they may push it out a little more.

It looks like its going to be a nice setup, but both of us were too impatient to wait; I'm running Tein FLEX and VB has Neuspeed/Koni struts with Neuspeed springs.

This is ProKit:



This is Sportline:



As you can see, its not a huge difference, but the Sportline is a little lower.

Both of these cars are running smaller than stock diameter tires, which actually increases the wheelgap. Both of these cars would have less wheelgap with the factory tires; the Sportline car would even be a little tucked.....(upper car 225/40/18, lower car 225/45/17)

Oh crap, you are right; I typed that wrong.

Anyway, stock is 25.46", 225/45/17 is 24.97", and 225/40/18 is 25.09". And it varies a little bit from manufacturer to manufacturer...........

I edited it to be correct (I was surprised the edit button was still there-I thought it disappeared after 15 minutes or so.......)

Very nice wheel; super light and still strong......

Sportline is rated at 1.9" front, 1.6" rear.

ProKit is rated at 1.6" front, 1.4" rear.

225/45/17, because they are 1/2" smaller diameter than stock, are tucked with Sportlines.

I've got my FLEXes at 2" front, 1.7" rear, and with 225/45/17s I have a 1 finger gap all the way around.

When I had the stock tires (215/50/17) with 2.0" front/1.7"rear, I didn't really have gap-kinda tucked. I really couldn't stick my finger in there at all....



When I went to the slightly smaller 225/45/17s, I can easily stick 1 finger in.......
