just drop it like mines, no finger gaps all around, but you'll be scrapping your front lip over bumps/driveways & gonna have to tuck your fender liners cause gon rub wit the 50's... btw what happen to ur mudguards?

slam it:p rip the frame up lol actually jk if you want it to be fully functional and not have to worry about how you turn than FFs with a "almost" no finger gap is the way to go.

rim: 18 x 7.5 +45
tire: 215/45ZR -18



OEM idk the specs lol


my 18s are harder to slam then my oems bc of the offset

just to give you an idea of the looks, either way i rub scrape and bash my frame and lip almost every day. obviously you gotta re learn how to drive if your slammed hard but i love every minute of it especially when people just stare at it:p

drop it as low as ur driveway will allow if that'll give u piece of mind. that's what i did...and then i went slightly lower. :D i think i scrape more on the road than on my driveway.
