    hi

    i found this pic on the net and really like the set up but there was no info, i have 9.5j wheels and standard m sport suspension, my rims stick out just a bit to far for it to be lowerd...

    would i be right in thinkin the car in the pic are 9j wide? can any one estitmate how much i would have to drop my car in 9j wheels to have the same look?

    i really like the stance on both these cars... they both seem to have the same set up or am i wrong?

    Its not about how wide they are..it's about what offset they have...You can have trouble fitting 7J wheels if the offset is wrong....


    Both the cars in the pics may have the same set-up or they may just be slammed on coilovers ...Drop is dependant on which kit you get and if they're fully adjustable or not

    Speak with motechmike or extremewheels

    They are both forum vendors on here and have both sold the the replica of that wheel

    I'm guessing that's a coilover drop because that looks lower than a 60mm drop to me

    2nd pic wheels look like Racing Dynamics. Very nice twin blade, split rim. VERY expensive.
