here is my 01 msm e-shift-0 matic i purchased last summer and its been rollin stock for a while...so i just picked up a decent set of HP racing evo hyper black 18x8 wheels wrapped in 224/40/18 .i just have a thing for mesh wheels. now all i need is a good drop and maybe add some spacers.it seems if i were to drop the car the wheels would almost be flush with the fender?im satisfied with the wheels may not have a super crazy off set or big O lip but its perfect to me. right now its sitting at stock height. anyone have suggestions lmk thanks enjoy my pics. im not that much of a camera person.

yea im working on that haha cant make up my mind on coilovers.:confused: haha also trying to find some good deals on here as well.
For a good entry level coilover i have been running D2 which i love. Granted its not a Tein FLEX or a Stance but for the money they are amazing. They are around a Tein Basic level.

I have the coilovers, i love the ride quality, everyday driving set to the softer side rides like stock, stiffen them up and throw it in a corner and it handles like a coilover.... which is great. I recommend them. But keep in mind they are an entry level so dont have all the bells and whistles like some of the higher end ones.

Wheels look good! I'd look into the headlight and fog painting mod. And you get what you pay for with coilovers.
