Yeah the plate is sick. I lowered the back like 1.5 inches. So it's level now.

Just a trial run. Cause if I don't like um I have to order other wheels and tires. But if I like um I'll just order tires for um.

I hear you. They just look to big. You 19s look good but I think bc of my body lines and stuff the wheels look funny. I def like the stance tho. Just give me ur honest opinions guys!!!!

I don't think the wheels themselves look too big, the design of them is just kind of meh. The might look better with smaller tires.

It's hard to say, the wheels look pretty decent, and would look a lot better with proper sized tires..

They look better than I expected but IMO you really should paint them and possibly ditch the center caps. That little chrome on the lip is killing me

Well the center caps are different. They cover the lugs which is a bad look IMO. I am stuck on 15s or 16s now lol. More tire options with the 205/50R15 than the 205/45R16.

So I put the mud flaps on a bit ago and put on the front lip. The lip needs some patch work now that I've been driving with it. Just thought I'd update alittle. Oh and I also added mk3 door handles!
