Here it is as promised, done at a professional shop. rims/tires setup is 20x11+15 275/35/20 100 percent rubs on the plastic lining at full turn, will shave it down with sand paper to stop. will most likely lower the car in the future as gap is pretty big but i heard you arent supposed to drop AWD cars so im not sure.

Not totally my thing but I always applaud anyone who goes outside the norm. Thumbs up to you. Looks like good body work!

I think you should kill the door handle chrome.

I forgot the chrome existed there, will definitely black it out and have the roof done black also.

I think I'd prefer black or body colored fasteners. The silver colored ones stand out too much unless that's the look you're going for. Definitely an interesting kit.

I agree, I think black hardware and black on the door handles would look awesome, either way props to you for doing this!

Not dopest Q, it’s a personal page with my life & cars so I don’t really plan on sharing it!

That’s exactly what i was looking for, stand out and a bit aggressive with the rubber lining.

have you considered running 295 on those 11" wheels...or even 305 with more offset?

you went through a lot just to fit 275.

Looks great! You should be able to lower an inch or so with no issues. AWD system is worried about the tire diameters, not the ride height. The CV axles would be the concern, but as long as your not going crazy with it you shouldn't have an issue.

wont fit, if i wanted to, it will rub on the rubber linings sadly. and gets too close to the the top of the wheel well as it is right now.

edit: it rubs as is on full turns very slightly and hits the top of the wheel well if i hit a really really bad pothole which is super common in nyc

edit two: im going to remove the plastic lining and try to fit 305's with my next set of tires.... in like 2 years haha. i only drive less than 1k a month so itll be a minute till i wear them out

i plan to!, i just dont know what coilovers i should get that are more comfortable than the current ones, i like driving in style less than cutting around when im driving by myself.

i think i will, i have to go back to finish cutting the old fenders behind, they wouldnt do it until the got the rims to measure, at that point ill ask them to do a black roof paintjob and the rivets!

What happened to your position in post #6 about silver fasteners? I thought you wanted that look? Did you succumb to peer pressure here?
