F*** it... 20" Calisto and H&R drop... Shall I?

I was at a wheel shop yesterday looking at the usual CSL rims etc...

When I saw the Calisto Cade's rims for the first time. 20" beauty's!!!



I need a drop too, and after how minimal the eibach spring drop is, I am going to go with H&R and shorter bump stops.

Shall I do it?

Just read a post on someone who runs 20s... The roads around me are ot great and I would hate to hit a huge pot hole at night on an unfamiliar road. I would be driving scared ALL THE TIME.

So I think I will just stick to some LM Reps



But I am going to try something new and have the face powder coated in the following RED and have the lip in chrome/mirror. I will leave the studs polished...




What do you think? Better choice?

I think it would look sick to be driving down the road looking like (sorry it's not a Bimmer)

This color screams teenager with hormonal disorder.

The first set is classy, but 20 is a tad too much in my opinion, it looks cartooney.

Maybe it does.

But it looks great to me. I am a young nut anyway... So I can pull it off over the usual copy cat old fart running safe with the usual gunmetal/black/silver LM reps

Have to try something different and push the boundaries.

Too worried wild.

The roads here are terrible in central London. Especially at night, I drive a lot of unfamiliar roads with massive potholes. 19s it will have to be. I am can't wait for the H&R drop though!

I just dropped mine and it was a extreme drop lol!! A bit more than my buddies...I used E36 bump-stops but added some Fk-stops (to much travel was causing rubbing) and a bit of trimming/modifying and no rubbing. Awesome handling and actually the ride is not bad. My rub was from my big ass shouldered PSS tires 235/35/19. Back was totally fine...had slight rubbing in the front but mine dropped about 1.75" in the fron and about the same a bit more in the back.
