It will look alot better than now! Drop first, then get rims.

hmmm.... i donno... i've always had the money to drop my car, but i wouldnt have the money to get rims, so that was holding me off for a while. if you drop your car, your stock rims will look really small on your car that it'll look funny. i say you wait until u have to funds to do both at the same time.

Got them HERE at MOREPOWERRACING (took a few hours of research to find these guys at this price.. prolly the best price out there.

1264 no tax (for CA) + free shipping (there is a small handling fee)

The ride is Awesome. YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR!!!

IMHO - Honestly ... it is equal to or better than STOCK.
