one thing ive learned from this thread is, KW Xi coilovers do not go very low. So does anyone have H&R Xi coilovers that could show how low those go?

Interested in seeing this too.

I hate kw v1 because I bottomed out sometimes hitting big dip just because the shock doesn't move anymore.

I noticed the V1 and the V3 are different in drop. Most V1 don't drop as low as mine does.......

I don't think the XI can tuck in the front due to our front axle.


Update on my new wheels.
19x8.5 225/35/19 +15 rub like hell in the front even though I only increase +5 offset compare to my old setup, its because I got a different brand of tires on it that run wider.
Took of the 20mm spacer for now so the car is drivable. Order 12mm so maybe will be on next week.

19x10 265/35/19 +22 fit like a glove in the back. Really really tight though and rub slightly when I tucked all the way, the fender rub on my actual wheels. Gonna shave the fender a little more tmr to prevent that 100%


Idk if this only me though, I raised the car in the front of a little bit over that but not the rear since I felt the car pointed down too much and it made the handling horrible.
If u compare fender gaps, the fronts are about half inch higher compare to the rears but of course, overall height, the car still pointed down like half an inch. I think it the best overall handling and height.

Your 10" +22 only fit because you have Toyo tires. Any other tire other than Toyo or Falken will be too square. I had 10" +20 in my rear just fine with FK452s.

19x9 +38 235/19 & 19x10 +36 265/19
Wrapped in DW conti extreme.

I would probably go with something like this...
I would run more aggressive, but I don't have any wheels to play around with and test.
Maybe I will add spacers later. I would get a lower offset.... Maybe I will. Hmm..

Maybe +35 front +32 rear.

Alright, I'll give it one more thought.
I am going to order new wheels in a week.
I am thinking....
19x9 +29 235/35/19 DWS
19x10 +25 265/30/19 DWS.

How's that?

I will be lowered on coils all the way.
I will have negative camber up to -1.5 OR LESS
I will roll the rear fenders a tiny bit.
I will have BBK.

Thoughts? I am avoiding rub and issues obviously. (otherwise I will go +32 front +29 rear).

I am trying to be conservative because I can't go higher offset, but can always get spacer if I can go more.

19x8.5 +22 225/35 -1 camber
19x10 +22 265/30 -2 camber
In the picture, the front was +30 offset so it is a little more flush now.

Awesome!

Do you have bump stops? What suspension are you on?
Toyo tires?

How do you think my 19x10 +29 236/35/19
will fit?

"Half" of a bump stop in order for me to go this low without bottoming out.
Falken tires which i found that run wider than my Toyo T1S before.

As of ur spec, it will fit just fine but it might look a little too little tires since it stretching.

It was +25 sorry. Not +29
Isn't stretching a new fad?
Don't people like the poke?
