Apex EC-7 and KW1 questions

So plan on pulling the trigger on the EC-7, 18x8.5 square set up, when the group buy opens up.

I am also planning on lowering the car when everything is installed this spring(nothing aggressive, just a nice non-4x4 look). I am thinking of going with the KW V1 coilovers.

Are there any issues with the V1's and these wheels with lowering? I don't see how there possibly is, but I also don't want thousands of dollars spent and not be able to use them.

I'd be interested in this as well, I already have the KW1s installed.
Would you share a link to the group buy?

According to David with the same setup (x-drive coupe with V1) we can go 18x9.0" ET31 squared without rolling fenders or adding negative camber. There could be an issue running r-compound tires v. street tires. Hope someone can chime in and confirm.

You can run either setup (8.5/9.0) just depends on the tire size.. I know 235 will fit with KW V1's.. I think you can get a 245 to fit.. Depending on the tire and spacers
