Finally pics of my Linea Corse Strasse

So Ive got quite a few pics here. I saved about 5lbs per corner going from the OEM 162's with RFTs to 19's with General Exclaims. Go figure. Ive got 235/35/19 up front and 275/30/19 in the rear. Ive experienced some rubbing in severe dips in the road but for normal bumps and things its been fantastic. The pics here show OEM weights front then rear and then the new wheel weights front and rear.

I know these posts can be kinda like a playboy magazine, you wanna skip the words and go straight to the pics. However, in the few lines I actually included up top in my post, I covered your question.

ZSP is a stock option, so Im in a quandry how to answer you. It is the ZSP without any suspension mods.

245 might have fit but all the recommendations I got were to go with 235 in the front and 265 in the rear. I went with the 275's in the rear because the 265's didnt look right, they looked stretched and I wasnt going for that look. The Generals are more of a squarish tire that are narrow for their size. I might have had less rubbing with the 265's but Ill take the minimal amount that I do get for the uber-hotness of the 275's. 245's might have fit up front but I had already ordered the 235's and they fit the wheel without any issues, I didnt want to push it.

Actually, the last pic was taken the day after I installed them. You can see the car settled a bit and the front doesnt look as spaced as the previous pics. Not sure Id want to push the fronts any more in case I was in the middle of a turn and hit a bump. Dont want to imagine what that would to do the fender. Not getting much understeer with the 235's at all either. One thing I did notice was the steering got just a tad more vague because of the wider tire. If you went to 245's I bet you would feel it more. I like my steering feel, Id like to keep it.

Really? This is my daily driver. I cant afford to go any lower. I think it looks pretty damn low for the stock suspension.

If you lived where we did you would realize this just isnt possible unless you like bottoming out everywhere. Even a set of coilovers would not let you sit much lower than stock without issues. I would luv to lower my car but I did it on a previous car and it was too much of a pain in the ass to really make it worth it. I am sure Alex feels the same way being he lives less than 15 miles from me. If I was in florida springs/coils would have been the first mod for me but being in NJ ruins all that fun.

Also I have seen his car in person and I was surprised how low it did look being that he has got 19's on the car. The front looks a little higher but it barely noticable an the rear sits just about perfect IMO.
