    hey guys...

    I lowered my car, with the eibach 1.6" 4 corner pro drop kit..

    its sittin on 20s now... looks good.. If I went to 22"s what would the handing be like, turning radius? overall fitment? and comfort?

    THanks guys...

    Can I see a pic of your car they way it is? I have the Pro kit also, and I'm trying to figure out if 20's would look good, or if I should go to 22's. I have a set of 20's that I REALLY like, and they don't make a 22 for that wheel. I'm just trying to see if I should find 22's.

    Turning radius won't really change..as you're not changing the overall diameter etc of the tire/wheel combo much. Some folks say the 22's make the ride a bit stiffer, but I didn't really notice a big difference, mostly because the my 22's are wider and ride over more potholes so it stayed about the same. Handling will change a little bit as will performance as the bigger the wheel, weight usually goes up as does rotational mass. It's not a huge power guzzler, but it's a difference that you can feel.

    I don't have a pic... its at the body shop still tuesday....

    I can tell you that it looks freakin killer lowered on 20's

    The only reason I thought 22's was b/c some dude I met was gettin his 300 repo'd and I needed new tires, he was sellin his combo cheap.

    at this point, lowered 1.6" on 20's is perfect.... especially with the 255/45/20 tire...
    22s would prob sit up in the wheel well.. after a day or so of thought.. I wouldn't do it...
    Stick with the 20's.. I'll see if I can sneak a pic on monday or tuesday for ya..

    if looks is your thing, go with the 22's, they fill the wheel well better

    Thanks!

    My stock 18's even look okay with it lowered which is why I thought that the 20's would be fine. Plus, I really like the style of this wheel I found, so I think I'll go witht he 20's. 45 series was what I was thinking about going with, as I live in MI, the roads are shitty, and I drive a lot for work.

    Thanks again for the info and coming pics!

    Def. go with the 22's. I just took off 24's, the rims in my sig, and had the pro-kit on. I'm back on 22's with the pro-kit and it sits really nice. Here's a couple pics with 22's and the pro-kit.

    There might be a little bit of rubbing if you hit a deep pothole or hit a dip while turning.....but that's on the fender lip. As far as the inside of the wheel well, there shouldn't be any rubbing really, as long as you get wheels that are between a +13 and +18 offset and between 9" and 10" wide. And make sure to get a 5X115 bolt pattern!!!!
