AHH LOVING the wheels but I'm not there with ya on such high spring rates :/ Not many people realize that when you run such high spring rates, you end up losing grip rather than obtaining it. Sure the ride will be very stiff and you'll feel like you're handling better; which in a sense you definitely are for sure. BUT there needs to be happy medium between stiff and play. NO company that KNOWS suspension would recommend 18k spring rates because the springs are TOO stiff. 18k spring rate = over 1000lbs/in which not even people who TRACK their car use. (I could be mistaken about PROFESSIONAL racers but they are working with a combination of the best of the best products in which none of us can afford on a street car) But again I'm just strictly talking from a track/handling pov and of course MY personal opinion is all, not bashin you Khalil, just lookin out for your safety bro cause you might run the risk of ripping your strut tower or subframe with such high spring rates. Def don't want that to happen haha.

But the wheels are lookin great! Polish worked wonders!

For Non-M's you should run a lot lower rate, even for M's not many go this high...actually none haha.

Thanks a lot dude! And I completely get what you mean!

Thing is my shocks are built/valved accordingly with the spring rates, so it literally almost feels like stock suspension. The valving is also digressive alongside aggressive, you NEED to ride with me to believe me haha it's insanely comfortable and handling is so much better.
For the fitment it's going to have it needs these rates, maybe later I'll swap to 18k.
