Exactly, I am! haha. Look at Gino's blue e46 that was posted. He's on 18"s and tucking all his tire! I'm not as low as I could be, which is why I"m going back to 18"s and getting shorter springs. I want aired-out bag height without having bags.

A local guy is already getting them. They're actually in pretty bad condition and he's paying too much for them. haha. I told him exactly how they are, and he said he didn't care. Not my problem. :p

Eh, it was the low angle of that pic. I'd say your front is as low as mine was then. I was trying to show how low the bumper was too the ground (bad photo choice though). I know what you meant by "retarded slammed", but I think you can still get pretty close to being just as low as someone on 18s, with 19s. You can't do it with a flush/poking fitment but otherwise it could still be done...

Two photos to kinda compare the difference:

19s (I still had a decent amount more to go with the front coils here.)


18s (Now, it's maxed out on the front coils.)


The lenses/distance/angles were different for those shots and of course the coils are actually lower now than they were then so it's not completely accurate, but you can see it's not tooo much lower.

We had a huge cruise yesterday, and a ton of pics were taken, but only one person has put them up so far. These will be the last shots of my car with the style 95s.

Edit: Oh, and don't laugh at my amber sidemarkers. I changed my corners out before we started the cruise and completely forgot about the sidemarkers. lolol.

Exactly.

EDIT:
Well, that was in response to Snik, but it worked fine for you, too, Dan. lol. and since we're in the Aggressive Wheel thread (I honestly just now noticed the typo in the thread title) all my posts are assumed to be with poking/flush fitments. lol.

@Dan, someone can be really low with 19's as 18's easily. Why not just run a 30 series tire & stretch, it'll give you the same ground clearance as the 18's would on a 35 and the 19's would probably tuck better. If I could go back to 19s I would

Running 30s is dangerous with how stretched most us like our tires. D:

I wouldn't do a 30 unless it were like a 265 tire.

If VMR V710s came in 17x9.5, I'd have jumped on them.

i just think 19's are too big. 18's are pushing it but can look good. i just have never been a fan of large diameter wheels. 17's is the perfect size in my eyes for e46 fenders
