My Ride: Shhh
Honestly... Your wheel is all the way up in your wheel well. All these "Stance" Guru's Love this kinda shit. Me personally I would rather shoot myself then drop my car that low...

I mean hey if op like it he can do whatever he wants. Its his car he's paying for it. To each his own.

The Style 44's would look 100x better if your car was about an inch higher.

Looks great! I really miss mine, thinking about putting them back on for a little while maybe with some bigger spacers than I had.

I have no problem with the car being that low.

But when I see a BMW with mismatched paint on doby panels, peeled off badge, dented sideskirts, poorly fitted panels and no center caps it makes me wanna puke right on that car.

Never understood those people.

+1 but your car looks great both ways. If you can go lower and you want to then why not?

I'm still running with my original 44's - almost 11 years.
When the tires wear out next time I believe I will go to 18' wheels on VMR710's
