That front bumper looks waaaaaaaaay better when it's that close to the ground. I always thought it was so ugly until people started rocking it with nice wheels and a drop. Looks good man

I was finally able to purchase a set of wheels I've wanted forever! They're "Gotti G1001s" in 17x9.5. My buddy and I picked them up Sunday and refinished them yesterday and today, all that is left is to do the bolts/ polish the back of the lips/ paint the windows/ and assemble and seal them! Tires should be done by Friday and them time for a test for with 15mm spacers while I wait for my 45mm ones!

Nice job on the refinishing! Those should look pretty sweet on your car.

OP you should fix the dents in your hood. Also real question: how do you drive with it that low? seems pretty stupid

That's the next step after wheels, I drive without a problem. I'm not going to lie I scraped alot but I never got stuck anywhere. Now that I have bags it makes things like speedbumps and dips so much easier to get over.

So here is a quick test fit with 15mm spacers I did, they fit but I don't like the actual fitment so I'm buying adapters off of my buddy! Should be on sometime soon!

Those look amazing. Really well done! What size adapters did you end up having to go with? What will your final specs be?

I'm buying a buddy's wich are 38mm and 46mm, so the effective offsets end up being et18 up front and et10 in the rear.

You should have them rebarreled and throw some big step lips on them.
