yep, they're 215/45/17. It's a 2'' drop with Sprints and Toks. The pic was taken a couple of days after the car was lowered. Right now it's probably a 2.5'' drop. I don't want to discourage you or anything. If i had to do it again, i'd probably get 18'' wheels with an appropriate tire size. I'd also get Ground Controls, so that i'd be able to adjust the height in the winter, when the roads are extremely shitty. But then, they're also shitty in the summer. :(
The ride looks sick though :dunno:

205/45/16 on Sprints


215/45/17 on Sprints, and I believe the springs have settled some more since this picture was taken, it looks lower to me

With those tires, I felt everything on the road. Then, to make it look decent, I had to lower my car even more (thank goodness for ground control's). Scraped a bunch of times. Spedometer was pretty off. But as for the 17's, I think it's a good size. With 215/45's, doesn't look bad at all, but the lips on my rims make my rims look smaller. Other than that, I'm happy with them.

I have 215/45's and like them. They are almost exactly stock wheel size and have a good amount of tire so the ride doesn't feel like shit.

I have 00/01 Eibach's, so the front and rear are very even.

sprints will give you more of a drop and aren't as stiff as eibachs, but if you want performance then eibachs are definitely the way to go

I think 215/45/17 is something like .4% off from stock tire size. I did it on the tire calculator once, but don't remember the exact figure. It's minimal and disregardable whatever it is.
