I was checking fitment, lowered a bit more and aligned and it should be perfectly flushed out. I have about a finger thickness between the backside lip and shock and knuckle... amazed that some guys run the same widths with offsets in and around the teens... So much wasted space on the inside on those setups!
What gives me shivers is seeing wood blocks under a car...only because it is an association from the aftermath of wheels getting jacked from a car and the thieves leave the wood blocks under the frame.
With our paint Shmee wheel color is more limited, imo. Honestly, I think painting the centers to match the silver would look nice. Chrome always looks decent but they stand out more with darker color LS's.
i understand about folks running single digit offsets and their wasted space on the inside of the wheel wells. i'm happy of your wheel choice, and glad they cleared the calipers. when you go with the air setup, i am predicting you will want something more aggressive, but that can be achieved by the simple use of spacers! looking good man!
FedEx just made my day!
Purchased some Ordens from Hawaii back in January which were damaged in shipping. After 2 months of emails, pictures, documentation going back and forth, they finally approved my claim!! I'm being compensated 100% for the damage! So once I get my wheels back from the refinisher, I'll be ballin' hard all summer long!
Moral of the story, ALWAYS pay for the insurance!
If I didn't buy from a reputable seller who made sure they were insured, I'd probably be out an additional $2k on top of the $2500 I paid for them originally!
the ordens definitely look better now. car looks a lot better, although i personally would lower it more.
Also, i have the same headlights and i hate them because to me, their cut off line is horrible. The light output is the same as stock, if not less, even with HIDs. I had to install HIDs in the fogs and always keep the fogs on just to be able to see a decent amount in front of me. I dont know about you, but i'm planning to do a projector retrofit on mine. My previous car (sc300) had projectors and i just cant deal without them.
