Woohoo.....I've been waiting to see how your 19's fit at the lowered ride height. Any chance you could give us a measurement for the amount of drop when it's all said and done? I'm planning a similar setup and you are my guinea pig.

What are your thoughts about the Falken's? I can't find a good review for them - sure wish Tire Rack carried them since their reviews and surveys are super helpful.

Your 265's don't appear to be stretched at all on your 10.5's (from what I can tell from the current pics). I'm surprised, but happy, because I hate the look of stretched tires.

haha thanks man. Yea this set up i didn't want to do stretch either. depends brand of tire these falkens don't strech which is good . the ride is very nice much quieter than my stocks . i also think the offsets are perfect seen people here buying lower offsets. i don't want to pull the rear fender out at all so i am happy can't wait to install , and i will measure form the floor to fender before and after

Looks great and even better.....no rubbing and not much stretch on the tires. I think 19's are by far the best option for the 3is.

Any idea yet on how much you dropped it? Did you do any camber adjustment in the rear?

The wheels look really good! I like how they match the color of the car. If it were me, I'd raise the rear about half or a quarter of an inch and add 10mm spacers all around. I think generally cars tend to look more aggressive when they have a raked setup (rear a bit higher than front). Depends on what you're going for of course. Also, and I could be wrong, but the car gets more downforce too when it's slanted. And another detail, when you sit in the car, the rear is always softer so it actually rides even lower than normal which makes it look like the car is squatting, especially when accelerating. Just my opinion though, the car already looks great as is.

What I did on mine for the front was: I removed the liner clips on top (2 on each side), also cut the liner near the front where it rubbed, bent/rolled straight edges in areas where they aren't rolled (one of the wheels actually caught it and bent the fender a bit), and I tucked the liner on the inside of the fender vs. it sitting on it with the clips like before, and flattened the fender inner lip edge even more so it acts as a clip for the liner. That fixed all the rubbing for the front! Now i have to deal with the rear...But not till i get new wheels
