Default NEW WHEELS ... what next?

After years of trolling and low balling I finally got a set of wheels. I went with TSW Jarama 18x8 +40. The fronts look fairly flush, but i think i can get some spacers to bring out the rears a little more. Just not sure what size. Does anyone know a shop in SAcramento, Ca that can help?

Yes there's so much still to be done, but I dont know what to do next. I didn't want to lose any of that luxury feel so I went with 18s but now it looks like I have a new pair of shoes with dirty laces (calipers). I'm thinking a set of coilovers next, but I was curious what set up will improve the stance and still keep her smooth.

So what you guys think?

lol at trolling and lowballing.

remember if you roll spacers, extend the lugs.

do it right or get done in.

if you do spacers, get the kind that are hub centric that bolt onto your hub using the existing lug studs and then have their own studs coming out.
