Default Genesis rims on my Starfire Pearl IS250 AWD!

Hey everyone! I finally got my rims put on and car dropped on BC coils! I've done little mods here and there but, nothing major until now. I would like to thank dubsesd and fknISC808 for guiding me in the right direction. Sorry for the camera phone quality picture. I need to give her a good wash anyways, so I guess the poor quality helps... More pictures after a good wash and when the sun comes out.


P.S. I know everyone has seen these wheels on the darker color IS so I wanted to show what it looked like on a lighter color.

it looks nice, maybe lower a bit more and add some spacers to make it more flush!

Looks very OEM. It's probably the darkness of the picture, but they appear less noticeable on a white car. Better pictures in daylight please! Definitely an improvement and a nice drop though!

Thanks for the positive comments guys. I'm waiting for the coilovers to settle in since this is only day 1 of the install. Anyone know how much further the drop will be after it settles? I'll probably mess with it a little more but not by much. Not looking to be slammed or anything...

from what ive heard coils dont really "settle" and if they do it would be hardly noticeable...so just drop em more and stop looking for an excuse not to do it

I'll probably go a little lower. No rubbing issues so far so that's good. Can anyone else confirm that coilovers don't settle? I was told to ride around for a couple of weeks before getting an alignment.
