New wheels and a drop: Vossen CV5's (matte graphite) and RS*R Down Springs My tire guy was informed that mine is the first 3IS to run such offset wheels with RS*R lowering springs. Pretty cool Install went down yesterday and everything came out perfect! Props to Arthur at F1 Automotive Group in Glendale

Specs:
Vossen CV5 20x9 ET32 | 20x10.5 ET45
Tires: Hankook V12's: Front: 225/30/20. Rear: 255/30/20
RS*R Down Lowering Springs

Great looking combo! Also interested in your tire size, offset, and how much you lowered the car. Any rubbing issues?

Front: 225/30/20. Rear: 255/30/20. A little stretched but I like the look Any wider and there might be rubbing.

Thanks Rasta! Vossen's fitting is on point. But I'm sure you knew that already

Tires: Front: 225/30/20. Rear: 255/30/20. Offsets: 45 in the rear and 32 front. RS*R Down's lower it approximately 1.3 inches and I haven't experienced any rubbing.

Very nice! Similar setup to what I want to run just a different Vossen wheel. Any rubbing issues? How do the 30's ride?

Thanks Stitch! Yes, the matte graphite color will definitely hide some of the brake dust. One reason I went this direction.

Thanks Skinny! Can't go wrong with Vossen's. Which ones are you looking at? No rubbing with my setup and the 30's ride fine. Obviously not the same exact ride as with stock tires but I can hardly notice any difference.

Either going with the VVSCV3's or VVSCV4's in gun metal just not sure which one yet. Most likely will wait for sprig to come around before getting them. Will gather parts over the winter while waiting for parts to come out.
