These are my favorite wheels by Vossen! One thing i noticed is the car looks good as is with stock wheels but i like it slightly dropped with Vossens.How is the difference in ride quality for you? I am considering getting these exact ones for my car

The good thing about LS's, is that the fender gap is less than most cars..especially like Honda's which are just ridiculous for wheel gap. So about an inch in rear and maybe 1.5" in front..it will sit very nice and probably still ride very good. I am in the market for a white LS460-L with air so I can do just that..but for now, rollin on Tanabe's..which still rides very nice, but having adjustment at the touch of a button is just hella Click the image to open in full size.
