Looks to be the same as stock height even though the car is lowered. The 20's with 30 series tires might be a little taller than the stock 18's with the stock tires.

Never mind did the math and the 20's with 30 series tires they are .3 inches shorter.

Nice! Both are great wheel designs

No scraping coming out of that slope. I think the angle just looks steeper in the pictures.

Yeah, it's definitely lower with the new wheels and springs. Front lip got a huge drop I like how it sits now

Thanks! My tire guy special ordered them for me. He got in contact with RS*R directly. I think they hit the US markets in a few weeks though! That's exciting, yours should arrive in time!

I'm a little surprised how much wheel gap is present with a 2" drop. It must be the stretched tires that give this effect. I wonder if you could go with 235/30 275/30 and still not rub.

I'm on 235/30 275/30 with +38 front and +45 rear on CV3's and stock springs. With 2 persons sitting in the back , the tires rub when i go through a dip in the road or if i go fast over a speed bump

I think the springs still have to settle. I'll keep an eye out on the gap as they settle in. Hmmm... I'd be too nervous if I ran 275 in the rear. I'm glad I went with 255. I'd rather have a stretched look than risk rubbing

Nice. I'm sure those Vossen's look great on your ride. I went with 255 just to be safe.
