Lots of suspension work. Lots of body work. Lots if money. Little bit of luck!

Really noting more than running with a profile size of 15, maybe you can get away with a 20. Rubber bands we call them. We have seen such here before on Bonne'* are frankly they look like "donk" outcasts. But to each his own.

Well, I was trying to avoid donking or bands. Guess I'll stick with 20s. I want it raised, but not all up in the air. I may just get some slightly higher profile tires to give me a small lift, if it'll work.

You should be able to fit 20x45 under it. 40'* better. It really depends on the tire wheel combo and something you need to take the car to a wheel/tire place to figure out without spending alot of dough to say, doah!. A larger wheel doesn't mean alot if you find the right profile to end up with the same total height of OEM.

Default 22s

I'm running 22'* now. They fit on the car...just make sure your suspension is up to snuff. shock rear and stuts and tie rods...really...i do have spacers on my springs and thin my car looks good without it being a donk. Next year when im running 22'* again im gonna get a larger rotors and go with the FE2 suspension on my SE.

Do you have pics? What did you have to do to your suspension? How much?
