Default Sick!

Dawg!, those are blinging, Your cars gonna look even sweeter with the 18"*.After you get em on we can bug speedy guy for an airbag setup or lowering springs .I think the bonne'* look sweet with the 18"* but lowering them bout an 1" to 1"-1/2 would be even sweeter! Post some pics whem you lace em up dude!

see..the only prob. with lowering it is that in the winter i have to put my stock rims n tires back on and they almost fill the gap so i can't lower it too much. ..maybe an inch max?

Paul? is your car dropped?

I have seen a 1 to 1-1/2" drop on an SLE and it looks damn good, mind you the rims are 16" chromers on Michelin tires that have some side walls (ie no low pro)

But if big rims and low pros are your slice of cake, then don't drop to much, mmm, unless you live in a warm climate

Default Dude!

When i first bought this car,I saw it as a grocery getting family trippin campin mobile.Well to tell you the truth, I,like most of us here fell in love with our bville'*.I have decided not to drive her in the winter and to look for a half decent winter beater .This is by far the best car ive ever owned and i made a pledge that i will take very good care of her.Up here in ottawa the winter'* are pretty tough and the amount of salt they use here is insane.I would love to lower it atleast an inch.I could also do a bank job and get air bags for it ,but thats another wish of mine. Does anybody know of an aftermarket company that has an airbag setup for a bville?
