also, are you at the lowest height setting on the tanabe coils? was thinking about getting them, but wasnt sure if i would be able to go low enough. wanted to tuck the tires a little bit.

17x9 front back with 22 offset 205/40/17 tires ...tanabe springs not coilovers

it was hard to decide what offset or size wheels would look good no info on modded Insights I want to go with lower offset wheels next year maybe go stock 17" wheels with 5 lug swap from CR-Z and air suspension

I had to get the tool to roll my fenders as mines rubbed the inner wheel wells.

Tirerack had some white rims, but they were made in China. I ended up with some grey Foise(SP?) since they are made in Japan.
