    The front tire is tucked but I'm sure it wont be this way once it's aligned. I like the look personally. When i replace tires ill probably get some 195/50/15's. Its rubs a little when i hit a bump while turning. These pics were taken at nite. I'll take some better pics tomorrow. What do you think? Good or bad.

    Waaay too much rake and too low in the front.. Alignment isn't going to change how the ride height is.

    that much rake is from the uneven ground and soft springs. A 195/50 tire would do you well

    It will look better with the 50 series and you can get lower.

    Here are pics on level ground. I think it's fine personally.

    Thanks!!

    I will sooner than I probably want to. I'm sure they won't get my alignment right and I'll have some irregular wear

    I'd go with 205/50 or 195/55 personally

    How low are you dropped on the Neuspeed Springs? 2.5/2.3?

    I knew I should've gone with the Neuspeed springs back when I was spring shopping. Now I'm stuck with my uneven Eibach Sportline drop that isn't low enough for me.

    Looks great! :thumbs up.

    Thanks. Not sure of how much drop. I didn't measure. About to drop it off for alignment

    It looks good. I say 195/55 or 195/50 both sound good. not sure if you can fit a 205/50 but that would probably be great too.
    I hated the 205/40 i had on my 17"

    I know you all say no camber kit but if I decide to what kit do you recommend? Is this something that needs to be top of the line as well?

    Also what do I need to do to the fender wells to prevent rubbing. It appears if I get the tires straight up its going to rub the inner fender cover. Remove this, trim it?

    i use an omni power camber kit up front, has worked perfect over the past year and faced tons of abuse. survived the smashing through my strut towers

    as for the rubbing on the fender liner, its just thin plastic. let it go and let it melt itself through. you will be fine. you can trim it if you want but you dont need to
