    Lowered 2 inches and running on 20in rims. See pic, fills out guards well and while some people on here say it should be lower the hight its at now is still sensible and drivable without scraping driveways and speedhumps.

    The 20s dont give as harsh a ride as you would expect.

    ahhh them kinda tyres.... be careful then, i had a car (modded 5series bmw) that would spin the 1-2 change chirp 3rd at 115k's then put some sticky tyres on it barley chirp 1-2 change and launched much much harder.....


    the downside... too much off the line grip snapped the diff housing off the chassis!! so go easy on the box and diff..... ... although for fast driving grippy tyres are much better than povo ones... although i was getting 5k out of tyres on the rear OMG, ahh thats lsd and manual, in a smallish decent powered rwd for ya...

    Sorry to hijack the thread. What kind of rims do you have on your avatar?

    Also what tyre profile could we put to 380 without rubbing?

    225/30/R20s wont rub.. 225/35/R20s probably wont rub either depending how much you plan to lower your 380

    yeah i only got 18's but they 235's and they used to rub on the flare kit (similar to ralliart flares) and take massive chunks out of the tyre, so i had to get the flares sanded back, next time im definately goin for 225's
