Hey,

As you know im in the process of major mods to my car ( pics soon )

Im not sure what wheel / front bar and weather or not to fit side skirts or not....

Engine is getting turbo'd. I have a pro scoop on the bonnet.
And I was going to fit a set of 15x8 on the rear with 265/50/15s and 15x3.5s on the front. slam the a*** end and have the front slightly higher than the rear.
This would give a tuff look + would put the power to the ground quiet well.

The other wheels I was thinking was a nice set of chrome 18x8s. But they wont hook up anywhere near as well as what the 15s would.....but the 18s would make the car handle a s**t load better.

Im unsure.

And with the body kit, I just want a front bar with a larger opening to allow more air to the cooler. I dont want to go over the top. Cause if I go the 15inch wheels and tyres It just wont look right!!! And I dont think fitting side skirts and stuff would look any good with this setup either. What do people think? Opinions?

The 18s would look nice, handle well, look good with a body kit and side skirts. Not sure what it would look like with the pro scoop on the bonnet though..... But trademark is traction will suffer bad. And I want the car to go.

Depends on what your after street, drag or circuit.. personally id go for some nice fat 17's not too harsh on the wallet when replacing rubber and still look good.....

*Shudder* Nothing looks worse than a rear lower than the front in my opinion.

No offence, opinions are like a**hole, everyone has one.
