BA XR's had 18's as an option so i think you will be fine. Honestly my 6T is not lowered and it scrapes all the time as it is. If you lower it, it will be a pain. There is BA XR6 at my work. If i get a chance and no one is around ill go measure the ride height and let you know.

was just wondering if any one out there knows how low you go on a BA XR6? and any photos would be great. got king springs SL in already and didnt lower it much. really chasing the "dumped" look.

Guards generally only need to be rolled on smaller cars with much larger than factory rims (eg a swift with 20 inch rims lol, and yes iv'e seen1) I put 19.5's on my ED no probs no scraps or noises except backing out of my wierd a** completeley unevean driveway. Hard to describe my driveway, b ut its so aqnormal its no9t funny
