Re: Finally got my wheels..18\'s

if you install lowering springs without proper struts you will have to replace the sturts later on. they will work for a while but you really should just do it all at once. becuz you have to get it aligned when you drop it and if you have to go back and do the struts/shocks again then you will have to get it aligned again

A friend of mine that does body/paint for a living does a lot of bumper painting for people that want their lisence plate holes filled on new cars etc...says he usually charges around $400 including materials. This is the cost for all prep work(he says its often a pain to get the area around the holes straight) and painting the entire bumper. Since you probly dont need much prep work done I would think the price would be close.

Thats the same setup I use to have. Good luck bro. 215/35/18 is pretty small for those wheels. Watch the potholes etc..., Mine happened to bend pretty easy. Looks great though...

Those are defiently knockoffs, I don't think you can touch C5's for $900, let alone with tires, too.
