I must admit those wheels look sharp on your car.

Dont you mean H&R? Also, you didnt change the struts and shocks? Youll kill them.
yes I meant to say H&R, I fixed original post, thanks. Right only springs where changed, I had my local Mazda dealer changed them to avoid issues with warranty, and they where ok with them. Please let me know why you think they will kill struts and shocks?

They'll wear the struts more quickly than OEM because they add a bit more pressure to them. Typically you'll want to upgrade struts with lowering springs so they can properly handle it. You'll be fine for a while, they'll just wear a little more quickly is all.

That and it puts them outside their normal range of motion so they arent as effective. The increased rate can possibly blow them too.

I have to give it up to you. It looks phenomenal!! Lowering mine has been an “on again/off again” internal struggle. “Do I” or “don’t I?” 🤷🏼‍♂️
One of these days I’ll get off high-center and make up my mind. I had agonized over dropping wheel diameters from 19” down to 18”. That turned out to be of my better decisions. With more sidewall flex in the 225/55/18 Pirelli’s the ride is pure driving joy.

Thank you for your feedback , glad you like the look :). So far I'm very happy with the decision to lowering it so it gives it that aggressive stance without sacrificing too much ride quality

Thank you so much for the valuable input, what struts and shocks would you recommend I use for those springs?
