Did you still keep the stock tires? If not what did you switch to? They almost look like 18"...

EDIT: Whoops! Just saw on the Tires Forum that you got 18".. How much was the whole package? I am seriously considering getting the same thing very soon!

nice man, those are so low profile tires :) I like the spoke design. What tires did you go with? All you need is a 1 inch drop and your set

they are 18's and i think they look a little small too, but i expected that. it will look more like 18's once it gets lowered

Small!?! Damn, those babys are huge! It's cause the tires are so lo-profile that they look so small. i bet that the total diameter (rim+sidewall) is right around the size of the stock 17's and tires...

Damn, I hope they don't have potholes in NC! I could never get away with tires that small here in Jersey.

yeah those tires are super low pro... i honestly dont really like the look of it. it just increases the wheel gap and plus wont it affect the ride

Yes. Wait for Eibach. Dropping your car with 18's is going to require everything it can get. Eibach kits have progressive rear springs. The more weight goes in the back, Ie. Trunk weight or rear passengers, the progressive springs compensate partially for the weight increase.

You need this as, if your car doesn't rub when dropped with 18's, it will when there are 2 or 3 people in the back. :D
