Here is a photo of my Wheel Set up. Black Chrome by Detroit Wheel and Tire , Black Center Cap, Black Lugs by Gorilla, Power Stop Z23 Break Kit. Having some issues with fitment of the front break pads. Working with Power Stop on that.

Don't break your brake pads and you shouldn't have any issues while using the brakes on your car and you won't break the bank.

Purchased a Steeda Front Sway Bar from @BlueThunder. Figured why I was having the Lowering Springs and spacers installed, I would let them go ahead and do this. Can't wait to get the Sway Bar so I can get it painted. Thanks, @BlueThunder for the easy process and the great deal!

My intent was to show the side of the car in order to show how the tires spaces in the wheel wells.

Well, nobody really "needs" wheel spacers. My purpose was to push the wheel out closer to the edge of the wheel well. Our wheels look like they are sitting in a cave, stock. Once you lower the car, the cave look is even more pronounced.

The spacers do give you a 40mm wider stance. With all the changes, lowering, front & rear swaybar and spacers, the cornering is much improved.

So a wheel with a +40mm offset will give you the same effect?

I had the guys @ Luxe Auto Concepts do it for $350. They are local here and the owner, John is a great guy.

Many guys on here do it themselves for a lot less. I am just not that patient for that kind of work.

It was a 3M Gloss Black. Don't have a part number.

Yes, I agree. But, painting is not easily reversible.
