    Looks like a 60mm drop, or a 40mm drop with tired springs

    On a side note, get rid of those rear lights before you do anything to it

    First thing is do it makes the arches and skirt paint match the rest of the car, do you have any plans? Glad that you have for some standard lights.

    I'd say that was a 50mm drop

    Well as soon as christmas is out of the way the alloys are going i'd be happy for some steels at the moment as all of the tyres have cracks in and the skirts (i think they're steinmetz reps? Not too sure though?

    What on earth would you want the lexus lights for?! Haha

    What do you thinks wrong with it? The treads wearing equally so it cant be anything too severe?

    Does anyone know what these alloys are called? A couple have centre caps that say 'Smiths' on them but ive had no joy in searching for their name?

    He is saying offset looks wrong, that won't effect the wear at all:

    It just changes how much the wheels sticks out. In simple terms, it's the width
