I have seen many people not beeing happy with the ride height of the TA's. Most people cant go low enough without removing helpers and/or changing springs. If you do that, your warranty is not valid any longer. FK's, H&R's and KW's are more expensive, go lower and offer a better ride. 

 

In the above pictures of my car is lowered around 70 mm with another 25-30 mm of treads left on the front. With the adjusters at the bottom of the KW kit with the helpers in and on 175/50-13 I had around 30 mm clearance betwen the road and the cat.

 

9olos car on 195/45 or 195/40-14 back in the days, on FK's I belive

Fk automotive don't make them for this car, only limited companies do and they're all on that link posted above

I had 15's on mine so long as you get skinny tyres you could go low

They don't anymore? They used to...

 

KW and H&R would be my choices. Mines has been on KW's sine 1999

 

As for wheels, I have used anything from 13's with 175/50 to 16's with 195/40 but the best allround choice for me have been 8-14 ET 20 with 195/45-14. They fit fine, unless you have a squareback like mine

 

I vote no for rear camber

In Topic: Face mounting wheels without machining..

27 March 2015 - 12:00 PM

Depends if the center is machined like that from the manufacturer. It also depends on the shape of the barrel and lip

 

I know you can face mount BBS RS and OZ Futuras using spacers between the lip and barrel

 

The lips and barell should rest on the face of the center and not just be held together with the bolts, as these will shear!
