Anyway, I am still happy with my Pzeros, at least they are more comfy than the stock Conti run flats (they are pretty harsh for 18"). I wish I have got the Pilot Super Sport though but my sizes were out of stock locally.



Yea, these are the new MV2's. It seems that ADV.1 has improved their qualities (inner barrels are now painted and valve stems are now included although one of them is broken lol!!!). Anyway, I am going to follow your route on getting KW V2 (lowering by 1/2" f/r should be enough). V3 is just too complicated to fiddle with and I have never been able to find the right setting for PSS10.
If you mean KW V2 will lower 1/2" front and rear... absolutely no way. You'll be slammed.

Dropped with KW V2:

This needs fine tune and alignment after settled. Unlike the earlier V2's I've seen on this forum, my rears are adjusted to almost the lowest (probably just 5-7mm to go) but the fronts are set at almost the highest. So pretty means I don't have much room for setting the height...



Good news is that my rears doesn't rub.

for some reason on the f30....20's look a tad too big for the car and 19"s look a tad to small .

Need a 19.5" Wheel please :P.

The car looks amazing, and I love the rake and drop.

DOPE set up!

Your front is 20x8.5" ET30 235/35/20

Ok, this is a newb question: The larger the ET numbers are, it means the closest the wheels to the shocks/struts (wheels are more "hidden" inside the fender); conversely, the lower the ET numbers are, the closest the wheels to the fender (i.e the wheels come out from the fender). Am I correct so far?

Yes, you are correct, in general. Offset (ET) is the measurement in mm from the center of the wheel to the mounting point, where the backpad of the wheel meets the hub of the car. As the wheel width changes, so does offset. For example, 10" wide ET40 is closer to the fender than 8.5" ET30, even though the offset is higher. It's a concept that takes some time to fully understand, but pretty straightforward once you know how it works. There are some great explanations with graphics and offset calculators out there that are very helpful, if you care enough.
