H&R sport/Bilstein B8 with 235/45r17(base 328)

Thought I'd share a couple pics of my setup. I now think stock 17-inch wheels can handle 245/45r17 sized Michelin PSS as well, but i wasn't sure back then.

However, I like how it looks after the springs settled down. Ride height is pretty low due to smaller diameter of tires. I am very satisfied with the performance, but the odometer over-reading is quite annoying. My next shopping list would be 19" rims.

EAS did a great job on installing shocks and springs. Besides that It was a great deal, I don't think I'd ever need a wheel alignment.

Cool.

And yes...you need an alignment. You just took the suspension apart and put it back together.

Your are correct. Since my tires are at 20% and I am going to replace wheels when they are done, just leaving them seems more cost efficient to me.
