Hi everyone, kind of on a budget for this but wanted to see what options you guys would pick... Daily driver, the car is bone stock right now. I would love to spend under 5k but I don't think it's happening once I add tires.

Wheels- going with Rays GramLight 57CR (~$1700)
---- 18's or 19s?
-----9.5's or 10s?

Coilovers or springs? Brand/type? Not tracking car
---- drop 1 to 2 inches to fix wheel gap, want to spend $1k max

Brake Pads brand/type for DD?
----- <$600

Brake Rotors brand/type for DD?
------ <$1400

Enthusiast here, not an expert, just my 2 cents

Wheels: Seems 18 x 9.5 is a reliable fitment for these cars.
I'm running XXR 527 18 x 19.75 +20mm offset and the rears barely rub the inner fender on really hard turns.

Brakes: I'm using Stop Tech slotted rotors and Hawk pads. Works well for me.

Suspension: I would do more research and see what fits your driving habits.
But for 1k or less and daily driving only, your looking for springs. I definitely would not suggest getting cheap coilovers.
I bought my Evo with H&R springs, they've done okay for daily driving. But I'm looking to get some Ohlins coilovers, or something similar, soon.

Hope this helps
