Rolling on SA-55M 18x9 +20 wheels, and just got lowered on Swift Sport springs. These before and after shots are for those of you thinking of getting either the WedsSports or the springs. So far I'm really happy with both. Hope this helps.

The Springs:

Sorry, needed some more editing before the pics were ready. Here's some more that better show how the 18x9 +20 offset looks:

I really couldn't stand the monster truck suspension at the front anymore and had to do something about it. I liked the greater drop in the front than the back (1"/0.6"), but didn't want it too low overall like some other springs. Also didn't want to compromise ride quality or become a snowplow in the winter as this is my DD.

As for the wheels, I didn't want them too aggressive and went with 18x9 +20 offset, whereas most people seem to choose 18x10 +18. This way my wheels are only out 0.5" less without the need to roll or pull fenders. Plus 265 rubber would fit nicely.

If you want the SA-55M, I think it's either 9" or 10". The only rubbing I've noticed is some occasional rubbing with the plastic inside the front wheel well at full wheel lock. Rolling and pulling won't change that. 265s might worsen that a little, but probably only at full wheel lock. If you go 9.5" it'll depend on the offset you get. Again, a lot of people get these wheels in 18x10 +18, but I think those require at least some rolling. Anyone else feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

I've been considering a drop, but in my area the roads are kinda crappy in a lot of places and I don't want to have to baby my car over and around bumps because of a drop :/
