It will look decent with some spacers. Otherwise they will look tucked

What the offset on Sportsline wheel? Vogz is right, spacers will transform the look of your car.

Here’s a sideview of my car. Still on 18 but lowered by 1.5”. But mine is a Rota Wheels staggered setup. Fr 18x8.5 +30 offset, Rr 18x9.5 +35. They’re on Michelin 245/45r18 and 275/40r18. Compare to stock, my front wheel sticks out by 10mm, rear sticks out by about 17.5mm

do you scrape having your setup like that? my current 20 inch with the 1.5 drop never scrapes. I'm hoping the 18s doesn't drop It too much

Your car looks great. I think 20" or 19" will always look better than 18" when lowered, but for California road, 18" is a safer bet.
So far I haven't scraped. Currently I only have 3.75" of clearance. The only scrape I got is when they unload my car down the ramp when they did the alignment and cracked the plastic moulding.

I hear you on that bro. my daily commute is between 80-150 miles due to work and after work activities. and even though I live in Miami there are tons of potholes I hit. Your stance on the 18s look great, will post when I install!

are they any cons to having spacers on the car? will It affect range, speed, etc?
It would probably not affect range unless you went super aggressive and they stuck out past the fenders. 20mm rear and 5mm front would ensure that you wouldn't have that problem.

18s won't make your car any lower if you stay with factory tire sizes. The diameter of the factory 20s and factory 18s with tires is virtually identical.
