    Hey all- seems everyone posting their sweet aftermarket wheel setups has air suspension. When I ordered my car I assumed the coils could be lowered when going with aftermarket wheels, but I screwed up and now I can't lower the car. So... here I am with 22's and low profile tires and wish I can go lower, or even maybe go with a 20" setup with thicker tires to fill the wheel wells in.

    So, lets see pics of your aftermarket wheels on your COIL suspension only, so those with the springs can make a good decision on what aftermarket setup we should go with! I am currently selling these to go to a 20" setup or even the factory 21" grey turbines, but I may just stick with these after all because I like them so much. What do you guys think about these w/ coil suspension??

    Here is my ride running the following:

    Avant Garde M310 in custom Gloss Gunmetal finish (staggered set)
    Front: 22x9 33mm offset w/ Nitto Invo 255/35/22 (slight rub when at extreme reverse angle)
    Rear: 22x10.5 38mm offset w/ Nitto Invo 295/25/22

    20" Avant Garde Matte Black M310s on coils:

    245/40R20 (don't remember the other specs). I was worried about the coils sitting too high, but I think they're fine.

    Nice man.. I just gotta decide if it looks better with smaller rim/bigger tire or bigger rim/smaller tire!

    I think the M310s look great no matter which way you go. Smaller rim/bigger tire might be more practical though!

    Very true! I am very surprised how well these things ride though, barely a difference over the stock 19's from what I can tell. Then again, it handled like crap and felt wobbly with those little 245's.. this thing handles like an M5 now with these wide wheels and tires, so thats a plus..

    Wow, 350+ views and no one else has pics of their aftermarket wheels on coil suspension? Could it be no one gets aftermarket wheels unless they have air suspension lol
