hey guys,
i have recently put 16 inch wheels on my car and i dont know whether i should lower it or not. i know if i did id have to modify guard so they dont rub. if i did lower it id probably go about inch to inch and half. what r ur opinons?

if you want to do it... go for it.. it make the car look great and if you do it well ( buy spring kit + absorber) your car will stick to the road...

i will have my 16'' wheel next wheel to.. dont i wont drop. because i find the handlig of my E30 perfect for my need, and I have other thing in my life that need money... But still suspension + wheel his a good mod

Lower it, just don't go as low as i did. Its a real pain in the ass....(2.5 all around)

I donno how bad the roads are where u live.

They are pretty bad here in toronto, but it wasn't as bad as i thought.

If u enjoy driving and dont mind it a little harsh on bumps go for it

Suspension should be the first mod done to any car. Looks and performs so much better.

What size tires are you running?

Lower it! with 16's...you'll truly understand your love for Beemers!*th-up*

1.5" is a good drop.
