Should I drop my car?

I am getting Giovanna Anzio rims in a couple of days (can't wait), do you think I will have to drop my car so that it doesn't look to high or because they are only 18's I should be ok...if you think i need to drop how much should that cost?

I agree, I am glad I didn't get rims for my car before I lowered it.

Get your rims put on then lower it. It makes more sense that way.
