Thumbs up Rimmed Up and Dropped

So my ride is finally complete and ready for my twin boys due next week.

Strasse Forged SM8 Step Lip
Polish Lip / 20x9 Front - 20x10.5 Rear
Wrapped in Hankooks
Thank you Rob@StrasseForged (A pleasure doing business with you). Highly recommend doing business with this company.

Dropped on H&R Springs
Thank you to Alex and Kevin @ AKMotorwerk. You guys are the BOMB! They kept their word on price and time for installation. Highly recommend anyone in the Tri-State area to reach out to them.

Lumens 6000K HID Kit for the fog lights Super White
installed by Joe @ Vortex. No errors no issues.
Not exact match but close enough for me.

What I love about that color is how it looks so different depending on lighting, weather, time of day, etc. it's like having a new paint job every day.

You are so right about that. My friends say the same exact thing.

The ride hasn't change much at all. Still smooth.....I've read some harsh responses to H&R springs. All I can say is they work for me.

KB7 was the inspiration I was using to make my judgement on the same wheels you both have, but when I spoke with Wheel Addicts he gave me a deal I couldn't pass on.

Thanks Lacster! I considered it but I doubt it. I think that's my final answer.
