Finally got my wheels refurbished and put the wheels on my car, only problem is it sits high and will need lowering. In a dilema, do I lower it using Eibach springs or get coilovers.

I used Taperpro wheel and locking nuts £35 delivered from [url="http://www.taperpro.co.uk/2012/"]http://www.taperpro.co.uk/2012/[/url]

I purchased the steel nuts as the alloy ones were approx £80!

Arent the steel nuts for steel wheels?
It may be the angle but do they tyres sit out past the arches?

not neccesarilly my friend. The OEM ones have an alloy cap but the rest is made of steel and they were on my old alloys.

The angle is decieving the wheels look like they sit out from the arches and would rub if u lowered it from the angle of the picture
