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 http://www.taperpro.co.uk/2012/

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?
