Default Just a few pics of something different....

I decided to wash and wax my car today since it was nice to get it ready for winter. I did a bunch of work the past week underneath to get it this low and just thought I would share. Most people won't like it but I don't care.











The lows:



I hope to pick up some wheels in the spring and change a few cosmetic things in the front. Find a lip, clear corners, body color bezels, and a few other things.

You've definitely got the low figured out. Can't wait to see it on some new wheels man.

That's certainly one great part of this forum. You can take the right steps to modding any car and we will support it to the fullest. You are doing this car right. No doubt about it.

Thanks man. This car has been a headache but part of me is glad I stick with it because its different.

I do know what wheels and specs I want to run and I'm pretty sure they have never been done on a car like this. I'm gonna keep it classy, so there wont be any steelies, rota's. xxr's, etc. I've decided to save up and do it right.

It's low.....

It's clean....

...and I still don't know what it is!

But throw some matte black wheels on it and this thing will look sinister!

.... and I STILL don't know what kind of car this is.

Is it a Kia?

Thanks everyone.

Yeah, the car is an 06 Kia Spectra. Sitting on Megan Racing Street Coilovers with shorter springs for the front coils. Trimmed fender liners (because winter), modified wheel wells for clearance, a little cv boot work so I could thread the coils down more, and removed front swaybar because of binding.

But we need some wheels to complete it. Cant wait to see what you throw on there, but I say something with a little color to it maybe.

cars height is great. really makes the car. i understand about wanting to save up for the right wheels but i think it would look great with a set of wide steelies in the mean time. they are cheap and super customizeable.

out of curisity what are your wheel specs as in what do you want to run
PCD ET DIAMETER WIDTH?

Wheels:

17x8 front et 20ish
17x9 rear et 20ish.
PCD is 4x114.3

I need to take some more measurements at it's current height to figure out perfect offsets. I'll probably run 195/40's front and rear and add camber to the front and add a bit to the rear.
