I just got a set of 18" black with machined lip enkie lusso's and a set of goodyear gt's 235/45/18. I got them from tire rack and the fit is perfect. What you guys think?

Is it weird that I actually like the wheel gaps how they are? :3

I have been thinking of lowering it but I drive 80 miles one way to work all on the interstate. Im not sure how practical it would be since here in MS there are tons of pot holes and dips and just plain crap all over the roads. For the guys lowered how is the ground clearance for like driveways and speed bumps? Also what about ride quality and durability of the lowering springs?

lower on the highway means more AREODYNAMICS which equals more fuel economy

Looking good. I looked at those as well they just did not have a finish I thought went well enough with my blue.

I like symmetrical gaps... looking at the pic, I think it would look nice at an inch or two lower, but anything more I wouldn't like as much.
