Wanted:Pics of 19" wheels/Lowering Springs

I just bought a set of Eurotech 19' wheels, and I am waiting for delivery. I have the Eibach Pro Kit, and would like to see anyone else who has 19z and a lowered Box.

This is mine with Elbachs and 19s

No problems at all.

Another picture. The car is lower here than with the Elbachs. The center of the wheel wells with this drop is about 24.5 from the ground at the center of the tires.

Funny you were the first to post pics. I just spent the last 1/2 hour checking out your photo album on PCARS. Looks great!! What size tires did you put on? Did you put any spacers on? Any issues with clearance?

I think white Porsches with black rims look great. Super racy and high tech.

The tire sizes are 235 35 19 and in the rear 275 30 19
The next time I may go to 285s in the rear I know of a few guys running 285s in the rear and on my rims I think it will look even better. The only thing I had to do was zip tie the hand brake cable around the back of the struts to keep it from rubbing on the rim.

I also had to put adjustable toe arms on the rear of the car to bring the toe back within spec,I was going through rear tires in 6000 miles. I had the tire eating issue long before the rims so I believe the toe problem was a result of the lowering not the rims.
