Vossen CV3 + HR Coil Overs = Winning

Got the coil overs on yesterday. Wow what a difference the drop made. Looks like a different car. 20 x 9 on front with 20 x 10.5 on back.

It works great. Stronger pull through the whole rpm range. I dynoed at 260 whp with the mods on a 115% day. Install took me 30 mins max. Definitely a great mod. Stage 2 is in beta now and should give even more power.

What tires do you use with front 20x9 and rear 20x10,5?
And what ET is the rims, fron and rear?

I have the exact same rim-size, but are struggling to deside wich tiresize would be best.

Are the rims MOT approved, here in Norway I cant get approved 20x9 and 20x10,5

I am running 245/35 with et 35 on the front and 275/30 with et 45 on the rears. You can run 255/30 and 295/25 but then you would not be able to lower it as much. The tires would be more square. I did have to use a little negative camber on the rear to get it that low to avoid rubbing on bumps and dips. Running 2% which is not drastic. Running a half a finger gap between the top of the wheel and the fender so it looks like the tires are tucking.

Eh?!? LOL... Yah I know I was going to block out the plates but really what is the difference I drive around every day? If someone spots the car on the internet and wants to travel here to steal a set of rims, be my guess. They just make sure to be prepared to meet their maker...

OK deleted the two pics after you said something..lol...

Thanks Freddy. Not bad at all actually. Corners on a dime with no body roll. If you hit a big bump it will jolt you but the suspension is good enough it catches instead of bouncing that you get with a lowered vehicle. Not going to say it handles like a ferrari, but the ride is similar.

That is amazing... Totally slammed.

Very tastefully done.
Having always been a lo rider I find stock suspension a nightmare.
